Experience endless ecstasy with a tour to Kashmir

By Ajay Kumar Subscribe to RSS | March 20th 2012 | Views:

A tour to Kashmir is yearned by both Indians and foreigners for the simple reason that it brings you one step closer to the Mother Earth in all her lush greenery & natural resplendence. Kashmir is nestled in the state of Jammu & Kashmir in northern India flanked by the mighty Himalayas and Pir Panjal Range. Srinagar that serves as the state’s summer capital is one of the biggest draws. It is noted for its picturesque beauty and bewitching Dal Lake. Gulmarg is another hot destination that is renowned for its picture-perfect landscape flanked by flower parks.

Kashmir sightseeing: Kashmir tour is a lot about soaking in the cosmopolitan culture and visiting numerous holy sites & shrines. Some of the mosques or Masjids evoke awe due to their sheer size, architectural beauty and divinity they encompass. Temples such as the Maharani Temple (in Gulmarg) or the Shankaracharya Temple (in Srinagar) will also adorn your path. The colorful & feisty Srinagar boasts of a number of Royal gardens built during the Mughal era. Such gardens particularly the Shalimar Bagh and the Nishat Bagh (in Srinagar) will surely give you a feel of nostalgia. History comes alive in its true glory!

Perhaps, the greatest charm of a holiday to Kashmir is the Dal Lake and its Shikara rides. A ride on a ‘Shikara’ or houseboat over the limitless rippling waters of Dal Lake can be extremely seductive and highly romantic. Gamers can have their share of fun with canoeing, angling, wind surfing and kayaking.

Where to stay: Kashmir takes pride in its array of hotels, inns and guest houses as well as luxurious resorts. Affordable and excellent hotels are always available. Also, you can buy a Kashmir tour package, inclusive of Srinagar package, and Kashmir sightseeing to enjoy a pleasant holiday to Kashmir.

When to visit: Best time for a tour to Kashmir is between May-September for ideal climatic conditions. If you love snow & winter games (skiing), you can also head to this hilly paradise during December-January but do not forget to pack in all your woolens.
