HOUEN HENG

Category Adventure, Natural / Scenic beauty

A piece of tragic history lies buried under Kulgam’s snow covered Houen Heng (Dog’s Horn) peak (4200 ft above sea level). On 7th February 1966 a Fokker F 27 IA aircraft veered 12 miles off its course, crashing straight into the mountain, claiming all 37 lives on board. People recount a civil society campaign to recover the corpses from their snowy graves, led by a local businessman who lost his son in the crash. Time stands still here as the debries, well preserved to this day, beckon visitors to hear their tale.
