Thajiwas Glacier, Sonamarg Reviews

  • Absolutely loved the place. Trek of around 5.5 km one side was worth it. No need of hiring carts from the base sonamarg. Trek up to the glacier and enjoy the snow. Sleigh rides available. Bargain for the rates. Tea and Maggi was great in that rainy weather.

  • One of the best place to enjoy in sonamarg.. You can find snow glacier here through out the year.. You can also enjoy trekking in the area. In winter you can enjoy skiing here..

  • One of the best places in Kashmir to visit for half day visit. Pony ride is bit uncomfortable and risky. Hikers should avoid pony ride and go hiking. The sledding guys are very aggressive and needs to be polite.

  • Just fantastic!!! I saw the snow for the first time at Thajiwas, Sonmarg and boy was it awesome. It feels like you're suddenly apparated into a beautiful magical land from the movies. Some say these are like the Swiss Alps. Visit this place before you die. Motor vehicles aren't till the base. You can park your vehicle at the main road and hire a pony(or a proper horse if you're bulky) but bargain like you are bankrupt. Also the pony ride isn't that comfortable and a bit risky. I almost fell off. It's almost 6-7kms one way to the glacier, so it's not difficult to hike for people with decent fitness. Bring thermals or you'll have to rent jackets. Rent gumboots if you want to venture into snow. There are touts that incessantly pester you to take their sledge ride. I didn't feel it's worth the price but again bargain is the key. Overall Sonmarg is something that can inspire poets. Don't miss this place if you're in Srinagar.

  • PARADISE ON EARTH. Its in the caption. I took a horseride from Sonmarg to Thajjiwas Glacier and it was an amazing lifetime experience.Beautiful scenic valley with mountain peaks and a small stream make the scenery so good that I was astonished in wonder.The glacier was beautiful.But the weather changes here abruptly.Bring umbrella if you are going to visit.Weather is very cold here.Metal body phone, Camera doesn’t work here properly.But you don’t need this here.Just come here and feel the beauty of nature.I attached 16 photos.Watch those.
