Thajiwas Glacier offers a pleasant and refreshing trek in the cold, fresh air, with the skyscraping mountains surrounding you. If you’re not into hiking, you can rent a pony and go for a ride in the intact nature, or jump on a sledge and let the locals show you the grand and scenic landscape. Some of the famous Bollywood movies were shot in the area, so it’s a popular site in the country. When you need to take a break, there’s a quaint little food court where you can grab a snack and warm up.

  • Beautiful Glacier in Sonamarg. At the bottom of this Glacier, people have base camps for trekking. In Summer, the beauty of this place is magnificent. In Winter, it is completely covered with snow. You can reach it in Summers on horse too
  • Excellent place in sonamarg to play around with snow. Kids will love the sledge ride. Neat and fresh snow to play with. Good alternative to zero point .
  • Good place to feel the best things of nature. You may hire a horse to reach here which cost around rs 500. If one wants to save money he should come early in the morning.
  • A Heaven filled up with touts and thieves. I had much sympathy before, but lost it as little minority Honest Locals doesn't rise up against these looting. My experience is worst as I faced very few Humans. Predators all around, My humble suggestion is never visit any part of Kashmir as they never see you as a Guest.
  • Most amazing place at sonamarg .We really had a good time there.a must place to be at
