Popular for its mind-blowing scenic beauty, Thajwas glacier is very near to Sonamarg. The snow-covered mountains and frozen lakes are as beautiful as Greenland and Antarctica. Located at a distance of 3KMs from the town, it is the most easily accessible glacier in the region. Confined to gentle ice-slopes in the summers, Thajiwas Glacier dwindles in the valley of Sonamarg. Tourists are blessed with this magnificent beauty and it is one of the ideal spots for epic photography. Sledding, building snow castles, photography and hiking are the major attractions of Thajwas glacier.
