Detailed itinerary

Day 1: Srinagar - Aru - Lidderwat

The hike begins at Aru village. We will start our tour in Srinagar and drive around 115 kilometers to Aru. When you arrive at the appropriate pick-up location, one of our staff will meet you and transport you to Aru. We will drive from Srinagar to Pahalgam, which is 100 kilometers away, and Aru hamlet, which is 12 kilometers away from Pahalgam.

The trek begins in Aru and takes you through an 13-kilometer, gentle ascent towards Lidderwat, which becomes our camping site for the night. Lidderwat is a beautiful meadow with two gushing rivers, one flowing from Satlanj, a confluence of seven glacial streams, and the other from Tarsar, both converging at the base of this beautiful camping spot. Lidderwat is also a heaven for stargazing, as on a clear night you can divulge into the vastness of our galaxy like never before.

Day 2: Lidderwat - Aru

You start by getting up early in the morning, and you will follow the same track towards Aru Valley that you followed when you first started the trek. You will reach Aru from Lidderwat in 3 hours. You could decide to go up to Pahalgam for the night or book a cottage at Aru.

As an experienced trekker and founder of InterExperia, a trekking travel agency in Kashmir, I highly recommend trekking in this region. Kashmir offers a diverse range of trekking routes that cater to all levels of experience and fitness.Some of the popular trekking routes in Kashmir include the Great Lakes Trek, Tarsar Marsar Trek, and Kashmir Alpine Lakes Trek. These treks offer breathtaking views of snow-capped mountains, alpine meadows, and pristine lakes.It’s important to note that Kashmir is a high-altitude region, and proper acclimatization is necessary to avoid altitude sickness. We recommend spending a few days in Srinagar or other lower altitude areas before starting the trek.Additionally, it’s essential to be well-equipped for the trek, including proper clothing, footwear, and trekking gear. It’s also crucial to have a knowledgeable guide who is familiar with the terrain and can provide necessary support during the trek.

Overall, trekking in Kashmir is an incredible experience that allows you to connect with nature and explore the beauty of this region. At InterExperia, we strive to provide our clients with a safe and memorable trekking experience in Kashmir.
