Overview

Kashmir, with its beauty, has been mesmerizing travelers for ages. The backpackers who are just getting on the road to start their traveling journey magnify their list by adding the Kashmir backpacking trip to it. Beyond any doubt, the majestic view of Kashmir induces wanderers, however, the everlasting experience is what adds more to it.

This paradise can be adored in abundant ways and has been done so in the form of couplets and songs but a trip to Kashmir is the only way to explore this paradise and make it memorable. The Kashmir backpacking trip is an astonishing experience, not only does it allows you to see the beauty of nature but also helps you experience true peace and tranquility. This trip’s meant to bestow you with this everlasting experience itself.

Discover the wonder of Kashmir with our all-inclusive Kashmir tour starting from Srinagar. This Kashmir backpacking trip itinerary starts at a rendezvous point in Srinagar, where you’ll meet the trip captain. You will be given a brief introduction before commencing the perfect journey to the exquisite Kashmir. After checking in to your designated houseboat, you’ll be able to experience the Shikara ride in the pristine Dal Lake. It is a serene location that gives a whole new floating experience. This must be a reason for it to be called a “Jewel in Kashmir’s crown”.

After enjoying the magnificent sunset dawn on you, you’ll be experiencing a lovely overnight stay on the boats. That’s when we’ll head to our Kashmir backpacking trip’s second destination Gulmarg, following the Drung waterfall.

Gulmarg, the most popular hill station in Kashmir has snow-covered meadows and skiing slopes that would catch your eye. This most astonishing place in the Baramulla district of Jammu and Kashmir is often recognized as the "heartland of winter sports in India". If you’re into snow activities or want to experience one, then this small valley will be the ideal place for you to spend your time in. You can indulge in Gulmarg Gondola Ride and can enjoy the aerial views of the valley. After that, we’ll head towards the world’s highest green golf course to experience the best of our time.

On the next day, you will experience the thrill of visiting one of the most captivating places, Pahalgam, which is next to our Kashmir trip itinerary. Pahalgam is Kashmir’s beautiful hill station known for its sightseeing and astonishing meadows. It is considered a mystical or extremely spiritual place because of the presence of the holy Amarnath Yatra pilgrimage. 

 After taking some rest at our checked-in hotels at Pahalgam, we’ll visit two prominent valleys named Aru Valley and Betaab Valley to spend some time with ourselves. As we move towards Chandanwadi, you will be able to espy many snow activities like skiing and snowboarding. With this, we’ll end our sightseeing to get back to our hotels for rest.

The real gem of this Kashmir tour will come into the picture when we reach our next destination, Yousmarg Valley. It is the hidden gem that embraces the beauty of Kashmir and gives tourists a whole new breathtaking experience with its green pastures and water bodies. After enjoying the peaceful time at Yousmarg Valley, we will get back to our hotels.

The next morning will be the departure day of our Kashmir tour, where everyone will be going back as scheduled. You will not only be taking back your backpacks but also numerous memories that you would love to live with again.
