Brief Description

Kashmir has its own unique experience of trekking in its region. Tarsar Marsar is a less explored trek usually done in summers in the region of Kashmir, so-called "Switzerland of India". The trek comprises of exploring of two high altitude alpine lakes, viz, Tarsar and Marsar lakes situated at an altitude of 12500 ft. Other than this, the trail is brimmed with green meadows, pristine rivers and enchanting mountains and valleys in Dachigam National Park.

Itinerary

localtion
Day 1

Arrival at Aru (8,038 ft) - 103 km Drive

Upon arrival at the Srinagar airport, you will board a vehicle that takes you on a 2 hour drive to Aru, winding roads that take you through one of Kashmir’s famed tourist destinations of Pahalgam. Aru, our base camp for the Tarsar - Marsar trek, is another 12 kms ahead of Pahalgam. Stay overnight in tents at the open grassy campsite at Aru.


localtion
Day 2

Aru to Lidderwat (9.022 ft) - 8 km

We head out into the tree cover, visible at a distance from the campsite, leaving behind the green pen pastures. The trek starts with a gradual ascend for 2 to 3 hours through a beautiful pine forest trail. A short level walk along the Lidder river thereafter brings you to a tea stall. Another gradual ascend for 1 hour and you can see the Lidder forest rest house in sight. Cross a bridge and get to the Lidder campsite on the other side of the river.


localtion
Day 3

Lidderwat to Sekhwas (11,154 ft) - 6 km

The day’s trek starts with a moderate to steep ascent for 1 hour, followed by a level walk for another hour before we break for lunch, beside a gentle stream. We leave the tree line behind here, and ascend gradually for 1 more hour to reach the Shekwas campsite. From here one can get a good view of the surrounding mountains and the path heading up to the Tarsar lake. A short 1 hour hike from the Sekhwas campsite will take you to the small yet charming Jadar Lake. Return to Sekhwas and rest for the night.


localtion
Day 4

Sekhwas to Tarsar Lake (12,467 ft) - 4 km

A trek to the first of the lakes, Tarsar, is on the agenda today. We trek uphill from the Shekwas campsite, keeping the stream flowing down to our right. The views of the mountains get grander and more snow-clad peaks become visible all around us as we approach the Tarsar Lake. 2 hours of trekking and the beautiful lake reveals itself amidst imposing mountain ridges on 3 sides. A wonderful opportunity to camp next to the emerald blue waters of Tarsar Lake. Spend the day exploring the trails around the Tarsar Lake only to witness the grandeur of the lake surrounded by majestic mountains. The beauty of the lake is that it changes colors depending on the time of the day, season and the angle from which one looks at the lake. Retire for the night.


localtion
Day 5

Tarsar to Sundersar (12,960 ft) via Sonamous Pass (12,960 ft) - 6 km

Today, we have to cross the ridge which surrounds the Tarsar lake. An hour's climb to the top of the ridge and then we descend into the valley on the other side. The view of the valley leading to Zachmargi on the other side of the ridge is simply breathtaking. Upon descending into the valley, we walk along the stream which drains from Sundarsar. Set up camp at Sundarsar. Relax and admire the serene Sundersar Lake. Retire for the night.


localtion
Day 6

Visit Marsar Lake (12, 946 ft) and go to Homwas (11,500 ft) via Marsar ridge (13,201 ft) - 9 km

Walking around Sundersar, we trek up and over a saddle on a ridge located on the far side of the lake. Marsar is an hour's trek away from here. The trail takes you to a vantage point which gives you unparalleled views of the Marsar Lake, which is almost always engulfed under clouds and mist. The weather this height turns bad fast and is unpredictable. So, after soaking in the beauty of the lake and its surroundings, we turn back towards Zachmargi from Sundersar. From here instead of taking the Tarsar pass and reach Sekhwas, we trek for 2 to 3 hours to reach the campsite of Homwas. Retire for the night.


localtion
Day 7

Homwas to Aru (8038 ft) - 13 km. Drive 103 km to Srinagar

Today we depart the campsite of Homwas and take the same route we took at the beginning of the trek to reach Aru via Lidderwat. A two hours descent from Homwas will take you to Lidderwat and this time you can witness all the epic views that you had missed earlier on this trail. Passing through the pine forests of Lidderwat, we rest at Lidderwat for some time before resuming our trek to Aru which will take about 4 more hours to cover. Expect to reach Aru by 1600 hours and our vehicles will be waiting at Aru to drive you to Srinagar. Expect to reach Srinagar by 1900 hours.
