Sonamarg literally means meadow of gold, which gives one a legitimate idea of just how gorgeous this hill station not far from Srinagar really is. The river Sindh, the beautiful trees, the dese and mysterious forests, the fog the snow and the seasons make Sonamarg a really special place to visit.
After winter is over, they open up the roads for transport, you will be able to see the hill station in all its glory. Tourists certainly swear by it. However, being just a pristine beauty it has been governed by very strict environmental laws that should be respected.
You can hire horses to take a ride around the scenic areas but Sonamarg is best explored by good old walking. The stunning place is certainly worth the effort.
