Kashmir, a Land of Serene Beauty !!
A valley between the Great Himalayan Range and the Pir Panjal mountain range, Kashmir is a place of beautiful simplicity and pristine natural beauty. Kashmir is painted with a unique culture that keeps you intrigued throughout your journey, from Srinagar to Sonamarg and Gulmarg till Pahalgam.
Kashmir has a variety of terrains ranging from lakes, snow-capped mountains, coniferous kissed hills to glacier-fed rivers. On one hand, Kashmir is covered with wild untouched terrain, and on the other, there are fields of saffron and orchards of apples awaiting their full bloom. They have a variety of flowers that are a show in themselves. They wait, as photographers after photographers attempt to do justice to them.
Kashmir is a wonderful idea for a visit, especially for those wishing to experience teeth-chattering temperatures and snow for the first time. Sonamarg and Gulmarg promise a lot of fun in the snow and ensure you fly home with snow-capped memories imprinted in your mind’s eye.
When there’s snow around, a snow fight is bound to happen, no matter what your age. You’ll even get a chance to fulfill your lifelong dream of building a snowman.
Enticing cold temperatures with snowfall is one of the many things that Pahalgam has to offer. The weather unlike the blistering cold in Gulmarg, nurtures a variety of apple orchards, vast fields of saffron as well as an array of dry fruits. Pahalgam is a wonderful place to visit for its unique parks like Bethab Valley, Aru Valley, and Chandan Valley. A morning walk or a short stroll can never do justice to the amount of natural beauty there is to see. Betab valley has vast sunny lawns spotted with clusters of tall, coniferous trees. There’s a gushing stream cutting through the park that keeps you company while you gaze at the white Himalayan range.
Kashmir was a wonderful experience and certainly a place that I shall visit often. Even after a week, I realized that there is so much more to explore. I am yet to experience their fall season, their scintillating apples, and more of their mesmerizing landscapes.
