Kashmir tour is very special for everyone and in one post you can’t describe all the places of Kashmir. So in this post I describe some specific mesmerizing places of Kashmir.
“If there is Paradise on earth, it is this, it is this, and it is this.”
– – Emperor Jahangir
One of the most excellent places of Kashmir is Gulmarg. In winter this place covered by snow and its look like an amazing place but when we visited at Gulmarg that time we didn’t found so much snow but the weather was pleasant. In summer there is a facility of horse riding to see the glacier at your near. But we have shortage of time so we went another place.
There is also a temple namely Maharani Shiv Mandir though that time there was no line for worship. So we saw the temple very smoothly.
Sonmarg is a beautiful place where one can witness both snow and green landscapes. Sindhu River is pass away from that place and one saw the glaciers from that place, its god own country.
We had travelled Srinagar to Pahelgao and the distance between those two places is 87 km. pahelgao is a town of Anantanag district of Jammu and Kashmir. This town is situated on the river bank of Lider River.
The main attraction of this place is Aru Valley and Betab Valley. It is very popular place of Kashmir.
This is mainly a valley region. We had spent almost 2 hours of that place. This valley surrounded by mountain, snow and forest and the sound of flute came from far away, so that create a pleasant and pacify environment.
