picturesque kashmirSet like a jewelled crown on the map of India,   Kashmir is a multi-faceted diamond, changing its hues with the seasons - always extravagantly beautiful. The natural beauty has been described in terms of emerald pastures, sapphire water and pearly snow. Every 100 feet of altitude brings a new phase of climate and vegetation. The floor of the valleys is flat with lush patchwork of different shades of green, glinting with waterways that mirror poplars and weeping willows. Mountains are carpeted with Firs and Pine making way for the streams tumbling down with crisp clean water.  Two major Himalayan ranges, the Great Himalayan Range and the Pir Panjal, surround the landscape from the north and south respectively. They are the source of great rivers, which flow down into the valleys, forested with orchards and decorated by lily-laden lakes.

Situated in the northern part as the crown of India, the vale of Kashmir is one of the most beautiful regions of India. The state is ancient and has a history of around 4,000 years. Called the ‘Switzerland of India’, the brilliance of its snow-capped mountains, the tranquility of its silver lakes, a romantic journey on its houseboats and the splendour of its gardens hail the nature lovers from all over the world.

The Mughals aptly called Kashmir Paradise on Earth’ where they journeyed across the hot plains of India, to the valley’s cool environs in summer. Here they laid, with great love and care, Srinagar’s many formal, waterfront gardens, now collectively known as the Mughal Gardens. Anecdotes of four and five centuries ago describe their love for these gardens, and the rivalries that centred around their ownership. They also patronized the development of art & craft among the people of Kashmir, leaving behind a heritage of exquisite artisanship among these people and making the handicrafts of the land prized gifts all over the world.

Kashmir is a land where myriad holiday ideas are realized. In winter, when snow carpets the mountains, there is skiing, tobogganing, sledge-riding, etc. along the gentle slopes. In spring and summer, the honey-dewed orchards, rippling lakes and blue skies beckon every soul to sample the many delights the mountains and valleys have to offer. Golfing at 2,700 m above the sea, water-skiing in the lakes and angling for prized rainbow trout, or simply drifting down the willow fringed alleys of lakes in shikaras and living in gorgeous houseboats are some of the most favoured ones.
