The less frequented regions of Kashmir valley are worth all the praises. The snow-clad mountains, the swaying fields, the crystal clear streams, the sparkling alpine lakes and the wide valleys under the clear blue sky; all tempt adventurists to trudge as far as it is possible in the region of Kashmir. The Tulail-Gangabal-Naranag trek is also one of the treks that offer all flavours of Kashmir and an experience that can barely be expressed in words. Beginning from the inline area of Gurais valley (for which prior permits are required) the trekking trail passes through the thick pine forests, the famed interconnected seven lakes, the meadows near Duptapani and Trunkhol and the high mountain passes like Zajibal (4180m).
