Located in the heart of Bringhi valley, Kokernag is set amidst extensive gardens fragrant with the bloom of thousands of flowers. The Kokernag spring flows at seven places in the foot of the forested mountain. It is believed that the water of the spring is popular worldwide for its medicinal and digestive properties. This beautiful spring gushes out of the base of a thickly wooded hill, from where it separates into channels that bear an eerie resemblance to the claw-foot of a hen, thus this place is named Kokernag. The great Mughal historian, Abul Fazl, has recorded for posterity the benefits of the sweet water spring of Kokernag. This place is also known for its various tourist attractions such as Kokernag Botanical Garden, Papashudan Nad / Kokernag Waterfall, Kokernag Rose Garden, Achabal etc. Being a naturally blessed place, many visitors plan Kokernag vacation during their holidays.
