The Kashmir Great Lakes trek is one of the most popular in the Kashmir Himalaya, offering vantage points of some of the most beautiful mountain panoramas and jewel-like lakes. You pass numerous high-altitude lakes offering spectacular views of the surrounding peaks, and camp in alpine meadows of flowers. Gangabal Lake, popular for the best trout fishing in the region is a pure delight. From the beautiful hill station of Sonamarg, the trail follows ancient routes trodden for centuries by the Gujjars, the nomadic shepherds of Kashmir. The Kashmir Great Lakes offers one of the most overwhelmingly beautiful treks on a land of celestial charm and serenity.
