Tours around Kashmir are always referred as “Heaven on the earth” for a reason. The natural beauty, the breath-taking picturesque scenery and the snow-clad Himalayas create an irresistible charm. The myth and reality blend into enchanting views and experiences for travellers.
A visit to Kashmir must be a part of everyone’s bucket list. Pahalgam, though a small town, is a picture-perfect spot. From green and lush meadows in the Betaab Valley and the intriguing treks to untouched hilly terrains, this hill station humbles travellers in the form of Mother Nature. The view of snow-capped mountains and pine trees have tourists yearning for more and though not every tour package of Kashmir includes Pahalagam, this destination should be explored by all for an unforgettable holiday.
Leh and Ladakh, “The Moon Land”, embrace travellers with the snow-clad mountains, pristine waters and a peaceful Buddhist culture. This “Little Tibet” is a divine and spiritually blessed destination that exudes serenity and beauty through several monasteries, Pangong Lake, and adventure travel destinations. From trekking in Zanskar, to a walk on the frozen river to mountain biking in Leh, the thrilling and majestic experiences in Leh and Ladakh are life-altering indeed.
Gulmarg, the meadow of flowers, is a scintillating hill station that envelops itself with snow in winter and flaunts the meadow of flowers in summer. Skiing, gondola rides and trekking in this region during the winter can provide an incredible adrenaline rush. On the other hand, the summer in Gulmarg boasts golfing and excellent photography opportunities of Alpather Lake. However, the gondola rides across the year are equally stunning experiences.
Srinagar, the summer capital of the state, is blessed with several gardens and 3 lakes, namely Dal Lake, Nagin Lake and Wullar Lake. The “Venice of the East” has such a scenic Shikara ride in Dal Lake that the romance and natural grandeur is a captivating experience for everyone. The gardens, primarily created by the Mughals, are picturesque and magical destinations for a holiday in India.
