I had been to Sonmarg with my family. We had heard that the best places in Kashmir are Srinagar, Pahalgam and Gulmarg, but when we reached Sonmarg, we were in for a surprise. It is believed that there is a well in Sonmarg, whose water can turn anything into gold. As we were moving towards Sonmarg in our car, we realized that the road to Sonmarg is picturesque. The drive to Sonmarg through Sindh valley is enchanting. Sonmarg itself is a place of beauty. Sonmarg is captivating because it is surrounded by dense forests and is full of flowers. What makes Sonmarg even more gorgeous is the Sindh River which meanders through it. The Thajiwas range is a very popular range in Sonmarg because it provides a number of sites for camping. The Thajiwas range also includes waterfalls and the wonderful Thajiwas glacier. When we went to Sonmarg, there was snow even on the sides of the road. We got down from our car and started playing in the snow and it was a lot of fun. When we reached Sonmarg, we were hungry and there was a very small joint there where we had tea. The next day, we hired a sledge and went sledging on the snow. This again was a lot of fun. When we went sledging, we were shouting at the top of our voices.
