Kashmir Great Lakes Trek

Kashmir
8 Days7 Nights

Event Overview

Kashmir with its unparalleled beauty, postcard perfect scenes and almost European vistas frankly needs no introduction. The Kashmir Lakes Circuit trek traverses some of the hidden jewels in the Kashmiri mountainscape – the pristine alpine high altitude lakes of Vishansar, Krishansar, Gadsar, Satsar. Nundkol and Gangbal. If you are looking for green meadows filled with colourful wild flowers, pristine colour changing water lakes, meandering streams and amazing Himalayan views from high passes, then the Kashmir Lakes Circuit trek is the most highly recommended trek.

Starting from the popular hill station Sonamarg, the trail follows ancient routes taken by the gujjars, the nomadic shepherds of Kashmir. Every day on the trail, trekkers are treated to breathtaking views of rugged snowcapped mountains, colourful grasslands, and trout filled crystal clear lakes. There are also high passes to be crossed, the highest being at 4191m and rocky terrains to be navigated frequently. It goes without saying that it is a physically and mentally challenging trek and would require the trekkers to be physically fit and to have a penchant for the Himalayan remoteness to enjoy this trek.
