Harmukh Valley trek is an amazing alpine trail and is considered as the most beautiful trek in Kashmir. Camping beside the Gangabal Lake (the largest alpine lake of Kashmir) and beholding the lofty Mount Harmukh towering at the height of 5142 meters, 4th highest mountain of Valley.
Known as the Eiger of Kashmir, it was from Mount Harmukh that Thomas Montgomery, a great trigonometric surveyor, first discovered K1 and K2 Mountains in 1865.
