View the Gurez Valley trek
Gurez Valley trekkers who started their trek on July 27th experienced heavy rainfall during the initial days of the trek. So they took a buffer day at the Dison campsite.
“Due to heavy rainfall, the trail became slushy and slippery. We’re not receiving such heavy rainfall on the Tarsar Marsar and Kashmir Great Lakes treks,” shares Debadrita Ghosh, Experience Coordinator for all three treks.
Despite the short bout of heavy rain, the Gurez Valley trek is running on schedule. According to the latest update, the weather has improved. And trekkers are now on their way to the highest point of the trek.
“After taking a buffer day at Dison, the team moved to Khaari campsite. Today they will be climbing to the highest point of the trek, Patalwansar Lake II (12,795 ft), and then camping at Patalwansar Lake I. The weather is clear now. It’s a good day to trek,” says Slope Manager Nitesh Kumar.
Our teams in Jammu and Kashmir are regularly sharing updates from the trek. We’ll keep posting them right here.
