Being said that Kashmir is a 'Paradise' on earth, I believe its exceptional beauty cannot be contained in words and pictures. It is the careful blending of pleasant sound made by flowing river with cold breeze arising out of snow- covered valleys which makes you feel like you are on 7th heaven. The serenity of place holds the power to make you forget about daily life routines and indulge fully in whatever nature offers to your senses.
A rewinding of our four day trip takes me to the moment we reached Gulmarg from srinagar airport and checked in to 'The Meadows' a beautifully crafted, wooden structure, standing amidst snow covered hills, where we were offered kashmiri kahwa, a famous kashmir beverage, as welcome drink. From there, we went for an excursion to the valleys of gulmarg and experienced world's second longest gondola ride. Travelling on a cable with snow covered mountains all around, I felt like going through a secret rope-way to heaven.
