ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL! I and my 16-year-old daughter went for Sar Pass hiking. We both were amazed by the beauty of the pace. Camping in Kasol was the best thing about the trip. We got to learn so many new things. The experience was truly unforgettable. You should definitely add this destination is your bucket list.

I love trekking alone as I get plenty of time to peep into my thoughts. Last month I went to Sar Pass hiking alone and honestly it was one of the best experience of my life. The place was really beautiful and enchanting. Since I am an experienced trekker, the trek was not much of a challenge for me but the virgin beauty of the place was something which I was dying to experience. Do give it a try friends. I am sure you would love it!
