Overview

Of all the trekking destinations in India, you can excuse us if we're a bit partial towards Kashmir, where trekking as an experience is on another tangent of beauty altogether. Amongst countless other stunning trekking trails, Kashmir is also home to the iconic Tarsar Marsar trek. The trek leads to three incredible alpine lakes, namely Tarsar, Marsar, and Sundarsar. The trail coils through iconic meadows of Kashmir, stunning high altitude pastures and forests and pastures. The campsites on this trek sit right beside the surreal beauty of these lakes, and a sprawling sky studded with a million stars watch over you. If you're lucky, you may even catch a glimpse of an arm of the Milky Way in all its stellar glory. Besides the beautiful terrains, the beautiful mountain valleys and rustic villages of Kashmir leave you awestruck. To know about Tarsar Marsar Weather, you can mail us.

Brief Itinerary

Detailed Itinerary

Aru sits about 12 km away from Pahalgam, and a shared cab from Srinagar will land you there, as the place is quite famous. There are two different routes leading up to Aru- one through Anantnag, and the other through Bijbehra.

Meals : Dinner Only
Accommodation : Homestay/ Tents
Time Taken : 3.5 hours drive
Altitude : 8,040 ft.
Distance : 105 km

The trek begins with a mild yet long climb from the village of Aru to Lidderwat, which is about 10 km away. The trail snakes along the cool Ladder river. A few minutes into the trek, and you can see the beautiful area of Aru behind you. Soon the trail enters beautiful forests of fir, and opens out to the Dalla clearing. Now the trek becomes gentler and evener. About 2 – 3 hours later, the trail curves into dense fir forests, and to the stunning meadows of Lidderwat. Camp overnight at the dreamy campsite of Lidderwat.

Meals : B, L, D
Accommodation : Tents
Time Taken : 3 hours
Altitude : 9,025 ft.
Distance : 8 km

An easy to moderate day. Continue the trail alongside the Lidder river, and dips down into the fantastic forests of pine. Move past the cluster of trees and watch incredible views unfold before you. The expansive grasslands of Lidderwat blend in with the snowy mountains, along with misty valleys.  The trail enters a tapering valley graced by a snaking blue river and soon leads to the lovely campsite of Shekwas.

Meals : B, L, D
Accommodation : Tents
Time Taken : 3 hours
Altitude : 11,160 ft.

Once you leave Shekwas, the trail along the path leading up to Tarsar, via a ridge overlooking a stream. The narrow ridges pop up to stunning views of the valley. About two hours later, the trail offers a slight sneak peek into the wonderful Tarsar lake. Crossing a stream through rocky terrains and boulders land you at the grasslands of Tarsar. Camp here or the night.

The Tarsar Pass commands numerous beautiful views, and the valley spans out beautifully. Trekking through the pass saves you a few hours, which is saying something. The trail that descends from the pass to the bottom of the valley opens up to a verdant valley. Another stretch of meadows, grasslands, streams, and boulders brings you to the magical campsite of Sundarsar Lake, where you camp overnight.

This is where you’ll thank yourself for carrying a trekking pole or ice axe. Soon the path opens up to grassy patches, and past a few beautiful brooks. Soon, the climb leads to stunning vistas of Marsar, enveloped in cloudy haloes. The lake, looking quite similar to Tarsar lake, is lined by beautiful mountains on the side.

You should inform your leader on the arrival of your allergy, and let them know where you keep your adrenaline pen.

Vaccinations: You should contact your doctor or travel clinic to check whether you require any specific vaccinations or other preventive measures. You should be up to date with routine courses and boosters as recommended e.g. diphtheria-tetanus-polio and measles-mumps-rubella, along with hepatitis A and typhoid.
