Dras Tourism & Travel Guide

Widely known as the coldest place in India, Dras is a magnificently barren mountainous terrain. Engulfed within sky-touching peaks, embellished by the snow in ruthless winters and highland pastures, this little town rests in the Kargil district of Jammu and Kashmir. Dras opens the gates to the magical kingdom of Ladakh. The city preserves an ornate memorial for the martyrs of the Kargil War. Hearing tales of the army guarding enemy lines will make your heart go out to them. Sonamarg to Dras is an odyssey brimming with ethereal surreality and cutting through Zoji La, though it is a tad bit tiring. It is a slow affair induced by the incredulous mighty mountainous passes that lure you away into a never-wanting-to-end vacation.

Gar firdaus ruhe zamin ast, Hamin asto, hamin asto, hamin ast. “If there is a heaven on earth, it’s here, it’s here, it’s here.” This is how the Sufi mystic Amir Khusrow has described the Kashmir Valley, and Srinagar is at the heart of the valley. Smack in the middle of the city is the mighty Dal Lake, its placid water reflecting the vivid kaleidoscope of innumerous houseboats, shikaras (taxi-boats), and the snow-capped Pir Panjal range: a sight that will make your heart skip a beat. The city is home to the state-of-the-art Mughal Gardens, Shalimar Bagh and Nishant Bagh being the most famous of them. The gardens exhibit the Mughal taste of nature and the philosophy of disciplining nature rather than imitating it: fountain pools and canals, meticulously manicured hedges, and motley flowerbeds. Also known as the Kashmiri Venice, Srinagar is a place not to be missed by those seeking a tranquil refuge in the lap of the Himalayas.
