Srinagar , Jammu and Kashmir

A small town abour 22 km from Srinagar in Jammu and Kashmir, Daachigam is today one of the most important and well preserved national parks. Translating to the meaning of ten villages it is actually named after the ten villages that moved into this area where today the national park stands. This is a protected area and has been as far back as 1910 when it was protected by the Maharaja of Jammu and kashmr himself. Later on it was taken over by the government of India when they realised the fauna of this place is truly unique and in this world dwindling quite fast. Initially Daachigam was built so that the water supply to Srinagar remained pure. Later on it was converted into the famed national park. Thus there is still a lot of evidence of the water pipes that had once been the purpose of this place coming into existence. It is said that even today Daachigam has some of the purest water to be found in India. Of course seeing the location, it is quite evident why. As for the wildlife sanctuary, The mountainsides below the tree line are heavily wooded. Interspersed between these are alpine pastures, meadows, waterfalls and scrub vegetation with deep gullies, locally known as Nars, running down the mountain face. Most of the grasslands and meadows, except in the harsh winters, are covered with brightly coloured flowers. The Marsar Lake, a beautiful addition to this already breathtaking place flows into the Dagwan river completing the entire scenery. It is not very difficult for anyone to imagine how absolutely stunning this place is and how much it is in need of protection.
