Landscape of Sonmarg, Kashmir, India
Sonmarg is a popular tourist destination in Kashmir. Vehicles driving from Srinagar to Ladakh usually take their first halt at Sonmarg. It is mainly popular for the Thajiwas glacier and the streams that the glacier melt creates. By the time we went in late summer, the glacier had almost melted. Streams were flowing in full force.
Gujjars, the nomadic shepherds had set up their camps around this stream. Their colorful tents are seen here in the background.
