All about the "Best Tarsar Marsar Lake Trek Itinerary: Kashmir Tourism"

There is a reason Kashmir is proudly called the ‘Paradise of India’. On this trip, we embark our journey towards Twin lakes, which flow in opposite directions separated by a mountain. As much as I write, every word of praise seems less to describe the beauty of this trek. One 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.  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’.

Tarsar lake is a wonder in itself, it changes color depending on the time of the day, season and different angles where one stands and looks at it.
