Day wise Details and Description

Day 1 : Srinagar to Aru via Pahalgam

The car will be provided from Srinagar, and the 112 kilometre trip to Aru may be completed in 4 hours. The trip goes through Pahalgam, a popular location close to Srinagar. In Jammu and Kashmir's Anantnag area, there is a well-known tourist attraction called Aru. Views of lush pastures and the Katrinag Mountains in the distance may be had from there.

Day 2 : Aru to Lidderwat

Ascend steeply through fir forest and a few Gujjar communities as you begin your walk from Aru and go towards Lidderwat valley. Go past the expansive field of agricultural fences as you follow the Lidder River's path. The entire Aru village may be seen from a height from here.

Day 3 : Lidderwat to Satlunjan

After 20 minutes of hiking from Lidderwat, you'll come across 5–6 Gujjar huts. You can get to Trun Khalan by walking in a level area with some inclines. The path now becomes rough. Take pleasure in crossing streams and passing Gujjar houses.

Day 4 : Satlunjan to Sonasar Lake/Basmai Lake

Reach the boulder section after two hours of climbing up, and the expansive Basmai valley opens out. There are a few Bakarwal huts close to the river; head in that direction and make a gentle ascent to the boulder patch from the river's right bank.

Day 5 : Sonasar Lake to Handilsar Lake

You may reach the first lake by making a moderate ascent. After a 45-minute climb from Satlunjan, arrive there. Sunpatri is reached after a further half-hike hour's from Tsangsar Lake.

Day 6: Handilsar Lake to Rohil top and back to Satlunjan

In contrast to Basmai valley, the lovely Rohil valley is smaller. See the beautiful scenery from the summit, then go back and find Satlunjan.
