Discover the untouched beauty of Kashmir through the captivating Nafran Valley trek. While the alpine lakes of Kashmir are renowned, Nafran Valley has much more to offer.

Nourished by the Kolahoi Glacier year-round, Nafran Valley transforms into a vibrant paradise from July to September. The valley contains brilliant red, blue, purple, violet, white, and yellow floral plants in addition to beautiful green grass. The meadows of Nafran Valley surpass the Golden Meadow of Kashmir, Sonamarg, and the Meadows of Flower in Gulmarg.

Snow on Nafran Valley Trek

As the snow melts in early July, it reveals the silky carpets of Kashmir beneath. You can quickly reach Kashmir’s turquoise-blue lake by trekking through the Nafran Valley, where you can fully immerse yourself in this divine creation.

Camping amidst these soothing meadows, larger than the meadows of Lidderwat in Tarsar Marsar and Satsar in the Kashmir Great Lakes, is an unforgettable experience. Local Kashmiris will delight you with their specially prepared delicacies like Kashmiri Haak (a local green leafy vegetable) and Kashmiri Pickle, showcasing authentic flavors. Moreover, the fascinating view of the Kolahoi Glacier, which is similar to the Gaumukhi Glacier, adds to the charm of this alpine lake in Kashmir.

Harbhagwan Lake and Harnag Lake are the two alpine lakes that are visible during this seven-day trek in Kashmir. These crystal-clear lakes shimmer under the sun’s rays and transform into a mirror reflecting the galaxy and billions of stars at night, making Harnag Lake a haven for astrophotography enthusiasts.

The meadows of Nafran Valley are home to temporary settlements of shepherd communities who reside there from June to October in mud houses before descending to lower altitudes for the winter.

The Nafran Valley trek, an easy trek in Kashmir, showcases gushing streams, pristine pine forests, and picturesque grassy patches. If you seek seclusion in the scenic valleys of Kashmir, make sure to include the Nafran Valley Trek in your travel plans.
