Chattargala pass to Sonbain Glacier - a novel and difficult route

Sonbain at 3130 metres is a day trek accessible glacier near Bhaderwah. Whereas the moraine covered approach to most glaciers is usually devoid of any vegetation; Sonbain glacier is a bit of an anomaly. The slope below the glacier is a natural flowerbed. After the monsoons, this slope erupts in a riot of purple, yellow and red colour flowers that makes Sonbain a vibrant and cheerful glacier to visit.
