The trail was closed to civilians until a couple of years and was later opened up as a boon to the trekking community who could see the real beauty of Kashmir through its valleys and mountains.  The High-Altitude Alpine Lakes On the Kashmir Great Lakes trek, you get to explore and camp 5 high-altitude lakes in various mesmerizing valleys. with emerald green waters, these untouched water bodies look straight out of  HD wallpaper. These lakes are surrounded and guarded by tall mountains and are extremely scenic. One of the less explored lakes in this category is the Gasar lake. Not only does it require a hard trek, but it is also less visited by tourists. Gadsar is fed by a gigantic glacier near it and the trail will remind you of the Valley of Flowers trek. The meadowed grasslands and the wildflowers that grow here will make you feel like you're in the middle of a movie set! You get a glimpse of all 5 lakes from Gadsar pass While the Gadsar lake is immensely beautiful, the Gadsar pass is incredibly magnificent in itself. The higher you climb, the better the view gets. Right from twin lakes - Vishansar & Kishansar, you can also get a glimpse of the three Gadsar lakes which would be located towards the right. If you have a good camera, a panoramic picture of this view will be worth millions! With lush green meadows sprawling out near the crystal blue waters and snow-clad mountains in the backdrop, this sight will make you fall in love with nature all over again. Another surprising element here is that the Gadsar pass will also show you a glimpse of many smaller lakes on the way. Don't forget to count the lakes you've come across here!  Breathtaking drive from Srinagar to Sonmarg/Sitkari The base camp for the Kashmir Great Lakes Trek is an enthralling hill station called Sitkari near Sonmarg. Post arrival in Srinagar, you will be driving down to Sonmarg and then to Sitkari. The drive to Sitkari will give you views of scattered forests, meandering streams, extremely treacherous roads, and incredibly majestic snow-clad mountains.  Visit Zoji La Pass & Zero Point On your day of arrival at Sitkari, to help you acclimatize to higher altitudes, you will be driven to Zero points near Kargil and will get to travel through the super famous high mountain pass - Zoji La pass for sightseeing. Trekking to the treeline from Gangbal Another promising aspect of this trek is the descent from Gangbal to tree line. This picture-perfect hike will take your breath away and leave you awed. While you would leave behind the view of Harmukh peak that is engulfed by the humongous glacier near the Nundkol lake. you will begin to realize that the beauty you see in Kashmir is something you would never find elsewhere.  Gangbal - The Ganges of Kashmir Here's an interesting fact: The name Gangbal was derived from the river Ganges. The lake is extremely sacred to Kashmiri pandits and is also considered to be a holy pilgrimage site. They take part in what is called a Gangbal-Harmukh yatra, the annual pilgrimage to the 14,500 feet-high Harmukh-Gangbal lake shrine.

Trek to Har Ki Dun
₹ 17,999
Har Ki Dun is easily one of the most sought after treks in the Garhwal region of the Indian Himalayas. When it comes to Himalayan treks, this one stands out for its picture-perfect campsites, it's sheer beauty and also because, at one point, it will remind you of a scene from Lord of the Rings.  Also known as the "Doorway to Heaven", this little valley is a trek away from the Sankri village and is located at an altitude of 3,566 m (11,600 ft) and remains carpeted with snow from October up until the end of March. The meadowed wonderland is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful treks in the Western Himalayas.   The Valley is home to villages that are more than 3000 years old that makes this a gateway to a cultural extravaganza. The trail takes you to a world that is untouched by modern technology and will definitely transport you back to simpler times.  The Story of Osla: When translated, Har Ki Dun means - Valley of God Har (Shiva). The story dates back to the time of Mahabharatha when a clan that was extremely loyal to Duryodhana resided in Osla. Their loyalty for the eldest of the Kauravas was so strong that they built a temple to worship him and the clan is devoted to preaching to Duryodhana to date. The village works with its own set of rules and regulations and forms it's own Government. The attire of the village differs from the rest of Uttarakhand and depicts the culture and traditions of the clan. There are roughly about 250 houses in the village and they have close to 600 inhabitants. They also have a king who visits them once every month. The villages grow potato and wheat which is one of the major sources of food and income here.  Stay at a Homestay in Osla: Not only do you get a glimpse of the culture of Osla, but you also get to live their culture for 2 days when you stay here. The village is an eye-opener to how people can live with sheer happiness with such limited resources setting an example of how staying happy is something that you can be in control of.  Camping with a View: If there's one thing that you must not miss on a Himalayan trek, it's to camp on the trail. Right from camping amidst the valleys with streams flowing beside them to waking up to grand views of the revered peak - Swargarohini I, II & III, Bandarpoonch and Black Peak all in the same frame. It is also said that Har Ki Dun is the valley & pathway that the Pandavas took to reach Heaven through the Swargarohini peak. Trek via the Jaundhar Glacier Jaundhar is considered to be one of the largest sources of the Tons River. The majestic Jaundhar glacier lies in the trail to Har Ki Dun. Standing at a mighty altitude of 4,300 m (14,107 ft), the glacier is located close to the Swargarohini peak and is breathtakingly beautiful with impressive rock formations that are as huge as a mountain itself. The terrain here will be made of ridge-sand rubbles and rocky terrain.    COVID Pandemic Preparedness and Protocols: Screening of all nomads at the entry point for symptoms of COVID-19 such as temperature (using no-contact type thermometer/ thermal guns), cough, cold, etc.  Only asymptomatic tourists shall be allowed.  Those with temperature more than 37.5 °C (99 °F) and/or flu-like symptoms shall not be permitted to travel.  Nomads in the age below 10 and above 60 will not be permitted.  Before the commencement of Travel, all nomads to mandatory submit a self-declaration form.

Dronagiri, 3,658m (12,000ft) – is one of those little and ancient villages with a mere population of 70-80 people and just one satellite phone. Far away from the digital world and its advances, this village is very close to mother nature. Dronagiri is the only peak which has lent its name to a village in the vicinity or in India for a matter of fact. Dronagiri also happens to be the same mountain that Lord Hanuman lifted to save Lord Laxman in the Indian mythology, Ramayana. Interesting facts about the mountain, do not end here. A popular belief among the locals in Dronagiri is that Lord Hanuman, while taking the Sanjeevani mountain with him, accidentally broke the arm of the local deity there. This is the reason why Lord Hanuman is not worshipped in Dronagiri village.   Click here to read a check out a photoblog on our trek to Sanjeevani Parvat aka Dronagiri.    COVID-19 Information: After due considerations and after understanding the guidelines and precautions set by the respective State Governments and the Government of India, we have decided to resume our operations and reopen our treks, ensuring the full safety and security of our Nomads and our on-ground staff.

Brahmatal Trek
₹ 13,999
A trek that has captured the hearts of beginner trekkers & winter trekking enthusiasts is the supremely beautiful Brahmatal Trek in Uttarakhand. Set amidst the Trishul range in Uttarakhand, the Brahmatal trek is a winter wonderland with magnificent close-up views of giant mountains surrounding the trail. The breathtaking Brahmatal Lake! Nestled in the deep heart of Uttarakhand is the gorgeous and extremely picturesque Brahmatal lake that can only be accessed through the Brahmatal trek. While the lake isn’t huge, it sits in the midst of a snow-carpeted meadow open on all sides with just one lone tree keeping it company. The lake is frozen through most seasons and is crystal clear when not iced up. While the lake is not directly on the trail, one would need to hike a little to come across this beauty. This is also close to one of the campsites on the trek. The lake remains unfrozen in spring and all through autumn and is good months to see the icy blue waters of the lake. Brahmatal is a name that is derived from Lord Brahma. The mythology mentions that Lord Brahma used to meditate on the Brahmatal lake. The lake is situated at an altitude of 3,400 m above sea level. The Views from Brahmatal! One of the many reasons we love the Brahmatal trek is because of the views of the giant mountains you find along the trail. While treks like Kedarkantha, Gorson Bugyal, Pangarchulla etc. give you great views of the Garhwal mountains, nothing comes close to what you see on the Brahmatal trail. While the Brahmatal trek starts from the Rhododendron forests, once you finish this climb, it opens up to a gigantic view of the wall of Mt. Trishul Massif (7,120 m/23,359 ft) that resembles a trident. Trust us when we say, you will be awestruck at the first glimpse. The views will get even bigger as you climb further up and you will also get a chance to see Mt. Nanda Ghunti (6309 m/20,698 ft). As you reach Brahmatal Top, you’ll also get up close to Mt. Neelkanth (6596 m/21,640 ft), and Mt. Hathi Ghoda (6729 m/22,070 ft). These views will definitely leave you wondering how minuscule we are amidst these giants. The perfect winter trek! If you have an everlasting love for snow and winters, then this is one trek you must do. Considered to be one of the most popular winter treks in India, Brahmatal is a great trail for Nomads who are new to Himalayan trekking. This trek takes you through two Rhododendron and Oak forests, introduces you to two lakes – Brahmatal and Bekaltal Lakes shows off a gorgeous snow-carpeted meadow, and has campsites that look like a scene right out of Frozen! In peak winters the entire trail gets drenched in snow and you get to spend and camp for five days in a snowy wonderland. Great beginner trek with a Summit! The Brahmatal trek covers the highest altitude of 3,733 m (12,250 ft) which is Brahmatal top and an overall distance of 30 Km spread across five days. As the trek takes you through forests for most of the trail, the chances of getting Altitude Mountain Sickness is lesser here. The gradient of this trek is moderate which means that the climb is less steep as compared to Kedarkantha, however, the trek distance on each day will be longer. In the winters, you can expect to trek in knee-deep snow and experience snowfall every now and then. While you may require microspikes during the trek, there is no technical climb in this trek. While this is a beginner Himalayan trek, it is always recommended that you be physically fit when it comes to high-altitude treks. COVID-19 Information: After due considerations and after understanding the guidelines and precautions set by the respective State Governments and the Government of India, we have decided to resume our operations and reopen our treks, ensuring the full safety and security of our Nomads and our on-ground staff.
