I had never seen any pictures of Sonamarg before going there. Yes I did hear a lot about the beautiful vistas and the giant mountains surrounding the valley. Maybe that is what made it so much more beautiful for me. The green high altitude pastures of Sonemarg are nothing short of heaven. They provide a podium, a dias to look at the enormous Thajiwas Glacier ahead. For an average traveler like me, it’s the views like these that make every moment worth my while.
I tried to capture the enormity of the mountain by framing 2 horsemen in the picture.
