Hi I am Dola Sil from West Bengal. Today I will share my joyful experience of my trip to Kashmir.

Yusmarg meadow-paradise of nature lovers ,not so frequented by common travelers

Kashmir is really the paradise on earth, paradise in the sense that you can see the rows of shikara on Dal Lake, the herd of sheep grazing on the meadows of Pahalgam, the beauty of sunrise and sunset on the Dal Lake, the basket of apple, and the beautiful snow peaks of Sonmarg .But people have some fear in their mind when they plan for Kashmir trip because of the militant activities. But during our trip to Kashmir, we did not have any such bitter experiences, but we were overwhelmed by the polite and friendly behaviour of Kashmiri people.

Sonmarg-Meadow of gold

During our 8 days trip we stayed at the beautiful super deluxe houseboat “Young Beauty Star “at Dal Lake, where we receive such a very friendly atmosphere that reminds me the ancient myth ”Atithi Devovabo”-that means that guests are equal to god. From Srinagar we went to Gulmarg, Sonmarg, Pahalgam, and Yusmarg.

Enchanting Aru valley-pahalgam

We are mesmerised by the beauty of Kashmir. One can watch the busy life of water in Dal Lake ,can enjoy the skating on the Zero Point at Sonamarg, the meadows and he charming river ‘Lidder’ of Pahalgam and Aru Valley can give an enchanting effect in mind.

Lidder River-Pahalgam

‘Yusmarg’ in Budgam district of central Kashmir is a comparatively offbeat place,but just a two hour drive from capital city Srinagar. The beauty of meadows and the sheep grazing there give an eye soothing effect . According to me, it is one of the most beautiful place in Kashmir. People do not hear much about this place. It is the paradise of Kashmir. The pin drop silence of “Yusmarg” chilled the mind . One can merge oneself in the beauty of nature here. When I returned home, I felt sad.

Will cherish the memory of this houseboat in Srinagar where we spent 7 nights

Through my writing I want to make people aware that Kashmiri people are very friendly. They try their best so that the tourists do not face any inconveniences during their trip to Kashmir.
