10 treks of Jammu and Kashmir

Jammu Kashmir is one of the most pristine and beautiful states of India. The surreal beauty of the green meadows, fruit orchards, and sparkling rivers and lakes inspires travellers to compare it to heaven. While there are plenty of ways to explore this state, the top treks in Kashmir will take you to some of the lesser-known destinations so you can get a complete experience of the state. The lush landscape of Kashmir is directly contrasted by the stark region of Ladakh, which is part of the state of Jammu Kashmir. This high altitude desert kingdom is famed for its high passes, brackish water lakes, deep blue skies and a landscape that is larger than life. The dramatic geography makes it a hub of exhilarating activities like white water rafting, mountaineering, and camping. Read our blog about the Top Adventures in Kashmir.

High altitude trekking in Jammu Kashmir

Out of the many challenges of trekking in this region, one of the tasks is acclimatizing to the altitude. Most treks take place at a high altitude, and require you to rest for a day or two so that your body can adjust. Here are the top treks that you can do in Jammu and Kashmir.

1. Chadar trek

The unique thrill of trekking on the frozen Zanskar River in Ladakh makes this the best-known top trek in Kashmir. You’ll trek on the icy sheet (Chadar) that is formed on the river for all days of your trek. The route takes you between the soaring walls of the river valley, and while it is not technically challenging, the altitude and extreme cold make this a difficult trek. You’ll see bubbles that are frozen in ice, stand and gaze at towering ice waterfalls, and drink hot butter tea in ancient Tibb cave, where the walls are darkened by thousands of campfires.

3. Stok Kangri trek

Starting from close to the scenic town of Leh, this trek takes you to a height of 20,182 feet! The early section of the trek takes you through beautiful mountain scenery, and you'll camp at gorgeous campsites. From base camp the climb becomes steep and the air thins, posing a thrilling challenge for trekkers. While it involves some rock-climbing, you don’t need to have any technical mountaineering skills to get to this altitude, which makes it one of the top treks in Kashmir.

4. Markha Valley trek

The Markha Valley trek is one of the top treks in Jammu Kashmir, because it takes you deep into the valleys around Leh, giving you a glimpse into the daily life of the Ladakhi people. The tiny Markha village, consisting of only about 25-30 homes, has sprung up on the banks of the Markha river. The small oasis of greenery is a dramatic contrast to the rest of the arid terrain of Ladakh. You’ll explore remote gorges, vast undulating grazing grounds, and ancient monasteries. The campsites here feel like you’re in the middle of nowhere, with no civilization for miles around, and only an endless starry sky above.

5. Tarsar Marsar trek

The twin lakes of Tarsar and Marsar are the perfect place for a nature lover or photographer to escape to. Surrounded by mountains, nestled in the midst of meadows of sweet grass, these sparkling lakes reflect the clear blue skies above. It’s a stunning sight, and the cherry on top is a chance to camp right beside the lakes.
