All about the "Great Lakes of Kashmir Trek"

There is a reason Kashmir is proudly called the ‘Paradise of India’. On this trip, we embark our journey towards 5 Great Lakes, nature lovers, and a trekkers lifetime experience. As much as I write, every word of praise seems less to describe the beauty of this trek. 5 stunning lakes and milky white icebergs floating on lakes. Every day we are going to wake up in the meadows of Kashmir surrounded by pristine lakes, velvet grasslands, thatched hamlets and our life will cross the threshold of heaven, we may also catch some trout fishes while we are there.  Every place we go will leave us awestruck, its beauty will enchant us. Someone has said it right, ‘If there is a heaven on earth, it’s here, it’s here, it’s here’. Book Great Lakes of Kashmir Trek today.
