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

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 and 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. But the advisory has been relaxed.

Pick-Up Time Changed for Kashmir Treks

We have preponed the pick up time for Kashmir treks. Now, the pickup time for all three Kashmir treks — Kashmir Great Lakes, Tarsar Marsar and Nafran Valley — is at 8 am.

This means that trekkers will have to reach Srinagar a day earlier. So if you’re planning any of the Kashmir treks, plan your travel accordingly.

(In case you have already booked your travel, your Experience Coordinator will get back to you with a plan of action so as to not hamper your travel plan. Keep an eye on your email and Whatsapp group)

Documented Trek

Serolsar Lake Trek

Serolsar Lake is in Tirthan Valley of Himachal Pradesh. Serolsar Lake trek is a paradise for someone who loves forest trails. The entire trail is through the dense pine and deodar forests. Even the lake, situated at 10,170 ft is guarded by thick, tall pine trees on all sides.

On this trek, you also trek to a high-point that offers a 360 degree view. From here you get commanding views of the Dhauladhar and Pir Panjal ranges.

Apart from the scenic beauty, the Serolsar lake has religious significance. Locals believe that a goddess who protects the entire region, is submerged in the lake. So every Saturday, locals from the surrounding villages trek do the parikrama.

How to Reach

Serolsar Lake is in Tirthan Valley of Himachal Pradesh, located 75 km away from Kullu.

A Transformation Story from Dayara Bugyal Trek

On the summit, when we were given a postcard to write a note I could only remember my father. I didn’t expect it, but tears started rolling down my eyes.

If he were alive, I’m sure he would have been so proud of me for doing something like this.

I had not got a chance to reflect on how far I have come in my journey after surviving cancer. Trekking to Dayara Bugyal and having multiple reflections with the other survivors and our Trek Leader Aditya (@avid_acrophile) gave me the chance to realize how grateful I am for the life I'm living after cancer.

After returning from the trek, I told myself, "There will always be one more summit ahead. I’ll always be able to climb it. I only have to focus on taking it one step at a time.”
