Treat Your Eyes in the Seventh Heaven Kashmir

By Raj Mehta Subscribe to RSS | January 16th 2012 | Views:

Profoundly the Seventh Heaven, Kashmir’s radiance is unmatched. Mesmerizing as it sounds, Kashmir is the diamond in the Indian crown. The mountain retreat of the Mughal and Buddhist Lamas, the grand Alps on India which Jehangir famously called the Valley of Paradise, it’s only Kashmir. One of the most wildest and controversial tourist destinations of India, after being isolated for decades, Kashmir has struck back on the Tourism pendulum and is attracting number of tourists to the valley. Kashmir is where the true mountain beauty of India unveils itself, where Nature stops and accumulates the colors and spreads them around.

Blossoming gardens, pinewoods, gleaming lakes, breathtaking landscape, verdant vegetation, garrulous waterfalls, plunging valleys, Kashmir is indeed a heaven on earth. Such is the charm of Kashmir that no human language can interpret its beauty in its most profound words. Kashmir is not just a naturalist and a traveler’s pilgrim but also a sports enthusiast heaven too. Situated on the top of India, Kashmir is situated mainly on the Himalayan range, surrounded by China and Azad Kashmir (In Pakistan) internationally and Punjab and Himachal Pradesh on domestic frontiers. The Valley is divided in three districts namely Jammu, Kashmir and Ladhakh.

Jammu is the biggest city in the state of Jammu and Kashmir. Jammu is the City of Temples and every year, tens of thousands of people visit this landmark city which is home to many holy sites of various religions like Vaishno Devi Mandir in the Hills of Vaishno Devi. Poonch district which has been mentioned in Sanskrit and Pali literature several times is also situated in Jammu. Other tourist Places in Jammu are Patnitop, Sanasar, Mantalai, Shickhori, Shahdra Sharif Shrine, Bhimgarh Fort, Ramnagar fort in Udhampur District, Peer kho Cave etc. Jammu is the ultimate destination for Pilgrimage tourism.

Kashmir, on the other hand is the fascinating valley of low paved tiny grasslands, aqua blue sky sparkling over the bright sun covered with crumbled nylon clouds, blossoming gardens, lustrous lakes decorated with pink lotus flowers growing over them. Kashmir Tour Operators are serene and the epitome of Natural bliss. The iconic Dal Lake in Srinagar, popular for its majestic houseboats called Shikaras is a tourist’s delight. Pahalgam offers tourists the effervescent scenery of the vast landscape. Gulmarg is also a popular hill station with enthralling surroundings, astounding lakes and the spell binding ambiance. Amongst others, not to be missed destinations in Kashmir are the Amarnath Temple, Sonamarg, Shalimar Garden, Manasbal Lake, Nishant Gardens, Bangus Valley, Hari Parbat etc.

Ladakh is the little Tibet in Jammu and Kashmir etched in the middle of Karakoram and the Himalayan Range of Mountains. Leh is the largest city in Ladakh. Apart from a sports tourism epicenter, it is also one of the few lasting domiciles of Buddhism following people in South Asia. It is also sometimes referred to as one of the few last mountain Shangri las. Its remote beauty is well recognized. Ladakh offers extravagant panoramic views of the Indus valley near Leh. Don’t forget to pay homage to Leh, Drass Valley, Suru Valley, Kargil, Zangskar, Zangla, Sani Monastery etc during your stay in Ladakh.

Decades back, Kashmir Tourism was considered a taboo but with time, this conflicted valley has opened up to the outer world and its indescribable magnificence is what’s worth going to Kashmir for. Absolute delight for eyes, Kashmir is pure divinity for tourists.
