There is no denial in the fact that Kashmir is Paradise on earth and has innumerous places of beauty and landscapes. But most of the places are still hidden beneath the handful places because of publicity and well connectivity and facilities.
The most of the charming beauties lie far from the human view. They are yet to be discovered, to be seen, to be enjoyed and most importantly to be visited.
Here in Kupwara district of the Valley, we have various places of enormous beauty and charm. They include Lolab Valley, Bangus Valey, Karnah valley and many other places as well.
But there are various other places, which need to be explored.
DUTT in kralpora area is one of them. Visible from every side of the Kralpora area, a hilltop place called ‘DUTT’ lies at the top of the Village Rashanpora.An 8km drive from Kralpora can land you to Rashanpora, where from a good Trek starts, which consumes about 3 hours while trekking through the bushes till you reach the Top.
On arrival, a vast open lush green ground welcomes you. For your surprise DUTT will give you a view of whole kralpora area, in the day if it is sunny, so will you enjoy the hook view.
There is a Ziarah(shrine) on the hilltop also, which looks like a mini house.
From backside is North Hill which is nearby to the area, an Army controlled area.
You just need to have a good trekking capacity to reachout to DUTT. You will surely enjoy, it is just love to visit once and have fun.
