This enchanting destination boasts breathtaking beauty, thrilling adventures, and, unlike its counterparts, a generous blanket of snow.

Just a 30-34km winding uphill drive from Daksum and 70 kilometers from Anantnag, Sinthan Top is quickly transforming into a haven for adrenaline-seekers. Trekkers, mountaineers, and skiers are flocking to experience its untouched slopes and exhilarating panoramas.
