An amazing experience!!
Sep 2021 • Solo
We did Kashmir Great Lakes trek and then visited the glacier. This place is beautiful with wide valleys and mountains are picturesque.

Our local tourist guide was very kind and skilled in trekking. Its a nice experience to have someone guiding you and taking pics while you get to experience this beautiful place. I took the liberty to share his number. You can contact Manzoor at +91 70068 12544 or +91 95964 44175.

It is close from Srinagar and definitely a must visit place. Bilal - 9596476963 can arrange for a cab. On reaching Sonamarg, you can walk down or hire a pony. There is place for snacks - Maggi, omelette and tea on the way. Manzoor advised to visit place in March- April when it snows. Zo-jila pass is opened by then so you can get snow bike riding experience.

Overall, it was a amazing experience.

What a view
Jun 2019 • Family
It was worth the money I gave to the pony riders although you must know how to bargain your way with them. The glacier's snow is dirty but that's not the main attraction, the view around the glacier is amazing . The way upto the top is filled with such views. Definitely a must visit.

Beautiful Snow peak/glacier
May 2019 • Family
On reaching Sonamarg car parking area, one should hire horse/ponny to ride over to the glacier. It would take approximately 45 minutes to reach the top. Horse/ponny cost varies from person to person. Hence a lot of bargaining is required. Top portion is completely covered by snow. Snow activities like skiing, sledging is going on there. There is a small hotel for tea/coffee.

Good place to see snow

Its a wonderful place to see snow. Sledge or Ski scooter guys say that they'll take you to Thajwas Glacier but they only take you to the huts and tell you that this is Thajwas glacier.
Bargain hard with the pony wallah/sledge or ski scooter guys.
With sledge come another guys known as Helper who will ask for 600 Rs. and can come down to 300 only if u want.

Very nice place to be

A pony ride to Thajiwas glacier is better than opting for a vehicle. The vehicle would anyways not take you till the end and you need to walk/take a pony from the vehicle drop point. This is the place where Bajrangi Bhaijaan movie (last scenes) were shot. Provides excellent views throughout the way.
