Tarsar marsar Trek (Detailed Itinerary)

The Kashmir Tarsar Marsar trek begins in the afternoon and the very first destination is Aru base camp which is located at a distance of 12km away from Pahalgam. Ary is considered a beautiful tourist stop and the base for two main treks including Tarsar Marsar and Kolahoi Glacier trek. All the trekkers need to meet at Srinagar and then we will head to Aru which is a short drive of almost 3-4 hours. You might face network connectivity at Aru so it is advised to wrap all your communication at Srinagar itself. At Aru, all the trekkers will be greeted at a river-side camping zone. Here you can indulge in several activities like trout fishing in the Lidder, horseback riding, and even heliskiing during the winters. Night stay for all the trekkers is arranged in camps and also hot food will be served.

From here, Aru valley is visible down below. You need to follow the track alongside the River Lidder firstly which is connected to the village uphill directly.The trail will further take you into a cluster of Fir trees and then to a huge clearing, Dalla near the Gujjar huts. From Dalla, the track is quite pleasant as you need to trek on the plain ground within a dense pine forest. As you trek further, cross a wooden bridge and finish the second section of the Fir forest line, the trail will take you to Lidderwat. Here the campsite for the trekkers is located where you can relax and get ready for the next day. Also, you will be served with hot & healthy dinner.

Lidder on day 03 which also takes you to a pine forest.

After this, the ascent is steeper and takes you to a forest of silver birch called Bhoj trees. This will further take you to Shekwas which is a beautiful meadow. Among all the camping sites, the best camping site is Shekwas.

Today, we have to descend a distance of 5km which will take almost 5 hours to complete. Day 04 will start from the Shekwas meadow and further take you through a snake-like path present in the grassland. From here the path will take you to an elevation right on the top of the stream. After trekking for two hours, you will come across the marvelous sights of different ridges from where you can get the first glimpse of the eye-catchy Trasar lake. This lake is an almond shape. By using the fastened rocks and boulders, cross the stream and reach the pretty grassland of Tarsar which is going to be the campsite for day 04. During the night, this lake turns into an attractive shade of turquoise blue and turns out to be a precious stone in the lap of snow-covered mountains.

Keep following the trail and reach the beautiful grassy land of Sundersar Lake where you can pitch your tents and stay for the night. In this way, you will be able to enjoy the calm and gorgeous Kashmir.

On day 06, we will pass along the shores of Sundersar Lake to get through the two passes from where you will reach your destination i.e., Marsar Lake. Through the boulder zone, take a shorter trail. While ascending, you must be careful as the snow over the boulders makes the trail a bit tough. From here in 30 minutes, you will reach the outstanding grassland with gentle trails. Gradually reach the flat grounds and cross the small streams that come along the trail. From here, climbing the ridge begins and you get the chance to view Marsar Lake.

After reaching Homwas, set up your tents, enjoy delicious food and retire for the night to relax your body.
