Accompanied with the Pir Panjal ranges that enhance this paradise’s natural divinity, the state offers excellent vantage points, sparkling lakes, spotless scenery, and undulating meadows filled with wild flowers.

One other aspect that goes beyond anyone’s imagination is the presence of seven heavenly lakes in the Kashmir region. On this Kashmir lakes trek, you’ve the unbeatable opportunity of traversing high altitude meadow trails that take you through breath taking scenes eventually leading you to turquoise lakes.


Itinerary

  • Day 1 -

    Following your arrival in Srinagar, spend some time of the day exploring the popular local sights such as Dal Lake and Mughal Gardens. After a 4 hours short drive through mountainous roads with picturesque vistas of streams, rivers, and brooks arrive at Sonmarg or the starting point of the trek by evening. Camps will be arranged in here for an overnight stay.

  • Day 2 -

    Begin your Kashmir Great Lakes Trekking today, the most unforgettable experience of your life! Get started with the trek at around 0800AM and trail through the rough and rugged terrains for around 3km till you reach a dhaba on the way. Pack a meal for the rest of the journey and keep following the Sindh River. Passing through the lush maple forests, the trek will gain altitude and finally will lead you to the scenic valleys of Nichnai. Arriving at the campsite, relax and make yourself comfortable for an overnight stay.   

  • Day 3 -

    Today’s trek will be slightly long, though not one without magnificent views of the Kashmir region on full display. The trail takes a slight ascent of the Nichnai Pass and then forms a slight descent to the Vishansar Lake. You’ll cross the Nichnai Pass from where you’ll enjoy panoramic views filled with snow clad mountains. Camps arranged beside the lake will be your destination for the day.

  • Day 4 -

    You’ll spend the day getting acclimatised to the high mountain weather for your journey ahead. A relaxed day, take time to unwind and chill around the mountains. Or stroll around to find incomparable sights of the mountain reflections in the lakes. Partake in a photography workshop; camp here for another night. 

  • Day 5 -

    Build your energy for the day’s trek with a wholesome breakfast, after which you will begin your trek. Head in the direction of Gadsar Pass, where you will find a pinnacle point after 3-4 hours of trek from where you can enjoy astounding views of Vishansar and Kishansar Lakes. Pass by several open meadows brimming with pretty red and white iris flowers, which are an indication of proximity to Gadsar Pass. The snow clad cliff top of Gadsar Pass will be your den for the night.

  • Day 6 -

    Begin your day after a nice breakfast at the campsite and follow a path by the river side; crossing the icy cold river waters is the only way to move ahead. Trails through meadows engulfed by mountains that will take you through a gradual yet difficult climb leading to the first of the Satsar Lakes, which is basically a collection of interconnected seven lakes. Though not all are filled with water, depending on the season you will find the lakes in full splendour. Enjoy amazing views of the lakes against a lush green backdrop and camp here for the night.

  • Day 7 -

    Today, as you will be trekking the longest distance of this journey, make sure to have a filling breakfast before setting off! Cross the last of the Satsar Lakes and follow a rocky terrain filled with boulders as you make a descent towards Gangabal. Feast your eyes on twin lakes, Gangabal – the biggest of the Satsar Lakes. Stand alongside Nundkol and take in the freshness and natural beauty of these surroundings.

  • Day 8 -

    After a heart-filled and soul enriching experience of the great Kashmir Valley, you will finally be at the last leg of your trek. Follow the routine of exercise and breakfast before trekking alongside a stream and a host of pine trees. From Gangabal you will trek to Naranag, the pickup point at the end of the trek. Board the vehicle and head back home with a wonderful trekking episode behind you.
