Have you heard about heaven on earth?
We often fall short of words to describe the beauty of Kashmir. Amidst the surreal scenic views and snowfall, you will actually find yourself, your inner self and that’s the magic of beautiful panoramic Kashmir.
Let’s take a virtual tour of the valleys in Kashmir.
Baisaran is located 5 Km from Pahalgam, surrounded by densely wooded forests of pine. Trek for one hour and you will be rewarded with a fantastic eye-catching view of ‘Mini- Switzerland’.
Kashmiri food is known for its uniqueness and heritage, it’s known for its region-specific food like Kashmiri saffron, Kashmiri apple, and the Kashmiri Wazwan, made of assorted spices and meat products. If you’re a meat-lover and like to explore different cuisine ‘Wazwan’ is a must-try when you’re in Kashmir Wazwan meal includes exotic Kebabs, the yummy rogan josh, Nate-yakhni, taba
Pahalgam has located 96 Kms from Srinagar Airport and is 285 km away from Jammu and is situated in the northeast district of Anantnag amidst the serene hills and evergreen forests, the pleasant weather conditions of Pahalgam and the sounds of the water flow of the Lidder Nallah gives the tourists a mesmerizing experience.
Aru valley is upstream of Lidder river and is 12 km from Pahalgam. The place has my heart and it’s an absolute paradise for nature lovers with options for camping and trekking to Kolhoi Glacier. Aru valley it’s known for its captivating beauty and breathtaking views with peaks and meadows, and 20 alpine lakes. Aru valley has recorded heavy snowfall and is a perfect place to practice skiing and heliskiing.
Chandanwari Betaab valley is one of those iconic places famed for shooting many Bollywood romantic tracks, originally named Hajan Valley got its name as Bateeb from the Sunny Deol-Amrita Singh hit debut film Betaab. If given a chance I would spend countless days staring at the terrains and snow-clad mountains, with my soul filled with happiness
Any trip, any adventure, or any occasion is incomplete without friends. It was great to meet a few of our friends at Pulwama and stay for a day to make lots of memories and cherish some beautiful moments.
Took a car to Yusmarg popularly called ‘Meadow of Jesus’, stayed in Yousmarg at Jammu and Kashmir tourism property for two days.
We took a cab from Yusmarg to Doodhpathri. I trekked for 3 long hours passing through the mesmerizing landscapes and the green bed. The fresh air and the sound of water flow have actually healed my bruises while trekking and motivated me to climb 3800 ft above Dudhpatri and introduced me to the World of Eternal beauty.
Dudhpatri means ‘Valley of Milk’ and it’s absolute bliss to visit this place, known for its natural meadows covered with snow. Doodhpathri is a bowl-shaped valley in the Pir Panjal Range of the Himalayas.
Development authority igloos were my home for two days and some of the best days of my life in the lap of nature
We all love to explore the unexplored and witness eternal beauty. Experience the magnificence of nature and feel the surprises it has in store for you. Kashmir you always have my heart.
