About The Winter Trek In Kashmir.

From mid-October, Kashmir transforms into a winter wonderland and gives rise to a variety of breathtaking winter hiking routes. Based on beauty, safety, terrain, and gradient, we’ve selected the top four winter treks in Kashmir. The treks are well known for being stunning winter treks of the Valley and are also very well-liked. All of the hikes will take you to breathtaking valleys, snow-capped mountains, lush forest peaks, Himalayan bird life, fantastic camping grounds, meadows covered in snow, and the majestic mountain ranges.

1. Marchoi Trek.

Duration: 4 days.
Trek Gradient: Moderate.


Without a doubt, the Marchoi Trek is one of the Indian Himalayas’ most stunning winter hikes. This amazing journey begins at Naranag, 45 kilometres to the northeast of Srinagar City. The hamlet is well known for being the end point of the Kashmir Great Lakes Trek and for producing a winter paradise. The Machoi Mountain, whose pinnacles rise above 5000 m, serves as the inspiration for the name of the Marchoi Trek. This winter hike’s highest point is at the apex of a meadow locally known as Shadimarg (3200 m). The walk is a winding wonderland, thanks to the stunning vista of Mt. Harmukh’s (5142 m) northern face and surrounding valleys.

2. Lidderwat Aru, WInter Trek.

Duration: 4 days.
Trek Gradient: Moderate.

Lidderwat camp

 A winter trek in Kashmir is the best way to witness the miracles,  since everything in the region of heaven appears magnificent during the winter. Through the summer, Mountain Expeditions, the Tarsar Marsar Lakes Trek, and other well-known treks keep this trail busy. The initial section of the walk passes through the Aru Village’s gently rolling slopes covered in snow before entering Lidder Valley. The adventure is made exciting by the snow-covered pine forests, Aru Village, half frozen Lidder River, and the blue sky. There is practically little elevation gain across the 9 km overall course of the hike. 

3. KothPathri Winter Trek, Aru.

Duration: 3 days.
Trek Gradient: Moderate.

The trailhead for the most well-liked and fashionable treks in the Kashmir Valley is Aru Village, which also gives rise to a variety of winter and snow treks. The Tarsar Marsar Trek and the tallest mountain peak in Kashmir Valley, Mt. Kolahoi (5400 m), are mentioned in the Lonely Planet guidebook for the Indian Himalayas, which also includes the surrounding environment. You will be led through a fairly gentle ascent towards the foothills of Mt. Katernag during the hike. The meadow flanked by cedar and pine trees serves as the trek’s top. It is slightly busier than other winter treks because it is Kashmir’s finest choice for a moderate winter hike.

4. Dumail, Naranag Trek.

Duration: 2 days.
Trek Gradient: Easy Winter Trek.
Dumail, Marchoi Trek

 Speaking of a different winter journey that starts at Naranag, the Kashmir Great Lakes Trek’s endpoint. One of the simplest winter and snow treks in the Kashmir valley, with views of woods, a partially frozen river, snow bridges, icicles, and frozen gullies. The trail’s beginning is where an archaeological site and the Shiva Temple are located. Families, couples, and those seeking an easy winter walk would benefit most from this fantastic winter hike. The trek’s flat and easy section comes to a close at Domail, where the confluence of the two snow-fed rivers is located.
