Sonamarg (Kashmir) – Snapshot from my Travels #Part 2

Sonamarg which means ‘meadow of gold’ is a hill station situated at an altitude of 2800m in Ganderbal district in the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir, and from here Zoji La Pass is around 24 Km ahead which is one of the highest passes for road transport. It’s a beautiful place where you find yourself amidst snow clad mountains, enchanting natural beauty, greenery and glaciers, the beauty is just ethereal. The moment I reached Sonamarg, I was swept away by the view, though I had no time to stroll around the place but still tried to capture few snapshots of this beautiful place.

For all those adventure loving people who wish to enjoy camping at a hill station, it’s one of the ideal destinations. Situated at a distance of 80 KM from Srinagar, on the Srinagar-Ladakh road, the drive to this place is through the Sindh Valley which presents spectacular facet of countryside in Kashmir.
