On the way to Nichnai
Heading towards Krishnasar
I have hardly seen such a landscape
Walking over the green lush mountains
I wish, if I could be the Shepherd and stayed there forever. Blue sky, white clouds, strange shaped mountains partially covered with snow, green fields and undisturbed herd of sheep.

Whom to choose ?
After doing a lot of investigations, we had chosen to trek with Budget Trek Kashmir , which is a well experienced local trek organizer of Kashmir. Believe me, they know the route better than any other well named organizer. Due to their vast knowledge of the place, they will show you some beautiful hidden lakes which are unknown to rest of the organizers. While we were on the trek , we were unexpectedly served with yummy chicken curry, freshly caught trout fish, unlimited eggs, freshly plugged vegetables and so on. Which I can bet that no other organizers will dare to serve. I want to express my heartfelt gratitude to each and every person of the organizer, especially to Riyaz Ji, Mansoor Ji, Mama, Wasir Ji & the rest of the team members who were so much assiduous to make our trek a memorable one.
