New Groups Open for Kashmir Great Lakes, Tarsar Marsar and Nafran Valley Treks


By Swathi Chatrapathy

We have great news! We have opened up more groups to our Kashmir treks this year.

Which means that throughout July and August, you will find Available Dates for all our Kashmir treks.

Tarsar Marsar -

Kashmir Great Lakes -

Nafran Valley -

Trekkers have been requesting us endlessly to open up more slots for these treks. These treks have been full for over two months.

We could not open up new groups because there was a strict limit imposed by the government on the number of groups an organisation could take as well as the number of trekkers in each group.

However, yesterday, the Office of the Director of Tourism took an important decision to open up Kashmir to more trekkers. This has brought a lot of relief to the locals who depend on trekking tourism, to the many trekkers who we were not able to accommodate as well as to us as an organisation.

So we have been able to open a few more groups to our Kashmir treks.

You’re one of the first trekkers receiving a notification about the new groups that have opened.

We hope you make full use of this news update and plan your trek soon.

The slots are not likely to remain open for more than 2-3 days. Plan soon!
