Kashmir Great Lakes is one of the most beautiful tours in India. There is no question. It confirms the mythical nature of Kashmir as heaven on earth.


This is because the trip is put on a bigger canvas than life. It is located 75 km northeast of Srinagar. Every day a 360 ° panorama of wild, rugged mountains, meadows, and blue lakes. And you find more than seven of these lakes and five very different valleys to explore!


The scope of the landscape makes it an extremely difficult six-day journey. This means it has long days of steep climbs and descents with no easy exits. Therefore, it is not intended for a beginner who has never been seen on a high journey.


Having said that, the challenges are worth it. Each day goes well with a postcard, with a new alpine pool you can look forward to. What makes these pools even more beautiful is the snow that eats these lakes. You can see them sliding down the desert into the lakes. Sometimes you will see snow-white icebergs floating in the blue ink area.


And then there are the Kashmir meadows. These meadows come in all shapes and sizes, sometimes several times a day.


On the first day, maple and pinecones grow like an oasis in these regions. the second day, they climbed into a cave and went down into a spacious valley where horses were galloping and sheep were grazing. On the third day, just below Gadsar Road, wildflowers grow wild in the desert. the fourth day, the grassy plain of Satsar looks almost perfectly prepared – there is a sparkling stream flowing through it.


After this tour, the rest of the trip sounds like a movie on a small screen. Kashmir Great Lakes, however, is an IMAX 3D experience – this is the beauty of the journey. If you have not already done so, put it in your bucket list.

What I love about travel

  1. A beautiful mountain range on a trip

Many hikes in the Himalayas have beautiful scenery. But Kashmir Great Lakes is at its peak. They have a greater presence than living near you. I would not exaggerate too much if I say that a trip to Kashmir is like watching the IMAX screen while the rest is on a regular TV screen. Kashmir – you hear it everywhere.


  1. Variety of valleys and suburbs

A trip to Kashmir Great Lakes has 7 days of travel. And luckily you also walk on 7 different valleys. In addition, each of these valleys, broadcasts each day of the trip. All districts offer tough competition in the district before and after the district.
