Known as the Switzerland of India, Kashmir is a place which is of immense beauty. It is famous not just in India, but also all over the world for its paradisiacal appeal. The sprawling lakes, towering mountains white with snow blankets, acres of apple farms and bushes of colorful roses make Kashmir a true personification of heaven.

If you have been wondering which place you should explore this vacation, Kashmir can be a good consideration. Your trip will be no less than an exotic tour abroad because Kashmir itself is heaven on earth. Start researching on the various holiday package deals and choose the best Kashmir tour package. You will get the best hospitality by all the hotels in Kashmir. Read further to get a snapshot on what your Kashmir tour package holds for you.

The best way to spend a vacation in Kashmir is to spend time amidst nature. Hotels in Kashmir are aptly built to bring the beauty of the outdoors within the hotel. Stunning views are visible from your room windows. Another great option you have is to stay in a houseboat in Srinagar so that you are nearer to nature and can experience the local way of life in Kashmir. Here, a lot of people live on the water in houseboats. The many lakes in Kashmir make this possible.

You must have definitely heard of the Dal Lake whenever there is a mention of Kashmir. Dal Lake is situated very much in Srinagar. It is a very picturesque place. When you visit this lake, you will vouch for its beauty. You can see beds of lotuses and different kinds of flowers and vegetables growing in the lake. The entire area is hilly and you will get to see very good landscapes in and around the Dal Lake. You can enjoy the shikhara ride as well. The place is so beautiful that you can spend the entire day lost in the beauty of this picturesque locale.

On the second day of your Kashmir tour package, you can visit Pahalgam. On the way to Pahalgam, you can stop at Avantipur where there is an old temple of Lord Vishnu. Most of it is in ruins now but the place is still worth a visit. At Pahalgam, you can splurge on shopping by exploring and shopping at the local market. You should shop for some of the unique stuff available only in Kashmir.

Another place which is worth a visit is Gulmarg. If you are a nature’s worshipper, this place is heaven for you. The scenic beauty is bound to rejuvenate your senses. If you are interested in adventure sports such as skiing and snowboarding, Gulmarg offers lots of opportunities. One of the world’s highest ski lift known as the gondola ski lift is also a major attraction here. The view from here is absolutely breathtaking.

After Gulmarg, you can visit Sonmarg, which is a gateway to Ladakh. You can plan your Leh Ladakh tour and take off from Sonmarg. Your Leh Ladakh tour will be a different experience altogether. Unlike Srinagar and other tourist destination, Leh and Ladakh are sparsely populated, which gives you an unmatched tranquility, peace and solace. The views here are very different as well because there is very little greenery and the towering mountains dominate the scene. Hotels in Kashmir can arrange a roundabout trip to Leh and Ladakh.

Whenever you plan a trip to Kashmir, you should include Leh Ladakh tour as well. The place offers adventure sports, lot of sightseeing destinations, scenic natural beauty and much more.
