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 now, just a small part of Kashmir's illustrious history.

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 and pine, 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 beside 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.

This pleasant season stays on through early September for fruit harvest season. Mid-September turns everything a lovely golden-green as leaves start falling before the first snowfall in late November. Winter valleys remain white with regular intervals of snow till late February. This is the perfect season for some skiing in Gulmarg.
