"Life is too short and there are so much to see, learn and explore"
Last year in August with passion of trekking and to challenge myself to next level of hiking I registered for Kashmir Great lakes Trek. Kashmir Great Lakes is a moderate to difficult trek. Covering an average of 10 km each day is no easy feat. Its one of the beautiful treks in India, that you get to see more than seven beautiful alpine lakes and of-course there is no comparison of heavenly and beautiful Kashmir. Seven days long trek with altitude starting Sonamarg (7,800 ft) and highest Gadsar Pass (13,800 ft) was quite challenging, fun and adventurous. First time experience of just a majestic mountains, serene lakes, glaciers and of-course down to earth people ..what a heavenly feeling!! Everything you see brings smile on your face and gives you a sense of hmm I don’t know may be the feeling of being a Human. The chilled crystal clear water, greenery, having food and staying at that altitude brings so much change in you, it broadens your mind and your day to day struggle in life looks so tiny in front of the people surviving here with less or no comfort. Salut and respect to the Indian Army who are there for us, protecting us in tough and bad weather conditions. We were lucky to celebrated the independence day with humble Army Men. Being born in Army family and that particular time celebrating Independence day in Kashmir was a pride moment.
