Tulian Lake is located at Pahalgam in Anantnag District. The Lake lies between the two Himalayan mountain ranges of Pir Panjal and Zanskar. It lies at an altitude of 3,684 metres (12,087 ft) above sea level, 16 kilometers (9.9 mi) southwest from Pahalgam and 11 kilometers (6.8 mi) from Baisaran. This lake remains frozen for a few months in the winter but it stays welcoming for the rest of the year. The lake assumes the shape of number 8, split by a narrow inlet that connects the water source. The color of the water body is quite a contrast to the snow-capped peaks and multi-coloured mountain range adorning the perimeter.
Day 1 : Pahalgam - Kanimarg - Tulian Lake
We start our day tour from Pahalgam to Baisaran early in the morning heading towards Tulian Lake via Kanimarg. The trek is moderate and you can see lush green meadows and grazing lands till you reach Baisaran in about a walk for an hour. As we move forward, we face denser forest whose tall trees barely let the sun come to the ground, and reach the first resting spot of the tour, Kanimarg. You can have a little rest here & refill your requirements, then we can move forward through the steep terrain of the forest again to reach Tulian valley. From here we walk for just a few minutes to finally reach the magnificent wonderland, The Tulian Lake. Enjoy your camping experience, have your dinner and you will feel calm and far away from day to day special routine at this Tulian valley to camp out and overnight stay.
