Thajiwas Glacier, Sonamarg

#1 of 10 in Things to do in Sonamarg
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. Thajiwas Glacier is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Sonamarg Edition.

  • Must visit place for mesmerising views of snow capped mountains along with snowfall. Throughout the year it remains covered under the snow. The place is 3-4 kms away from sonamarg on shrinagar - leh highway. Private vehicles are not allowed for going up to the glacier. Most convenient way reach from sonamarg is by local taxis or Pony's. Taxi drivers and Pony owners might overcharge you so taking a walk is also a good option.
