Sheeshnag is a high altitude alpine lake in Kashmir. Its situated on the way to Amarnath cave at an elevation of 3590m.
It's 23 kms away from Pahalgam.
We started our trek early morning form Chandanwari which is 11kms from Pahalgam. From there the lake is 12kms away. It's a one day trek but we decided to stay there for two nights.
You can either hire a horse to carry the load or you can do it on your own if you are on a budget.
The only tricky part of the trek is Pissu Top from there it's quite easy. We wen there in off season so snow was still there and there is a bridge at Zajipal which was wiped away by an avalanche, so we had to climb a mountain and reach the lake from the other side. It was very difficult. A friend of mine almost slipped to death but he got lucky. But I have to say it was treat to the eyes. It was hard but so beautiful. There is a quote saying "The best view comes after the hardest climb" I felt that. We were carrying our super heavy backpacks too so it took us 9hrs to complete the trek.
We camped at the lake and it was amazing.
The sunset, it was mouth watering.
