Starting from the beautiful and quiet village of Aru right till Sumbal, it is spectacularly beautiful. The Kolahoi Glacier is Kashmir’s biggest glacier and the main water source of the Jhelum. Kolahoi is Kashmir’s only perennial source of water.
It is named after the Kolahoi peak (Goddess of Light / Gwash Brari) that is called so by the Gujjars because the sun appears right behind it every morning who frequent the area for grazing. The Kolahoi Glacier is a hanging glacier and is five kilometers long. Apart from the Kolahoi Glacier the High Altitude Glacial lakes of Tarsar, Marsar & Sundarsar should satisfy ones longing for a beautiful Kashmir trek.
Long quiet walks through Kashmir meadows, spectacular views of the Kolahoi peak, the beautiful calm and mystical lakes and a pass crossing make this an exciting must do trek in the Kashmir Valley.
