Kashmir – Where Beauty Unfolds Like Nowhere Else
Kashmir is a land that exemplifies beauty. So, if you are in search of a place that can drain out all your stress and leave you a completely new person, take some time out and visit Kashmir. The lakes, flowers and the very aroma of Kashmir can make a profound difference to your life.
If you want to take a trip to a place that takes you closer to your inner self, you should sample one of the many Kashmir tour packages. There is something in the air of Kashmir that cools you down, lends tranquility and takes you away from the fast paced life. A stay in Kashmir hotels helps you experience the beauty of slow paced life. Perhaps, it is the peace offered by the deep valleys, stunning lotus filled lakes and towering snow peaked mountains, or perhaps it is the beauty of fruit laden trees and flower laden rolling acres, Kashmir epitomizes natural beauty like no other place in the world does. Owing to this reason and also because the infamous terrorist activities in the state have slowed down, there is a significant increase in the demand for Kashmir holiday packages.
There is a legend that relates how Kashmir came to be. It is believed that the entire state of Kashmir was once a colossal lake. The villagers played on the banks of the lake and indulged in numerous merriments. The lake and its surroundings were also loved by the Gods. However, a demon descended into the lake one day and began to ruin the peace of the land. So, the villagers prayed to the Gods who obliged the plea of the devotees and dried up the land, thus driving away the demon and peace was restored. However, there was no water but what remained was breathtakingly beautiful land, which is now the valley of Kashmir. We do not know how true the legend is. Nevertheless, over the years, excavations in the valleys of Kashmir have revealed the skeletons of numerous ancient water creatures, which lend authenticity to the legend of Kashmir.
On the practical front, it is probably not the gods and demons but intense earth quakes and other natural calamities that drained out the water. Whatever is the case, India is blessed to have Kashmir as its crown. When you visit the land by choosing Kashmir tour packages, you will be enthralled by the numerous water bodies, springs, forests, meadows filled with flowers, exotic fruits such as peaches, apples, plums, almonds, pine nuts, walnuts, cherries and loquats in abundance. Water is still a major attraction here, in the form of famous lakes such as the Dal Lake, Mansar Lake, Nagin Lake and Surinsar Lake which make Kashmir holiday packages worth it for every nature lover. Many of the lakes offer houseboat facility. You can spend time in these houseboat Kashmir hotels and have the most unique experience of your life.
Kashmir, owing to its rich beauty, was a favorite hangout of the Mughal emperors. Jahangir called Kashmir as the Paradise on Earth. The Mughals built many gardens which amplify the beauty of Kashmir. Mughal Gardens are the standing testimony of how much they loved this paradise. You must make it a point to visit some of these gardens when you take up Kashmir holiday packages.
Kashmir tour packages can be customized to suit your needs. You can choose Kashmir hotels that suit your tastes since there are different kinds of hotels available. Make sure that you get to spend some time to retrospect in the beauty of Kashmir in order to completely unwind and rejuvenate yourself.
