The state of Jammu & Kashmir (J&K) is the northern-most state of India, comprising Jammu, Kashmir, and Ladakh. Situated amongst the Himalayas, lush with verdant hills, green valleys, cascading waterfalls, and pretty colourful meadows, Kashmir is justly called “Paradise” on earth. Jammu has its share of greenery, and Ladakh is known to have a bewitching landscape. Take our Kashmir Tour Package to discover a region of unending beauty. The city of Jammu is the winter capital of J&K, while Srinagar is the summer capital. Besides a rich variety of flora and fauna, Srinagar is famous for its’ Chinar (maple) trees.
This charming state attracts tourists throughout the year because of its’ exquisite beauty created by the spectacular mountainous landscape. Our Kashmir Travel Package will lead you to dwell in sheer admiration at the many beautiful sights in this region. The sheer natural beauty mesmerises you in J&K, be it on the trek to Mata Vaishno Devi near Katra, the changing colours of the Kheer Bhawani temple in Kashmir, the glorious natural splendour of Srinagar, Pahalgam, Gulmarg, Sonamarg – “Meadow of Gold”, Anantnag – from where the Anantnag spring emanates, as well as the astoundingly beautiful region of Ladhakh.
Divided from Kashmir by the Pir Panjal range, Ladakh, or “Little Tibet”, comprising of Leh and Kargil, also encompasses spectacular scenery. Though there are alpine steppes here, it is enchanting even in its barrenness. The world’s highest cold desert is in Leh, which is about 3,500-m above sea level, with many coloured rocks, but when you take the Kashmir Travel Package to visit Ladakh, you will need to get acclimatised to the climate as there is less oxygen here. Buddhism lies at the heart of Ladakh and there are several quaint monasteries with many Tibetan monks. Trekking and mountain-climbing in its Karakoram ranges are popular with tourists, though there is river-rafting also in the Zanskar River, but trained rafters should take professional guidance. Jeep safaris are popular. Lake Tsomoriri and Pangong Lake are sought after for their beauty, and so is the Nubra or Ldumra Valley – the valley of flowers – at 10,000 ft above the sea.
