Kashmir great lakes trek is one of the great travel destination to make trek on your vacation time. The great lakes are alluring and enjoying making your life with purity.
Introduction :Kashmir great lakes trek
The Great Lakes of Kashmir trip is among India’s finest picturesque. Without a doubt. It validates Kashmir’s renowned status as “heaven on earth.”
This is due to the expedition being placed in a significantly bigger frame. It is 75 kilometers northeast of Srinagar. A 360° picture of untamed, craggy peaks, grassy pastures, and azure mountain lakes greets you nearly every day. And there are far more than seven of all these lakes to discover, as well as five separate valleys!
Difficulty level of the Kashmir great Lakes trek
It’s a six-day moderate-difficult hike because of the variety of terrain. This entails full hours of hiking, severe climbs and downhills, and no convenient departure locations. As a result, it’s not suitable for someone that has never done a high-altitude hike before.
Despite saying as much, the difficulties are well worth the time and effort. Every day is picture-perfect, with a fresh alpine lake to enjoy. The snowy spots that nourish those lakes make them much more beautiful. You can watch them slipping through into lakes from the jagged hills.
View of the trek
On occasion, milky white ice sheets can be seen drifting on the lake’s huge turquoise expanse during the Kashmir great lakes trek time.
Then there are the Kashmiri pastures. These fields occur in all shapes and dimensions, and there are often several in a single day.
These fields sprout clusters of maple and pine like that of a paradise on the initial day. They plummet down a hill to a broad valley wherein horses roam and sheep feed on the second day. Blossoms flower profusely on the third day, immediately underneath the Gadsar pass, in these fields. The verdant plains of Satsar seem almost groomed on the fourth day, with such a glittering river floating through all of it.
Every subsequent walk feels like a film on a little monitor after this one. The walk to the Great Lakes of Kashmir, on the other hand, is an IMAX 3D encounter due to its majesty. Add this journey on your list of places to visit if you haven’t already!
