When I visited Sonamarg, I didn’t have much options to explore due to extreme temperature. But here is a brief piece of information, so that you don’t miss on anything fabulous, unlike me. Sonamarg is one of the four getaways included in Kashmir trip. It is the last stoppage in Kashmir valley if you are going towards Leh, Ladakh. Although, Sonamarg is famous for the most beautiful glacier where several hindi movies have been shot. You see it and believe it. Here are the best things to do in Sonamarg-
Visit Thajiwas Glacier– Have a friendly snowball fight with local kids or just enjoy the ice-clad mountains and get lost in it. Keep your camera handy as you can’t even afford to miss a sight of it. It would be a tough trek for you but you won’t regret the hard work as here is the only place where you would get to see frozen water falls.
Get clicked at Gadsar Lake– It is one of those lakes which remains frozen throughout the year. This idyllic sight would be unforgettable for you as this water body is surrounded by snow covered mountains along with alpines and other wild greens. You can also enjoy panoramic view of Baltan and Satsar lake which makes it more beautiful than anything.
Believe it or not, you can spend almost four-five hours at Sonamarg without even looking at your watch. The place will keep you engaged if you love nature.
