  1. Day 1 Drive from Srinagar to Sarbal Village; Trek to Durinar Meadow

    We drive from Srinagar to Sarbal Village and commence the three-hour trek to Durinar Meadow(3500m). It is encompassed by transcending mountains and streaming ice sheets on opposite sides. Shepherds could be seen encompassing the meadow with their sheep and goats. Overnight stay in camps.

  2. Day 2 Trek to Durinar Lake

    We begin an early morning trek that will take us to Durinar Lake, (4171m) an azure blue lake. We pitch our tents at an area that fills in as summit camp for two awesome high pinnacles, Mount Innominate and Crystal Peak and a trail to Kolahoi Pass (4150m). Overnight stay in camps.

  3. Day 3 Trek to Barafsar Lake and back

    We trek further up to the Nilnag Lake (4270m) and afterward push further 350 meters parallel to Innominate Glacier until we achieve the most elevated Alpine Lake of Kashmir. To the right we will discover Mount Valehead and to the left, the Kazim ridge. We will savor some village snacks there and slip back to Durinar Camp to camp for a night.

  4. Day 4 Descend back to Sarbal Village and Drive back to Srinagar

    On this day, you will trace back the same route to Sarbal village and drive back to Srinagar. You are expected to reach Srinagar by 4 pm. You can book your night flights to fly back home. This marks the end of the trek.
