Nature in Kashmir

Discover Jammu and Kashmir’s natural splendour that lies in shimmering lakes, snow-clad Pir Panjal peaks, and open meadows. With several places to choose from, there is more to the Valley than meets the eye. Kolahoi and Machoi glaciers stretch out near Sonamarg which is along the Srinagar–Leh Highway (NH1D). Despite being at an altitude of 4,700 metres and 4,800 m respectively, both Kolahoi and Machoi glaciers remain easily accessible from Sonamarg via short pony ride.

While Dal Lake is the most popular spot for idling around on a houseboat with your family or better half, Wular Lake – one of Asia’s largest freshwater lakes – provides ample opportunities for sports like water skiing. Upper Kashmir is dotted with the Great Lakes that lie along the popular trekking routes in the glorious Pir Panjals.
