Day : 1

Acclimatisation day is on the first day of the Kashmir Great Lakes Trek. Camp next to the Sindh River in Sonamarg for the night. Because the campsite gives you a view of the jungle and landscape that surrounds you, the sight is worth taking in. On the second day of the trek, one ascends via tabletop toward Nichnai. The tabletop is a small meadow with a view of the Sonamarg region and the Thajwas mountain range from one side. From the table, take in the enticing summits of this range. The campsite at Nichnai is in a flower-filled valley with a water stream next to it.


Day : 2


The next day, you go over the Nichnai pass, which is high up and gives you a great view of the valleys below. You will trek to the next campsite in the Vishansar valley after crossing the Nichnai pass. The Vishansar and Kishansar lakes are what make this valley famous. Trout fish abound in the lakes. In the lakes and the river that flows from them, you will observe fish dancing.


Day : 3


The third day of this trek is the hardest of all the days. This trek’s highest point is the Gadsar pass, which you will ascend. The pass is approximately 4200 meters above sea level. At the pass, take in the expansive view of the two valleys, Gadsar and Vishansar, as well as the twin lakes. After a sharp ascent to the Gadsar pass, a long walk through the lush Gadsar valley meadows follows. The valley’s wildflowers, which come in a variety of colors and sizes, are what make it so famous. It is truly a heaven-sent walk to stroll among these flowers.


Day : 4

 Despite its small size and stunning beauty, this lake This lake is clear and turquoise in color away from the noise and litter. Your campsite will be right next to the river that flows through the area right after the lake.


Day : 5

The next day of the trek is the easiest. The majority of the day is spent on a meadow walk in the Satsar valley. You will be able to see some of the best lakes in this valley, which has seven lakes. 


Day : 6


Both the ascent and the descent are exhausting. Just before the pass, the trail crosses a rocky and boulder-covered section.  This is the best place to enjoy the view during your lunch break. This day’s campsite is one of the most beautiful in the Gangabal valley. In close proximity are the Nundkol and Gangabal lakes, which are twin lakes. The valley as a whole is breathtaking, with its wavy meadows and Mount Harmukh’s towering peak. The lakes of Nundkol and Harmukh are both close to your campsite.


The wavy meadows of Trunkhol make for a pleasant stroll on the final day of the trek. The trail descends steeply into the jungle after passing through the meadow. This is the trek’s most difficult steep descent, which is quite taxing on your knees and ankles. This jungle walk descent requires careful manoeuvring. The trek and the day end in the village of Naranag.
