The trek to Tarsar Marsar lakes in Kashmir is one of the most spectacular alpine lakes treks in India. Being a less known trekking destination than Kashmir Great Lakes, the route to Tarsar Marsar lakes have retained its raw wilderness and natural charm. Trekking in Kashmir entails walking along the vast open meadows for long hours with the views of snow-capped Himalayan views, and crossing clear-water streams along the way. This trek takes you to the heart of Kashmir, from the verdant valley of Aru to rolling mountains of Shekwas and eventually leading you the magnificent Tarsar and Marsar lakes.
The trek to Tarsar Marsar lakes is a moderately difficult trek but suitable for beginners.
The Tarsar and Marsar lakes are the royal blue coloured alpine lakes located at the elevation of 12,400 ft and 13,200 feet respectively. Both lakes are snow-fed and subtly changes colour throughout the day according to the angle of sunlight. The twin lakes are notable for its peculiar almond-shaped water body, separated by a mountain. Trekking in summer to the Tarsar Marsar lakes is an opportune period to spot exotic birds and animals like the golden eagle, golden marmot, snow leopard, and musk deer, among many others. This trek offers you the unique opportunity of camping right beside the Tarsar Lake. You will also stay in tents at verdant campsites in Aru Valley, Lidderwat Valley and Shekwas.
