Periphery of Pir Panjal

 

 

Pir Panjal Range, Himalayas

The word “Pir Panjal” means “Saint’s Mountain.” The Pir Panjal Range, running from north west to south east in North India, stretches between the Kishan Ganga Gorge in Jammu and Kashmir (J&K) and Deo Tibba in Himachal Pradesh (H.P.). One of the principal ranges of the lofty Himalaya, the Pir Panjal bathes in rain during monsoon season and hides behind sparkling snow in winter. The snow cover may even reach to two (2) meters of depth especially beyond the pastures. The verdant pastures decorated with wildflowers completely complement the landscape near tree line.
