Sonmarg – Valley of Golden Sun
Situated at an altitude of 2730 m, Sonmarg (‘the meadow of gold’) has, as its backdrop, snowy mountains against a cerulean sky. The Sindh River that meanders through the valley abounds with trout and mahaseer. Ponies can be hired for the trip up to Thajiwas glacier, which is a major local attraction during the summer months.
Sonmarg is a quite valley, carved and circled by placid lakes and awesome glaciers. Surrounded by mountains up to 5,300 meters, the Valley is divided by a spur of the Thajiwas range. The spur dividing the valley is covered by fir, pine, silver birch and sycamore trees. The valley is also known as the base of a major trek that crisscrosses through passes along several mountain lakes –Vishansar, Kishansar, Gadsar, Satsar and Gangabal. Sonmarg is also the take off station for the drive to Ladakh across the Zojila, a major pass in the Great Himalayan Range, through which the Srinagar-Leh Road passes.
