A Memorable walk

Sonmarg glacier has a small valley at the foot known as Thajiwas. It is around  4 kms walk from Sonmarg and during summer the main attraction turns out with many people walking on the route of the Sonmarg which leads to Thajiwas. From there is the way that goes to the Shakhdhar hill i ahead, neglecting the glacier from the northeast. The steep slop is a very dangerous place and is recommended not to climb it. There are ponies available to travel up to Thajiwas.
