Trek to the Great Lakes of Kashmir

The journey lasts eight days and begins in Sonmarg. Three hours from Srinagar, you will reach your base camp in Sonmarg. From there we will start our peaceful journey through thick forestland. There are many terrain options, including rocky roads and muddy platforms, lush green trails, flower carpets, and other unexpected metamorphoses. There will be many sluice crossing areas with icy cold water that will pierce your feet, far from the solid ground.

These seven lakes are: Gadsar Gadsar Satsar Yamsar Gangabal, Nundkol, Vishansar and Kishansar. The journey is moderately alpine with only the most delicate part being the climb to Gadsar Lake via Gadsar Pass. Gadsar Pass, at 700 feet, offers a breathtaking view that will be a lasting memory. The banks of the lakes will be where the mature camps are located, as the name of the journey suggests. After a long day of touring, you will be re-energized and satisfied by the night sky and heavenly water bodies. Your journey will end when you reach Narang, near the Gangabal Twin Lakes. You’ll then be driven back to Srinagar.

A Time to Visit:

July and August are the best months to visit Kashmir’s Great Lakes. These two months are when the temperature is highest and the sky is clearest, which allows pedestrians to make the most of their visit. The area is covered in thick snow robes from September to April. This makes it difficult to travel through the area, implying that camping is impossible. The average temperature is between 17 and 20 degrees Celsius during the day and 3 to 5 degrees at night. Even though the trip is possible in June and September it is not recommended for trampers. Trampers should be ready for temperatures below zero after the evening and possibly a day off.

Indian pedestrians advise that you bring warm clothing and be mentally prepared for the harshest conditions.

All weather conditions

The daytime temperature can range from 17 to 20 degrees Celsius. The temperature at night can drop to 3-5 degrees Celsius. A proper outfit with appropriate clothing and shoes that have good traction makes it easier to make the journey. The mountains can change dramatically in temperature, which can be quite shocking for the body. Warm clothing aids in adaption to cold temperatures.

India’s pedestrian experts strongly recommend that you avoid the August journey due to the rush.


At the top of Gadsar Pass, 700 feet above ocean level, is the highest point. With determination and perseverance, you can reach the highest altitude. However, it is dependent on weather conditions. This view will remain with you for the rest of your life.

The proper drug might be necessary to adapt to the gravity-defying elevation. It is vital to maintain constant hydration.

Safety conditions for the journey.
