I went to Sonmarg with one of my friends to cover a luxury camping advertisement campaign and had the best night of my life. Into the rawness and serene beauty of the mountains, glaciers and lush green meadows with a spectacular view of the mountains and city lights at night. Camping in Sonmarg was free for us as the group i was working for provided us with everything but if somebody wants to get the luxury camping package it would cost them around 30 - 40k per night as the whole crew with everything goes up there with horses and sets up everything. It is worth spending money as you are into the mountains away from the city and your neighbours are the nomads living in the small temporary huts.
