Litherwath Trek


Lidderwat Trek from Pahalgam gives a wonderful journey within the pine forest. You will experience terrains likes slush and wet and rocky with fog around. Lidderwat is situated at a distance of 22 km from Pahalgam. The natural beauty of the place is breathtaking with its dense forest and lush green grasslands. Located at an altitude of 3408 m above sea level, it serves as a perfect camping site for tourists. Adventure lovers can undertake a trek up to the Kolahoi Glacier and the twin lakes of Tarsar and Marsar. The place also falls on the path of the trek to the Sindh Valley. Tourists who wish to visit this place can easily hire cabs or ponies from Pahalgam.


Short Itinerary

  • Day 1     Day 1 of the Litherwath Trek :Arriving Aru
  • Day 2     Day 2 of the Litherwath Trek : Trek to Lidderwat

Day 1 : Arrive in Aru

Pahalgam is easily accessible from Srinagar by road. Aru is 12 kms away from Pahalgam. Aru village is a small beautiful village located to the North of Pahalgam, famous for its scenic beauty and snow capped mountains. Aru is less crowded and away from the crowd of Pahalgam. The gushing turquoise waters of Lidder River flowing with grace through the valley will transport you into another world. Trek upto a place called “Green Top” which lies on the mountain further up to Aru Village. It is a 2 hour trek from Aru village and one of the most beautiful places in Pahalgam area. One can see the whole Aru valley from here. Spend the day at the Green Top with the nature. This place is secluded and only once in a while you’ll find shepherds and sheep passing along your way. Return to Aru by evening and stay for the night.

Day 2 : Trek to Lidderwat

Start early morning from Aru and if you’re a trekker, I’d suggest trek to Lidderwat but if you don’t want to trek, you can hire a pony. Lidderwat is around 13 kms away from Aru. The trek is beautiful, from crossing over small patches of snow to little wooden bridges, the views are so scenic that you can’t help but stare at the majestic mountains. Lidder River and tall deodar trees will be your companion throughout this journey. Bring along water and food items from Aru as there’s no habitation ahead of Aru towards Lidderwat. You can return to Aru the same day if you want to.
