We were there in the last week of April. Thajiwas Glacier starting point can be approached by your own car as it’s on the way towards Sonamarg. While going to Zero point becomes union controlled zone.

By our experience, there is no value in going to zero point in this month. As there was hardly any snow, most of it was dirty snow.

According to the locals, the snow fall this year has been really low. You can go to zero point to see the view of all the mountains. The roads are hard to approach. Most of us got sick

If you have been to Gulmarg, Thajiwas Glacier, Pahalgam, this place has not much to offer. Definitely you can skip it.

But definitely go to Thajiwas. It’s amazing.

The view is gorgeous. But reaching there is a little difficult, due to road conditions and also because of the local unions.

Its about 30 odd Kms from Sonamarg. Those who have been to mountain passes in the Himalayan region will be familiar with the terrain. There was only a piece of old, darkened, muddy snow rock/glacier which was all that was present for the visitors to experience snow in October. But the real thing to experience is the scenic beauty and the atmosphere. Do keep in mind that you need to pass through Zojila pass which has narrow, curvy, muddy roads prone to landslides. So you need to take an informed decision in case you plan to visit since some may not enjoy such terrains or conditions.

we visited sonmarg in april 2017.The drive from srinagar to sonmarg is lovely.But we got stuck on the way due to some agitation in the area near ganderbal.Finally reached there in the afternoon.We were setup in the front hall of some hotel,I don't remember the name now,where many other tourists were also present.The horrible part was the toilets.There was an intolerable stench and it was so dirty.I almost throwed up.
from there on we took a tata sumo,which took us furthur high,near the slopes,where sledging was done.The locals are all cheaters,even young children 9-10 years old know this art.It was a bit disheartening.Please bargain very hard,or else you are bound to feel cheated later.They took us to see trout fish,which is actually nothing but you have to pay an entry fee of 20 rs per head.completely avoidable.
Sonmarg is very beautiful,like entire kashmir,but everywhere,please be aware of cheaters.

Once you reach Sonmarg, take a union taxi to reach zero point(approx 35 kms) - bargain hard..The dusty road is carved into the mountains & expect a lot of ups & downs..Once you reach here the view of the snow capped mountains is breathtaking.The driver will tell you where you can find fresh snow to play with, however be prepared for a little hike on the mountains to get up close to the snow.Take your own sweet time for the hike as due to high altitude there is less oxygen in the air. Be adequately covered with clothes as the cold winds make it all the more difficult, don't frgt to wear good hiking shoes too.
Overall a thrilling & a memorable experience.
