Overview

Sonamarg (literally, the meadow of gold) is a tranquil place set in a valley amongst glaciers and placid lakes. The flower-laden meadows, panoramic view of the lofty snow-covered Himalayan peaks and a number of trekking and hiking trails have made Sonamarg a popular tourist destination.

Sonamarg is the last stop of Kashmir that leads to the driveway from Srinagar to Leh. Trekking and hiking are quite popular here due to the presence of large number of mountains.

Sonamarg is also popular for its walkways out of which the major attraction is the 4 km route to Thajiwas, which is a small valley at the foot of the Sonamarg Glacier, covered with pine, fir and birch trees.
