The best thing about treks in living amidst nature in the campsites. When the loudest sound you hear is the music from the gushing of the river.
With a lovely forest and a river next to it, the first camping night at Shitkadi near Sonamarg was truly wonderful.

High alpine meadows Kashmir is known for. This is the stuff we signed up for this trek.

Throughout the trek, you have the company of the sheeps. And this time they gave me a perfect frame with leading lines and the mountains and the greenery — all in perfect balance
