Kashmir-It has always been known as “jannat“, or heaven. whenever i listen "kashmir" around me my mind instantly takes me to the huge mountains covered with snow caps, The green lush valleys, Beautiful mughal gardens, shikara and boat houses floating on the dal lake.
When you are so much obsessed with some place you will never hesitate to visit it again and again...
Yes i have visited kashmir more than 3 times , Here i will share some interesting story from my recent kashmir trip.
Day 1- jammu to srinagar a beautiful,scenic roadtrip
My journey starts in early morning when we arrived at jammu. As i have already made cab and hotel reservation we have picked up from airport and taken to our hotel. After freshning up, we started our roadtrip. on our way to journey we have experienced beautiful sceneries,views, mountains. The road was very beautiful but yes it was equally dangerous too specially jalebi ghat after passing all these we have reached our destination ofcourse "the beautiful srinagar" we have reached at our hotel( impex hill resort ) the resort was very beautiful and situated at the top of the hill and having front view of dal lake.
Day 2- srinagar city tour, sight seeing.
Srinagar is very beautiful i have always feel connection with this city. We have visited many mughal gardens, nishat garden, nehru botanical garden, kashmir is famous for there lush green garden. We have also visited pari mahal and chashma shahi . Pari mahal is situated at such a hieght where you can experience the beautiful view of whole srinagar city. After pari mahal we have reached chashma shahi. Chashma shahi is a natural water spring (cold water) water comes through mountains is very cold and pure. After visiting chashma shahi we started moving towards the main attraction of kashmir yes i am talking about "dal lake"
We went for the Shikara ride and it was a fascinating experience to skim along slowly in the cool waters of Dal Lake and Nagin Lake.
We have also visited the floating market and there are little beautiful girls who is selling jewellery in shikara, we also had some fruit chat, and juices during shikara ride. After 2 hours of beautiful ride we head back to our hotel.
day 3- srinagar to sonmarg.
The next day we started early morning for Sonmarg and this place was very beautiful infact the journey was very awesome. In sonmarg wherever you look, you will be greeted by The snowcapped mountains and the experience was so beautiful that I cannot describe them in words. We were also taken to the zero point and zojila pass where we witnessed the true majesty of the Himalayas. we have also visited kargil war memorial which was the most proud moment of my life.
Sonmarg was surely more beautiful and scenic in compare to other cities of kashmir.
day 4 -Time for farewell.
Well here comes the time when we have to say goodbye to kashmir. Trip ends but we have lot of memories.
Things to keep in mind-
1-your cell phone prepaid connection will not work there you should have BSNL postpaid connection.
