Round Trek 4Nights/5Days

Trekking in Kashmir does not mean just walking over forested mountains as it combines nature and the local culture. As the trekker climbs higher, the landscape changes. Chinar and poplar trees are replaced by fir, pine and oak and finally Burch trees, the alpine meadows and a profusion of colorful wild flowers.

Trekking in Kashmir does not mean just walking over forested mountains as it combines nature and the local culture. As the trekker climbs higher, the landscape changes. Chinar and poplar trees are replaced by fir, pine and oak and finally Burch trees, the alpine meadows and a profusion of colorful wild flowers. The simple villagers in the plains with their fruit orchards and paddy fields are replaced by migrant families of Nomads / Gujjars, herdsmen who cross the high mountain passes with their cattle in search of greener pastures.

Dear Travellers,
Today I have spent with reading, playing finite and enjoying the views, sounds and smells of beautiful upper Pahalgam Valley. It is the last of 15 lovely and adventurous days we explored kashmir. Together with Shaban and Aijaz. We went on great horse treks to Aru, sheshnag Valley and the mountains around pahalgam. This Valley is one of the most beautiful mountain valleys I have ever come across.
Thank you Shaban for being a great friend and guide in all aspects and to your friends who let me had a family type of insight into kashmiri life style.
(LIVE IN JOY,
IN LOVE,
EVEN AMONG THOSE WHO HATE.
LIVE IN JOY, IN HEALTH,
EVEN AMONG THE AFFLICTED.
LIVE IN JOY, IN PEACE,
EVEN AMONG THE TROUBLED.
LOOK WITHIN. BE STILL.
FREE FROM FEAR AND ATTACHMENT, KNOW THE SWEET JOY OF THE WAY.
I WILL HIGHLY RECOMEND LONE SHABAN AND HIS TREKKING COMPANY FOR TREKKING and sightseeing in kashmir especially in Pahalgam.

Dear Shaban
Thank you very much for making my stay in Pahalgam so wonderful.
I know I came early in the season and most of the best hikes were still closed. I would have left after two days out of disappointment if you Shaban to show me around and take me to beautiful, quite places with great views. I had a lot of fun hiking up a mountain only to slide it down on the poncho afterwards. Also that we almost spotted a snow Leopard (actually seeing the prints already made my day perfect) added much to the great joy I had in this stay here.
Shaban looked after me so well. Including a hot water bottles every evening, so that I didn’t freeze off my feet in bed.
Thank you very much again and I can’t wait to come back for the real great hikes in September.
All the best.
I am looking forward to see you again and working together with you again.
I will highly recomend lone shaban and his trekking company for trekking and sightseeing in kashmir mostly in Pahalgam..

We had been in touch with Mr Lone Shabban right from the start days of our Kashmir tour planning. He was in touch with us and guided us on what all places we can visit in Pahalgam and its surroundings. He has an in-depth knowledge of the seasons and the places to visit. We missed a wonderful trekking tour with Mr Lone Shabban due to sickness and other commitments. He was very kind enough to contact our hotel and check on us if we were doing fine. I rate him highly since he genuinely cares about his clients. He is a very kind hearted person and a great trek guide
