Kulgam, boasts of being a newly created district and has its origin in Anantnag. Administratively functional from 2nd April, 2007, it is criss crossed by the waters of Nallah Veshav. Nallah Veshav happens to be the left bank tributary of Jhelum River and drains the northern precincts of Pir Panjal—transforming the landscapes of Kulgam into a haven for nature enthusiasts and those looking for a beautiful location, far from the maddening urban crowds.
Kulgam is a picturesque town located at 75.02 E longitude/33.15 N latitude and lies in the lap of the scenic Peer Panchal Range. The town’s main attraction is River Veshew, which meanders across a sloppy Karewa—all the way from Larow to Chawalgam. Located at a distance of 17 kms from Anantnag and 68 kms from Srinagar, Kulgam is connected by a well maintained network of roads with the neighboring districts of Shopian, Anantnag, Pulwama and Ramban. A must visit indeed!
