“We are quite happy that SDA has finally re-opened its office in Sonmarg and now it has a proper address,” said a shopkeeper.

Sonamarg hosts a major base camp for the annual Amarnath pilgrimage via the Baltal route, gaining popularity with the pilgrims who prefer the shorter route to the much longer one via Pahalgam.
