Arrive at Srinagar.
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 km ahead of Pahalgam. Stay overnight in tents at the open grassy campsite at Aru.
Aru to Lidderwat
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 insight. Cross a bridge and get to the Lidder campsite on the other side of the ladder river.
Lidderwat to Sekhwas
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 leading up to the Tarsar green lake.
Sekhwas to Tarsar Lake
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 to 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.
Tarsar to Sundersar
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. Camp at Sundarsar.
Sundersar to Sonamast
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. After relaxing at the lakes and soaking in the beauty of the surroundings, we turn back towards Zachmargi and then trek down for another 2 to 3 hours to the Sonemasti campsite. We are now headed towards the other end of the valley leaving behind the Kolahoi mountain massif.
Sonamasti to Sumbal
From Sonemasti, we will start our descent towards Sumbal, where our trek ends. The trek is entirely downhill, crisscrossing water streams along the way. We also pass a number of shepherd huts as we get near Sumbal. Be careful though – a number of shepherd dogs to be encountered along the way. It takes about 3 to 4 hours to reach the upper Sumbal settlement, where the trek ends. From here, board vehicles for a 1-hour road journey to Srinagar.
