Kashmir Trekking Geographical Features
The greater part of the valley is made of similar disposition of vale and mountains, as is
observable in all these alpines regions, and consists of series of mountains ranges of
Himalayas, running mostly in parallel lines from south -west to north and east, separated
by glens, which are in general of no great breadth.The chief peculiarity by which
Kashmir is distinguished from the mountain countries on its confines is the richness of
its vegetation. the mountains, although for a considerable part of the year capped in
many parts with snow, are coated with rich forests.The chief river of Kashmir is river
jehlum (Vitastha)(Behut),the Hydraspes of the ancients.This rises at angle of the
mountains, chiefly from the springs of Virnag, in the south -east extremity of Kashmir. It
is immediately joined by a stream from the south , the Kaimu River , and another from
the north ,the river Brang. This latter rises by two heads in the district of the same
name,to the east of Anatnag, at eight miles distance. it again divides two branches the
more northerly of which is joined by a small stream from Kotonhara, and the more
southerly by the stream from Virnag :the two main trunks again meet near anatnag and
form the River jehlum,which,as it proceeds,receives other streams, as the Lambodari
River or Lidder River from the north-east , on the road of Amarnath, and the Shupien or
Shuingulu river, which is formed by various rivulets from the north of the Pir panjal
mountain ranges.The sindh river,which takes its main source from Zoje la pass, thajiwas
glacier and from glacier streams forms its own valley. Sind valley sonamarg .
