Thajwas Glacier lies one hour walk before Sonamarg. Two and a half hours drive from Srinagar takes us to Sonamarg, driving on Srinagar-Leh Highway along side the Sind River. We take a 1 hours hike to succeed in the Glacier through the pine forest.
Thajwas Glacier may be a famous attraction at Sonamarg because it is extremely near and features a good path to steer on. Though one also can drive to the top of the glacier but walking through meadows has its own charm.
