For a long time now, I have been fascinated by this part of the country. Unfortunately though, I haven’t had the opportunity to travel to Jammu and Kashmir as much as I’d like to. But all this changed last year when I set out to explore this beautiful, beautiful land! I explored all the popular places including Gulmarg, Sonmarg, Ladakh and it was truly an experience I will not forget.
But what surprises me about Jammu and Kashmir is the lack of information about the small picture-perfect towns, villages I saw on my many drives! To cut my long background story short, I sat my husband down one fine day and pestered him to come out with all of Jammu and Kashmir’s secrets (a local does know best)!
A disclaimer before I begin: I have crossed two of these places the last time I was in Kashmir but haven’t visited any. But from what I hear, if you want to see Kashmir’s pure beauty – this is just where you need to go!
