Somnarg is the delicate combinations of different natural elements that have given each pocket of Kashmir its immense natural beauty and has created a different nuance in every little pocket. Sonamarg (nullSonmarg) â âthe meadow of goldâ â also owes its immense natural heritage to these varied components that have been strung together to make an unforgettable landscape. The river Sindh flows through the valley and its waters hold trout and mahaseer (nullriver carp). Above, the sky holds shades of blue that would be an inspiration to any artistâs palette. In between the river waters and the sky are acres of open meadows scattered with flowers, tall trees and snow clad mountains. Once again, at Sonamarg, Kashmir proves that it has a beauty that can have only a rare parallel elsewhere in the world.
