What is the purpose of your vacation? Are you looking to indulge in thrilling activities amidst snow-capped mountains with your friends? Or do you wish to spend some time by yourself and seek peace by the banks of the gushing waters of a valley and breathtaking landscapes? You are probably planning your honeymoon or a family trip about spending quality time with your loved ones and exploring lush greenery sprawling far beyond your vision.

So which one of the above are you? Whatever is your reason for travelling, Kashmir has the answer! Kashmir has something for everyone; hence, it is rightly called the “Paradise on Earth”. Kashmir is situated in the lap of the Himalayas in the Northwestern region of India. Srinagar is the capital of Kashmir. Mountains covered in thin sheets of ice, untouched wild terrains, majestic apple orchid trees and luxuriant greenery are waiting in Kashmir to hypnotise you! Some call it the land of lovers, others call it the abode of Gods, while for the rest, Kashmir is a destination to find abundant peace and exhilaration.

One additional leg of this Kashmir trip will be Gurez Valley. Gurez Valley is locared in Bandipora district 150 km from Srinagar. It is an aesthetic location covered with green pastures, beautiful meadows, dense forests, and mountains piercing the sky! While Gurez Valley will steal your heart, the beauty of Pahalgam will sway you off your feat! The picturesque vistas of Pahalgam, at an elevation of 2740 metres above sea level in Jammu, will surely put you in a state of tranquillity.

Be ready to soak in infinite cold memories with a warm cup of Kuhwa by your side!.
