Kashmir…when this name comes in our mind then another word come along with this “HEAVEN ON EARTH” and we lost in thinking of its beauty.

After many unsuccessful plans finally I visited there in June’16. As we all hear it’s so beautiful I have many expectations but when I reached there then I realized nobody can explain its beauty because it’s more than beautiful what people explain about it.

Day 1

We reached Jammu and then from there we book a Innova for Pahalgam it’s around 280km from Jammu but its very long journey (around 9hrs)

You can visit :

“Jawahar Tunnel” (Length :2.85km)

A Place which is famous for sweets (sorry I don’t remember name)

I wrote many thing but one thing I just want to tell that Kashmir is a Safe Place and I wrote this heading because when I came back from Kashmir everyone asked that “Kashmir is safe ? “ and I was like Delhi NCR SE SAFE HAI :P….. There you can feel this thing because every Kashmiri ask you 2 question 1: how is Kashmir? And then 2: how you think about Kashmiri? Why don’t we understand if we feel terror here because something is happening in Kashmir then how they feel? They live there, their family lives there.

So please go there and feel the beauty of Kashmir and also see how heaven look. Increase Tourism in Kashmir.
