Woke up with the mesmerizing view of green laded mountains. Kashmir tells you to spend your time, to live in the land of the Gods, to ski, to paint, to love. After a joyful shikara ride we headed for our next destination Kargil, (200km) and the streams that always ran parallel to our vehicle throughout the trip. The white fierce river had the magnitude to freeze you in just 40seconds. It drizzled in between with cold breeze streaming through and that’s when the first time I felt the chill.
