Tarsar Marsar Trek
The Tarsar Marsar trek is one of the prettiest treks in the Himalayas. It involves the mesmerizing beauty of three alpine lakes together in a single trek including the Tarsar Lake, the Marsar Lake and the Sundarsar Lake. The trail is set right in the heart of Kashmir starting at Srinagar. Kashmir is known for its beautiful green meadows stretching across a huge area, its thick alpine forests and the glades altogether. The beauty of this trek is that the camp sites are right along the glades around the lake. The scenic views are so pretty that you’ll long to stay there forever.
The line of snow clad Himalayan mountains semi circling the lake on one side and green pasture lands locking the lake on the other are all reflected in the aquamarine blue waters of the lake resting in between. The Marsar Lake is always shrouded under a blanket of clouds until you approach closer. It is noted that the view will leave you awestruck with the sun rising right above the lake. The lake is visible only until the clouds gallop over it and makes it disappear within seconds. The trek starts from the quaint village of Aru right in the heart of Kashmir. The trek is elevated at a height of 12,500 ft above the mean sea level. The trail is 46 km long and is covered within a span of 7 days. The terrain is not too rough but requires a certain amount of physical fitness and stamina to finish off the trek. The Tarsar Marsar trek is bound to leave you speechless portraying the most beautiful elements of nature is a single picture.
