I had been to Sonmarg with 3 of my college friends. We wanted to go to Kashmir since a long time, so when our summer vacations began, we headed toward Kashmir. We had heard that Sonmarg is a beautiful place, so we had included it in the places that we were going to visit in Kashmir.
When we were coming back from Sonmarg in our car, there were ice walls on both sides of the road. The sight was unbelievable. The closest railway station to Sonmarg is in Jammu. The closest airport to Sonmarg is in Badgam district.
