Overview

Kashmir Great Lakes Trek

The Most Beautiful Trek In India

Kashmir Great Lakes is one of the most stunning treks in India. No question. It validates Kashmir’s legendary popularity as heaven on earth.

This is due to the fact the trek is set on a canvas that’s large than life. It is located 75 km northeast of Srinagar. Every day is a 360° panorama of wild, rugged mountains, rolling meadows, and turquoise alpine lakes. And you get greater than six of these lakes and 5 very exclusive valleys to explore!

The vary of panorama makes it a moderate-difficult trek spanning over six days. This ability it has lengthy trekking days with steep ascents and descents with no convenient exit points. So, it’s now not intended for a novice who hasn’t been uncovered to high-altitude treks.
