Thajwas Glacier lies one hour walk ahead of Sonamarg. Two and a half hours drive from Srinagar takes us to Sonamarg, driving on Srinagar-Leh Highway along with the Sind River. We take a 1 hours hike to reach the Glacier through the pine forest.
Thajwas Glacier is a famous attraction at Sonamarg as it is very near and has a good path to walk on. Though one can also drive to the head of the glacier but walking through meadows has its own charm.
Lunch, packed mineral water
