Kashmir Great Lakes Trek

Duration : 7 Nights / 8 Days   |   Grade : Moderate   |   Max. Altitude : 13,750 ft


❄ Description

Kashmir Great Lakes is the prettiest trek in India. It is not on every trek that you get to see five beautiful alpine lakes; each lake competing with the other in beauty that is almost divine. What’s more, these lakes come one right after the other. So every day there is a new one to look forward to.

The trek to the Kashmir Great Lakes Trek offers a lifetime experience of vintage memories that are so wonderfully tiring. The thundering silence of the Kashmir lakes and its virgin beauty is spell bound. Apart from the lakes, even the barren milky snow clad mountains stand out in might and proud.
