Sonmarg tour: Beauty of Kashmir will make your jaws drop
The state of Jammu & Kashmir has been fascinating tourists from every part of the world for the captivating sightseeing, stunning mountains and snowy atmosphere. Sonmarg, which is about 81 kilometers away from the capital city of Srinagar, is a pleasant hill station that is filled with lakes, rivers, snowy peaks and grasslands. One of the most enrapturing charms of a Sonmarg tour is its dense foliage of verdant forests filled with trees like pine, fir and hilly flowers. ‘Sonmarg’ literally means ‘road or Meadow of gold’ and it is easy to see why this eye-pleasing spot has been recognized as one of the most enamoring places in the world.
When to visit Sonmarg: Though this delightful hilly paradise can be visited round the year, the months between May-September are the best for a pleasant climate. And if you can brave the cold and are looking for good amount of snowfall, then the winter season between November-February is the best time to head to the place.
Things to do in Sonmarg: Sonmarg, though a rapturous place for sightseeing, has also got an element of piousness attached to it. Those who head for the annual Amarnath yatra choose Sonmarg as the base camp and enjoy the dual delights of religious voyage as well as sightseeing.
When you go to Sonmarg, you will be bowled over by the charms of the alpine trees & hilly forests & jungles that can be really heart-rending and quaint. You will remember your Sonmarg tour and the tour to Kashmir for its cluster of sparkling, dewy lakes including the fabulous Krishnasagar Lake and the Vishansar Lake. Apart from the breezy panoramic view they provide, they also allow you to enjoy the delights of fishing and other activities. The grasslands of Baltal are also worth exploring while the blood red waters in Nilagrad must be seen to be believed. Visiting the nearby Amarnath Cave must also be included as an essential part of your tour to Kashmir.
Packages for Gulmarg: Gulmarg that literally translates into ‘Meadow of Flowers’ is a flowery hill station beautified with lakes, gardens and waterfalls. Royal gardens from the Mughal eras, the alpine forests, the beguiling lakes (that can be explored on boats & traditional shikaras) and the majestic slopes & cliffs will leave you spellbound under the packages for Gulmarg. The Alpine Ridge, that is a meadowland situated at great heights, is another crowd puller and you must head to the spot especially if you are nature lover. Packages for Gulmarg will also leave you in a jaw-dropping state with the mouth-watering cuisines- both local and global. And the hotels & resorts are marvelous, too!
