Haseen wadiyaan...you will love it
Apr 2021 • Family
When we went there it just started to snow, then rain and some bit of sun, it was an overall great experience. We took the snow bike to reach the first level..do note that you need to bargain a lot. This is the only frustrating experience of bargaining which completely spoils your mood. Also the entry to the place was using a ladder which was very slippery and scary too. They should improve the entry point to these snow bikes, not sure if there was another entry point but surely the one we took was very scary.
Sonmarg as such was full of snow, but it had started become hard as we went in second week of April. We took sledge to go upto the glacier point, sledging was an amazing experience, inspite of being in roza those local people do a lot of laborious work. I found it more important to pay these people who pull the sledge more than the snow bikes. There is even skiing experience if you are interested but we did not do it. They take you upto the glacier point which is also called bajrangi bhaijan place. I find that the place has been spoilt by the border that they constructed for this movie...this place would be so much better without those borders. But even otherwise this place is awesome, we loved it. Gulmarg has its own beauty while Sonmarg is even more beautiful.

Amazing views

Sonmarg is a beautiful place covered with snow everywhere but there is lot of loot and no regulation here for the snow activities like snow biking etc.

We visited in March end when it was covered with snow, we wanted to try snow biking.

Try to negotiate the price upfront, officially it is written 2k for 1 hour but it does not take more than 5-10 min for the operator to drop you at the glacier point, so negotiate well, so overall max 15-20 mins to go up and come down by snow bike.

If you want to self drive the snow bike the operator will ask for a tip and only then allow you to ride the snow bike.

Once, you reach glacier point, there will loads of people approaching you for sledge ride.

Overall, a nice place if you love snow and want experience of snow bike if you havent done it in phase 1 of Gondola ride in Gulmarg.

Excellent place but beware of sun burn

We visited in March and snow was fresh. The beauty of the place is breathtaking. View of Thajiwas glacier was just amazing. Kids enjoyed skiing and sledge ride. People are friendly and hard working. Make sure you apply appropriate sunscreen to avoid sun burn as the white snow reflects sun rays.

Waste of time in winters.
Mar 2021 • Family
In winters its too cold here. There is lot of haggling here . Dont pay more than 2500 for the glacier. Its a shame that they still.want to con peiple after all this . Spoil the name of the state . Rather go in summer and take a pony ride.

Enjoyed snowfall
Mar 2021 • Couples
We traveled from Srinagar to Sonmarg in one and half hour. It is 75kms. We reached in between the snow clad mountains, stunning meadows
and luckily it was snow fall today that is icing on the cake. What more you need. Really enjoyed the snowfall.
We hired jackets gum boots and pony for Rs 3000/-
The person took us to see three points. The thing I love most about winter is playing in the snow! Me and Rajesh played a snowball fight, we made footprints and many many more!!!
There is absolutely nothing more peaceful that I can think of than watching snow gently fall. Amazing experience!!!!!

It’s very nice place but destroyed by locals for business purpose. Government nor local police has come out with strict regulation to regularise the harassment done by local to tourist people. This will destroy the tourism industry

Full of snow. Sonamarg is snowy place and the height of the snow is almost 5ft on the roads. Loved the place and would recommend friends to visit.

Views that can soak you in !!!

We visited Sonamarg during a day visit. Sonamarg is a tourist city, locals do not stay there. One should try snow biking there. Ask for the rate card. All operators will ask for a tip at the end of the trip.
