FAQs

Ques: 1 What is the best time to visit Warwan Valley trek?

Ans: 1 The optimal time for embarking on the Warwan Valley trek is from the second week of July to the first week of September. Prior to July, traversing the Valley becomes exceedingly challenging due to the prevailing snow conditions both before the pass and on the glacier. The snow accumulation makes the route impassable, posing difficulties for trekkers. As the trek progresses into the first week of September, the weather starts to cool down, and there’s a possibility of heavy snowfall. This shift in weather conditions can further complicate the journey. Hence, it’s crucial to plan the trek during this specific window when the weather is relatively stable, and the trail is more manageable. However, venturing on this trek after September is not recommended. The weather becomes even colder compared to August and early September. Varglass becomes a rare occurrence, and crossing rivers becomes significantly more challenging. The streams become difficult to navigate, and the chilling temperatures can lead to an uncomfortable experience, with the risk of trekkers losing sensation in their feet while crossing rivers or streams. Therefore, it is advisable to plan the Warwan Valley trek within the recommended timeframe to ensure a safe and enjoyable adventure.

Ques: 2 Where is the Warwan Valley located?

Ans: 2 Warwan Valley is located in the Kishtwar district of Jammu & Kashmir.

Ques: 3 What is the duration of the Warwan Valley Trek?

Ans: 3 The trek typically spans 7 to 8 days, commencing from Panikhar and concluding at Basmina, covering a distance of approximately 78 km. Each day involves hiking distances of 10 to 12 km, taking around 6 to 7 hours to complete. Before planning this trip, you must consider one or two buffer days. These will help you reduce exhaustion, especially on days when you have to trek around 16 km.

Ques: 4 How safe is it the Warwan Valley trek?

Ans: 4 Warwan Valley trek is considered a moderate-to-challenge trek that unfolds across diverse landscapes, leading adventurers from the dry mountains of Kargil to the lush greeny high-altitude meadows of Kashmir. On day 3 of the trek, you will encounter a challenging hike where you need to cross a trail near a lake. This segment requires careful consideration due to loose rocks, a scree trail, moraines, and glacier walk. Exercise caution, especially with crevasses and the potential for avalanches originating from the nearby mountain during this third-day hike. For the rest of the days be careful while crossing streams.
