High altitude Himalayan fly fishing adventure
16-days / 15-nights | Gulmarg
Fly Fishing Expedition Overview
Many of our clients have fished for trout before, but what you will find in Kashmir is a unique trout fishing experience. Perhaps the aggressive currents have built a more resilient species. Perhaps the trout have inherited the survival instinct necessary in the harsh Himalayan climate. Perhaps the cold temperatures make them fight more fiercely. Perhaps they remain natural predators as they have never been baited or fed. No matter the reason, you will notice that the trout bite astonishingly well and are remarkably aggressively. Their flesh is subtly pink and tastes particularly rich. Flavourful and bright, these fish are another hidden gem in Kashmir’s crown of stunning natural resources. Those with the tenacity to complete our 16-day treks will be rewarded with an unsurpassed fishing adventure.

This is our signature 16-day fly fishing expedition, bringing you some of the best trout fishing in the world. You will enjoy 7 full days and 3 half days of fly fishing at numerous high altitude locations throughout your journey. Since we arrive at each campsite in the afternoon, it’s also possible to fish during sunset.
The trek itself is in the direction of Sonamarg to Narayannag and has a gentle decline in most sections, making it suitable for most people of reasonable fitness and mobility. The trek itself is consolidated into 5 days and has a gentle decline in most sections, making it suitable for most people of reasonable fitness and mobility. In addition to fly fishing adventures, the route itself is inspiring and will allow you to explore Kashmir’s wilderness and culture. Your journey ends with a cultural stay in a houseboat on Dal Lake before flying home.
