The terrain is even more beautiful closer to Rohtang, with deluging snow peaks and an enchanting lake. The place is an ideal escape for all your summer woes. If you go in summers, you can trek to the monasteries, and also to Chandratal and Suraj Tal. You can enjoy some quiet time at the banks of Chandra and have lots of fun observing the amazing Rohtang and its lake.”

The landscape of the place is magnificent, surrounded by meadows, huge valley leading up to Zojila pass and snow covered peaks. The beauty of the place is awesome. A must visit for every traveler to Kashmir. We gone there on the month of november, 2014. It was nice ride from the pahalgam. Once we get off the bus at Sonamarg, first thing that we are able see is Tonnes and tonnes of raw ice. Soon we took RS. 50 a pair gum boot hired and thrown ourselves in the ice, we played many games, made santa claus, and thrown on one another. We trekked the small icy mountain and reach at the top. From there beauty is so great. It's a must visit place for ice lovers specially go after November then you will have a wonderful look of the mountains and lots of snow.”
