The Narang-Gangabal-Mahlish-Trek expedition features a different return-route and it remains open most of the year. The trek starts at Naranag village. It passes through pine forests, meadows and reaches its destination at the dual alpine lakes Gangabal and Nundkol situated at the foothills of mount Haramukh (5300M). The return route is thru Kolesar Lake situated at an altitude of 3800 meters. The trek concludes at Chattergul Village below the meadow of Mahlish.
The first hike may be a steep climb through the pine forest of Butsheri then a gradual walking through meadows all collide to make a challenging trek in one among the foremost beautiful and serene Himalayas of Kashmir. It becomes a snow-trek in April-May and October-November and presents a singular view of the Himalayas.
