Chandanwari is basically a base camp for Amarnath yatra that is heald every year. Visit it in winters, in summer this place has nothing to offer and it is very crowded.

We were very disappointing to go to this place. We visited in June when there was hardly any snow, It was meted sleet which was very dirty. Overall the pace is crowded and filthy. On top of it the local people are hounding you for renting the boots and coats and fleecing you with a lot of money. They tell... More

We went while it snowed previous night so it was all white... More

if in pahalgam do visit chandanwari. the roads towards it is very scenic and do take the local drivers as the roads are very curvy. also tourism is one of their source of income. you will get to see glacier, though be ready with proper winter wear. there are few activities to do and small dhabas for food.

I visited this place 2-3 times in summer from 2014-16 with different guest so i can say if you just want to have glimpse of Snow or Glacier, you can go there, you can see how River flows beneath Glacier and how one can experience walking on Glacier, where river is flowing below that ice. market is small and only...

Visit Chandanwadi if you are in Pahalgam due to its religious significance as Amarnath Yatra starts from here. The drive from Pahalgam to Chandanwadi is very scenic and you will enjoy the valleys, streams, rivers and melting ice into the river. It is always good to go with local drivers and local transport due to extreme sloppy roads. At Chandanwadi,... More
