Mohand Marg

Home of Sir Aurel Stein

Mohand Marg Trek

Mohand Marg is an alpine meadow of Kashmir Himalayas. The meadow gives a panoramic view of Pir Panjal range, Gadsar Range and Mount Kolahoi. The meadow was home to the great Hungarian-born British Explorer, Archeologist and Scholar of Sanskrit Sir Aurel Stein. Sir Aurel Stein first came to Mohand Marg in 1895 where he started his accounts on Rajatarangini, a 12th century CE historical chronicle of the north-western Indian subcontinent.  Sir Aurel Stein had wished to get his burial in the Mohand Marg but left the meadow in 1934 for his work and died in Kabul.
