Kashmir, in the middle of the Himalayan Range, is the dream of every traveler. Its high mountains, deep valleys, numerous lakes, snow clad mountain peaks, thick forests and sparkling rivers attract trekkers from all over the world. It is an exclusive world-famous destination that provides the opportunity to visitors to view some magnificent species of flora and fauna. The trail itself is so refreshing that despite trekking exertion, it takes all the mental pressure of the hectic life and life-style away.
This trekking destination incorporates eight magnificent lakes and standing at their shores is the most precious memory for everyone who dares to reach it. We will lead you to turquoise lakes via high altitude passes through breathtaking scenery of the Kashmir Himalayas. The magnificent meadow of Tushah Madaan is the 3200m base of all trekking expeditions in the area in the Budgam district of Jammu and Kashmir..
