It is with a heavy heart we are calling off all upcoming batches to our Kashmir treks in 2016 – Kashmir Great Lakes and Tarsar Marsar. The situation in Kashmir has gone from bad to worse.

Earlier, we could travel to and from the base camp at night, but now the curfew has been extended to the night as well. Transport has been restricted. We don’t think it is safe for our trekkers to be in Kashmir anymore.

If you had registered for one of the Kashmir treks

We understand that you might have had a tough time getting leave from work. Don’t let your leaves be wasted. You can consider these four treks as alternatives. These treks will fall nicely within the dates you have taken your leaves. Also, all airlines are giving a full refund on your tickets so don’t worry about flight cancellation charges.
