Hi Ashish, Great Lakes Trek is an absolutely stunning trek filled with green meadows, glacial rivers and snowclad mountains. The trek begins at Shitkadi, which is a few kilometres ahead of Sonamarg and takes about eight days. Since you only have five days, I recommend starting in Naranag which can be reached by private taxi from Srinagar. You can also ask travel agents in Srinagar to arrange a 5-day Great Lakes Trek for you. You can find guides in Naranag to take you on the trek but it is better to go through Srinagar travel agents.

Hi Ashish, you can do short treks (2-4 days) from Naranag. Ganderbal Lake is a day trek from Naranag. You can do parts of the Great Lakes Trek from Naranag which is why I suggested it.
I thought of doing great lakes trek but i dont have time of 8 days. u suggested to go through naranga it means from opposite of side of kashmir great lake trek ..right. Do you know any? or can suggest me
If you don't have 8 days then you may opt for Tarsar Marsar which is an equally stunning trek
Kashmir Great Lakes is a popular trek and its season time. A shorter trek will be Sanasar.
