Sinthan Top emerges as winter wonderland amidst dry spell in Kashmir

Sinthan Top emerges as winter wonderland amidst dry spell in Kashmir While other tourist spots in the Valley lack snow, Sinthan Top in South Kashmir emerges as a hidden gem, serving as the sole tourist spot with a snowy landscape and drawing tourists from across the country.
Situated at an altitude of approximately 12,500 feet, Sinthan Top serves as a vital link connecting Anantnag in South Kashmir to Kishtwar in the Jammu region via Kokernag. Tourists, disheartened by the lack of snow-covered mountains in well-known destinations during this time of the year, are finding solace in Sinthan Top, transforming it into a sought-after winter wonderland.
The current dry winter spell, described as the worst in the last two decades, has left popular tourist spots barren, prompting a redirection of snow-loving tourists towards Sinthan Top. Tourist operators, facing potential cancellations, have embraced the newfound attraction.
