  • 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.
  • You will have a trek of a lifetime at Thajwas. Just pray it's not raining
  • The local asks about 2000 for the Tata sumo but the actual price is 7-800 rs. So bargain first don't give money untill ur back .
