Poonch/Punch

Poonch/Punch , Jammu and Kashmir

The Poonch district is a part of Jammu and Kashmir but half of it lies in Pakistan. This is a place through which the line of control runs and it is also a place that is under constant guard. This is another glorious place that has very badly been ripped apart by strife. A part of the heaven on earth, this district showcases the beauty of Jammu and Kashmir to the fullest. The Pir Panjal range of mountain separate the Poonch valley from the Kashmir Valley. A place that mostly has a temperate climate this is a perfect place to visit all through the year. A place that has a lot of natural wonders to visit, Poonch will never bore you. Poonch is set amidst snow-capped mountains, meandering lakes and streams, with the fertile soil supporting abundant growth of fruits, flowers, forests and other natural vegetation. This is the perfect land for all the tourists who want a taste of the glories of Kashmir. A place that is the perfect balance of the mountains and the verdant valleys which are covered with beautiful flowers and lovely people, the country is glad that part of this district is still in India. Tourists visiting Poonch often go to the Noori Chammb. It has been named after the Mughal Queen Noor Jahan and is famous for its scenic beauty and water fall. Nangali Sahib Gurudwara is located on a hill at a distance of 7 km from Poonch and is the main attraction of this town. The pooch Quila is a fort which is famous for being a mixture of Mughal, Sikh and European architecture. This is definitely a place that should be on the top of your list.
