KASHMIR + GOLDEN TRIANGLE TRIP : SONAMARG, J&K

3:37 AM


SONAMARG, J&K

We went to Sonamarg on the 3rd day, but the picture below is on the 2th, shikara on Dal Lake.
  • Flights in India are weird. Baru touch down, belum berhenti lagi, sudah di benarkan guna phone dalam kapal terbang!
  • I flew with SpiceJet, so free seat hanya lah seat di tengah-tengah. You can pay a bit more for window seat, akan nampak permandangan gunung Himalaya, cantik sangat!
Kalau you hendak jimat ruang luggage, boleh beli pakaian winter di Srinagar. I sudah tolong surveykan harga.

Seluar thermal     -  250 rupees / RM16
Topi bulu-bulu     - 50 to 100 rupees /  RM4 - RM7
Gloves                 - 50 to 200 rupees
Winter coat          - 500 rupees / RM35  







3rd December 2017
  • In winter, pagi-pagi bandar belum hidup lagi. Keluar carik breakfast, kedai semua tutup. End up, breakfast dengan maggi sahaja dalam bilik hotel.
  • Betolak daripada hotel pukul 9.30am. Ada sesetangah blog inform keluar awal pagi pukul 4-5am to Sonamarg from Srinagar. I kurang pasti kenapa you keluar awal sangat. Even our hotel manager tak bagi keluar awal. 
  • Kami tidak mengambil apa-apa ground pakej, kami hanya sewa kereta + driver sahaja from our hotel.
  • On our way to Sonamarg, askar merata-rata! 
  • At Sonamarg, our destination was to Thajiwas Glacier.

  • Picture above is from the car park. Guide akan turunkan you di sini, then ada option untuk berjalan / horseback ride to the Glacier.
  • If you choose horseback ride, they will take you half way sahaja, in winter. If other season, kurang pasti sampai mana they will take you.
  • It will only take 30 mins sahaja to the glacier, naik kuda.
  • The highlight of this place, is the beautiful scenery. 


Horseback ride to above.






Don't forget to try Kashmiri Tea. not my type of tea, but a must-try!



We took the horseback + sledge package. Not worth it at all. Cukup lah sekadar horseback ride.
If you take the sledge, can only ride it once. Bukan nya sewa, dan main berkali-kali.





Thats all for Sonamarg! Jangan lupa, road to Sonamarg will be closed during heavy snow.  (Jan-Feb)

xoxo!
