Kashmir: A Valley from Your Dreams
Unforgettable winter of Kashmir
It has been some most memorable moments of my life and a wonderful winter of ‘The Paradise on earth – Kashmir’ in the mid of December during Kashmir Tour from Ahmedabad.
I started my journey in the morning from Ahmedabad where the average temperature lies around 20 – 26 degree Celsius in the midnight, temp. Falls to 11 – 12 degree Celsius and in just a few hours I was landed in ‘Srinagar – the Summer Capital of Jammu N Kashmir’ where the average temperature lies around 7 – 10 degree Celsius and the journey begins.
A very well known for the dal lake and its houseboat with Shikara. It is also well known for the Mughal Gardens and best Tulip Gardens. The flowers come for a month and go. But among all the major attraction of Srinagar is the Houseboats that must be part of Kashmir Packages.
The perfect example of the Kashmiri tradition. On the way to our houseboat, we got out of the car at Nehru Gate just opposite of Nehru Police Station. We settle in the Shikara for the houseboat. The transfer to houseboat by Shikara was wonderful. Fantastic wooden crafting with the Kashmiri floor carpet makes the houseboat more beautiful. Our stay in the houseboat was memorable and a different experience. It is one of the experiences not to be missed.
The real beauty of Kashmir can be enjoyed from the month of December till July. Some of the lifetime experience you should not miss in Kashmir is the snowfall, Frozen Dal – Lake. The perfect snow white covered Gulmarg, amazing Pine trees fully covered of snow and mind blowing stay in the Houseboat in the Dal – Lake is just out of this world. You can also enjoy the Ski, Ice Skating and other adventurous activities in Gulmarg. And don’t miss the world’s second highest Cable Car Ride – The Gulmarg Gondola.

Last but not the Least the natural beauty of Pine trees and the snow capped mountains the Pahalgam. Lies on the bank of Lidder River. The beauty of this place is so beautiful and the ladder river with the glacier white water makes this place more beautiful. Aru Valley, Chandanwadi, and the Betab Valley are the major sightseeing points for this place. You can also enjoy the Poni ride from the hotel to these places. Chandanwadi is the place from where the journey to amaranth starts.
Every Indian must experience the beauty of this beautiful place – Jammu and Kashmir and should feel proud that we are blessed with such beauty.
One of the worth Visiting places of India. Best time to Visit Kashmir is March End or the April First week when the Tulips bloom for just 15 Days to 30 Days in the entire Year….the only place in India to enjoy and view the Tulips.
