All About It
Kashmir holds multiple beautiful options for trekking. Known for its serenity and poise, Tarsar Marsar is arguably the prettiest trek in the Kashmir region. The trek, which stretches over 47 km, magnificently switches landscapes from the boulders-strewn stretches, snow-fed lakes, sparkling rivers, mighty mountains, vast valleys, scenic meadows, flower sections, and heaven-like peaceful arena. The Tarsar Lake or Tar Sar is an almond-shaped alpine lake situated in Aru, Jammu, and Kashmir and separated by 4000 ft by Marsar Lake, popularly known as the twin sister of Tarsar lake for its similar nature. The elusive Marsar lake is almost always hidden under a shroud of clouds that waft their way through the U-shaped valley to settle above the lake finally.
The vast and lush green grassland makes this place alluring. What makes the entire experience out worldly is the trail that is dotted with mud houses and shepherds' flocks. Here is a brief itinerary of the Tarsar Marsar trek with Plan the Unplanned:
Day 1: Commence the journey from Srinagar to Aru; acclimatize for the day.
Day 2: Trek to Lidderwat, covering vast views; witness the Lidder river and Kolahoi glacier meeting.
Day 3: Trek to Shekwas. On the way, catch your breath while talking to locals and visit Bakerwal shelters.
Day 4: Ascent to Tarsar Lake. Also, look at Kolahoi peaks covering and overlooking the lake.
Day 5: Climb to Sundersar lake after crossing the Tarsar pass
Day 6: Reach the highest point of our trek to Marsar lake that also connects to Dachigam National Park. Stay overnight at Homwas
Day 7: Final descent to Aru. From Aru, we pack our bags and return to Srinagar.

What’s life without adventure? Isn’t the real purpose of life to travel, to experience new places, and witness the sunrise from new mountaintops?
This thought is what united Jatin and Tarun over a cup of chai, in spite of being from two unrelated backgrounds (CA and IT). They knew each other since the time Jatin was helping Tarun learn the ways of the wilderness through weekend treks and outings with another traveling group. Their love for traveling and trekking together motivated them to start something of their own. Thus was born “Plan The Unplanned”, where travel goals come true. Under the Companies Act, Plan The Unplanned is incorporated as Unplanned Journeys Private Limited
They started their journey on unsteady ground, much like any other company, but they shared an infatuation for travel and adventure with their customers, which amplified their determination, and thus, Plan the Unplanned family keeps getting bigger every day!
