At a height of 2 740m Sonamarg is the last major point in the Kashmir valley before the Zoji La pass into Ladakh . At the pass the green lush Kashmiri landscape abruptly switches to the barren dry landscape of Ladakh. Sonamarg is thus not only a good base for treks but also a jumping off point for trips into Ladakh. The name means Meadow of Gold and although this could be due to the profusion of flowers that carpet the meadow in the spring it is also possible that the name derives from Sonamarg s strategic trading position in the days when this was a major route into central Asia. The Sindh River meanders along here and abounds with Trout and Mahseer.
