After Breakfast, we drive out of Srinagar to commence our trek. Situated 2130m up at the confluence of the streams flowing from Sheshnag Lake and the Lidder River, Pahalgam was once a humble shepherd's village with breathtaking views. Now it is Kashmir's premier resort, deliciously cool even in the height of summer, and a wonderful day is spent exploring the natural pine forests and enjoying nature's splendour. We trek steadily along the river to the pretty log-hut village of Aru, 11 kms from Pahalgam. At Aru, the camp is already set up for you beside the Lidder River. We eat a delicious dinner round the fire and rest. O/N Tents.

After Breakfast, short trek takes us to the base of the Kolahoi Glacier at the head of the Lidder Valley, where our surroundings become noticeably more alpine and dry. The glacier, climbing from 3400m up to 4000m, descends from twin peaks at 5433m that tower majestically overhead, and is a truly magnificent sight. We head back to Lidder Watt for campfire meal and rest. O/N Tents.
After Breakfast, today is another momentous day, as we set off over the Simmus Pass at 2500m, offering superb views of the mountain landscape on all sides of us. We then descend steadily on an easy path into the Sindh Valley, watching as the scenery becomes increasingly green and lush once more. We settle into our camp set up in the near side of the Sindh Valley . O/N Tents.
After Breakfast, pleasant day's walking as we descend further into the beautiful Sindh Valley, enjoying the shady forests groves and gushing brooks that feed this lush landscape of flowers and trees.
