On the first day, trekkers will spend the day in Srinagar. Srinagar, the capital of Jammu & Kashmir, is situated in Kashmir valley.The trek would commence from Sonamarg, which is a three hour drive from Srinagar. So, to reach Sonamarg by night fall, the trekkers should start from Srinagar in the evening.
The second day is the most energetic day for the trekkers, since it will be the first day of trekking. The trek would start 3 to 4 kms from Sonamarg on Srinagar road. We would come across an isolated clean dhaba from where necessary items can be purchased for the journey.
The third day of the trek is bit longer than the previous day and hence, it's best to start a little early, say around 8 A.M to give a good head start. The sight of the green meadows and the fresh scent of early morning would give us an added energy to trek. The first point we cross today is the Nichnai pass or the Vishansar berry. It will take an hour to cross the river and another hour walk on the banks of it.
Rest Day at Vishansar.
First part of the day we do the climbing to reach the Kishansar peak, 500ft above Vishansar lake camp site. From here we would follow our trail to the lake and climb further on the other side of the Vishansar Lake.
Day 6 will commence with a walk from the army camp towards the stream. The best way to head up the mountains is to cross the river. There is one more way to cross the river, through the over bridge one km from the camp site.
Satsar to Gangabal Twin lakes (9 kms, 7 hours) is the toughest among all days. Mentally and physically you will be challenged. The only way to keep going is the zeal to complete the wonderful trek. We start the day by reaching the biggest of the Satsar Lakes.
Today is the final day of our trekking expedition. Yes, physically we will be tired and exhausted, but the thought of reaching our final destination will give us an extra strength and willpower to move on. We would start walking from the Gangabal camp site towards the tree line following the stream.We now drive back to Srinagar and settle down in guest house for the night.
