The little hill-station of Patnitop came into prominence when militancy took its toll of the tourism industry in Kashmir. this also helped Patnitop come into its own as a full-fledged destination. It no longer remained a place for weekend visitors. The infrastructure developed, many people from Jammu built second homes, the trails became better explored and new activities came along. The place-name Patnitop, is believed to have originated from the local phrase (Patan da Talaba), or the pond of the princess. Again local lore has it that there was once a pond on the grassy slopes and this was where a princess used to bathe.
People from far and wide come here to pay homage at the shrine of the deity. Followers of the deity make it a point to visit the shrine at least once in their lifetime as they believe it brings them good luck and washes away their sins. Its spiritual worth and the mythologies associated attract both random travelers and devotees. we take you to one of the popular shrines of Patnitop – the Nag Temple. Thereafter, you can indulge in some sightseeing, which includes a visit to the Pandora Enclave, Sanasar (famous as mini Gulmarg regarded as one of the most remote areas of India) and Nathatop (famous for adventure activities like paragliding).
