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.

About Upshi

By afternoon we had descended 60 kms from Tanglang La and were entering the mesmerizing “Indus Valley”. The colossal river Indus was flowing along the road and the first village we came across was the beautiful “Upshi”. It was after 24 hours that we encountered a densely populated human settlement. A peaceful, beautiful and serene set up with some amazingly colorful rock creations ( the red and purple mountains) inhabited by agile and cautious “Blue Sheep”. Our driver stopped near a spring for car wash and we enjoyed the crystal clear natural spring water having unparalleled taste and freshness. Nearly all the houses were accompanied by three to four “chortans” of different sizes. A humongous Buddhist prayer wheel situated in the center of village evidently gave an idea of the religious faith of the residents.
