  • Lovely place. Completely covered with snow in November 2018. Trekked the place and had a snow bike ride. Enjoyed thoroughly.

  • This place made me believe that heaven is here. Beautiful landscape, I stayed in the than was sanctuary itself which is even great. One must visit this place in their lifetime.

  • Just wow. Trek was relatively easy. Very scenic place.

  • Trek if you can ...not so tough mountain you can also borrow a pony but must bargain with them..very nice sceneries best time is March to June ..snow is always there on mountain peaks but you can't touch it from July to November

  • 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.
