Jammu and Kashmir

The kind of beauty that inspired kings to conquer, travellers to wander, singers to lyric and poets to rhyme, Kashmir has captured everyone, and yet no one has really been able to capture Kashmir. Incredibly beautiful, with stories to tell, Kashmir remains largely unexplored and enchanting. Mughal emperor Jahangir's 'paradise on earth' has been ridden with frequent terror attacks in previous decades; unrest on such a scale is nowjust a small part of Kashmir's illustrious history. Things today have changed considerably. Don't be surprised if you spot army outposts around every corner; however, with tourism being Kashmir's primary source of income, tourists are usually safe. Breathtakingly stunning vistas with tulips or snow depending on your season of choice, Kashmir has everything from glaciers to pine-wood valleys.

Things to do

Gulmarg day visit-The' skiing destination every winter, Gulmarg is the 'valley of flowers' in summer. A delightful hour and a half's drive from Srinagar, breathtaking views lead you to this quaint valley surrounded by snow-capped mountains. Rolling meadows with streams bubbling past scores of wildflowers andpine,past fir trees silhouetted against the sky, make Gulmarg Kashmir's best-known secret.

Pahalgam and Bataab valley day visit-A perfect little town in the midst of superb coniferous forests, Pahalgam is clearly the last word in tranquillity. An approximately 96-kilometre drive from Srinagar, past saffron fields, apple orchards and sulphur springs, the approach to Pahalgam is a vision to behold.

Sonmarg day visit-Here besides the Nallah Sindh, set against snow capped mountains and clear blue skies, the 'meadow of gold' comes to life.A mere three-hour drive from Srinagar,lies a reminder of times gone by - before you had wi-fi at every coffee shop and crossing a road in town was never an issue with mortality.
