The Rohil Basmai Valley Trek is another eye-opening experience. This trail is a first for the trekking fraternity, with the exception of the locals. The route is versatile since it shows something new at every turn.  You’re hiking up a section of trail that’s packed with boulders when all of a sudden, an alpine lake emerges out of sight, surrounded by glacier snowy peaks.

The lonely aspect of this trail. In this place, it’s hard to find signs of human activity. It is just you and the mountains, with the exception of the Gujjars and Bakarwals.

Located at an altitude of 4000 meters, in one of the remote places to visit in the Kashmir Himalayas,
It lies in the Jammu and Kashmir districts of Ganderbal and Anantnag, sharing its borderline with Zanskar on the other hand, and is dominated by the magnificent peak of kolahoi.
