Paddy field in Leepa valley
|Time zone||UTC+05:00 (PST)|
Leepa Valley was formerly part of Karnah tehsil of Kupwara district in Jammu and Kashmir, India. The valley is now part of Jhelum Valley District in Azad Kashmir, Pakistan. It has been an area of strife among the two neighboring countries.
The population of Leepa Valley is about 80,000.
Rice and apple fields can be found frequently in the whole valley. The Line of Control, which separates it from Jammu and Kashmir, can be seen from anywhere while standing in the valley from east to west. Its lush green river fields in summer and typical wooden kashmiri houses present a wonderful view to the tourists.
