The 'Intezzar' song from the 'Paap' movie picturizing starring John Abraham and Udita Goswami is not easy to forget not because Udita was looking gorgeous and beautiful but because of the beautiful valley that she walks through while the song progresses. 

Yes, it was a slight glimpse of the mesmerizing Pin Valley.

It showcases the wildly furious Pin River amidst the green vistas and the snow-capped mountains. With sunny weather and strong winds blowing in miles of isolation, the Pin valley presents the beautiful stunning views of serenity with colorful flowers blossoming all around transforming the shades of the desert to acres of greenery in the backdrop of pristine waterfalls to make one escape in nature.
