With a charming view of the mountains in all their glory, Sonamarg Valley is a beautiful hill station famed for its snow ranges, meandering streams and alpine lakes and forests. Through history, the place has held travellers in awe of its serenity, and the fact that it is in close proximity to the Ancient Silk Route that connected China to the Nile valley in Egypt, adds to its mystique. Travellers promise to themselves that they will be back as soon as possible for, they do not ever seem to tire of all that this heaven on earth, has to offer. Do not say you haven’t been warned, a night’s stay is never going to be enough, for you would want to explore more of its valleys, glaciers, forest brooks, high passes and majestic road drives, at a pace that is more languid. This golden meadow is a gateway to the Amarnath mountain cave (sacred to the Hindus), and the monasteries of Ladakh. In Sonamarg you can also opt for other leisure activities such as angling and small river-rafting runs. For the adventurous, it is a great place to hike, trek and paraglide.
