Overview

Kashmir is a place known as paradise by itself. The first sight of enormous snow-clad mountain peaks standing across your way, the hovering clouds, and the complete
ambiance make you feel even more proud of being at a place that doesn’t seem to be less than a heavenly body.
Every lake on the trek has a different story behind its name after Hindu Gods. Kashmir Great Lakes Trek allows you to feast your eyes with a magical view of ice
melting from the glaciers and feeding the lakes with sheets of ice floating on the lakes.

Some of the breathtaking lakes on the Kashmir Great Lakes trek are Gadsar Lake, Vishansar-Kishansar Lake, Satsar Lake, and Gangabal Lake. This trek is a pilgrimage

to every nature lover who wants to come face to face with untouched raw natural beauty along with a great dosage of adventure.
