Our next destination, Sonamarg was as sensational as the rest of Kashmir! From it's lakes & rivers to the valleys , the stunning Zoji La pass, and jewel of Sonamarg - Thajiwas Glacier , we fell short of words that justify the glorious sights and superlative beauty that you get to witness in Sonmarg !
Spent some time watching the on going film shoot of Bhajrangi Bhaijan before we left for Srinagar. We reached Dal lake to stay in houseboats with no expectations after being blown away by the charm of Kashmir.
It was a unique experience reaching our houseboat on shikara,watching the sun shine on those snow-capped mountains, far in the background.
Those lackadaisical shikara rides in the evenings soothe you ,as you recline a nd watch the locals go about their daily routine or watch the ever enthusiastic sellers hawk other tourists and sweet talk them into buying just about anything
