’Heaven on earth’ is the phrase that will come to your mind while undertaking the Kashmir Great Lakes trek. As you walk along the trails, you get to witness almost the entire range of ecological zones of the Himalayas. When you start the hike, you are amidst thick temperate forests of pine. You then gain altitude and enter jungles of morinda spruces, pindrow fir and deodar trees, which disappear as you reach altitudes of over 11000 feet. Here you are greeted by expansive lush green meadows. It's easy to trek through the meadows due to their comparatively flatter terrain. From these grasslands, you will be able to see crystal-clear lakes and snow-covered mountain peaks in the distance. The Trek has many more exciting factors including the massive Nagna Parbat in Pakistan.
