Kashmir Great Lakes Trek

03 Aug - 11 AUG

Gar Firdaus bar roo-e zameen ast, Hameen ast-o hameen ast-o hameen ast. When Amir Khusrau wrote the above lines which translate to ‘’If there is paradise on Earth, it is here, it is here, it is here’’ for Kashmir, he voiced every single person who has set foot on this land. No traveller would ever say that they did not fall in love with Kashmir after witnessing its beauty.


The beautiful alpine high-altitude lakes of Vishansar, Krishansar, Gadsar, and Satsar are some of the hidden gems in the Kashmiri Himalayan landscape that are traversed on the Kashmir Lakes Circuit hike. The Kashmir Lakes Circuit trip is ideal if you want to experience gorgeous lakes with changing colours of water, meandering streams, and breathtaking Himalayan views from high hills.

A different sort of Sukoon will be witnessed every day during this trek. If you haven’t been on Kashmir Great Lakes trek, you’re missing out on something dreamy.
