Sonamarg, Srinagar

3.9
#3 of 8 in Nature in Srinagar
Head up to Sonamarg, a small mountain town set in a scenic position. Use this as a starting point for a range of hikes and adventures into the surrounding tall peaks, impressive glaciers, and attractive stream winding through the valley. The seasonal settlement of this hill station lets you arrange for a guide to show you the area, or rent a pony for the trip up to the glacier. Historically used as a stop-off on the ancient Silk Road, the village remains uninhabited and inaccessible during the winter when snowfall gets heavier. See Sonamarg and all Srinagar has to offer by arranging your trip with our Srinagar holiday builder website .
