A Dream Spot just beyond the Imagination

Beyond the Imagination Dream Spot. Kashmir(Srinagar/Gulmarg):: What I heard about the terror among the traveller... Actually was terrible!!! But I forget all the bad things while I was there and enjoyed a lot. I believe Kasmhir is utterly the one of the most beautiful place on earth and as an Indian I am proud to have Kashmir in India.

Staying in the houseboat was the beautiful moment & the boats around the houseboat are floating in the Dal Lake as a means of transport.

Gulmarg was full with Beautiful lush green fields. It was great to see the Highest Polo ground. & the hospitality of the all local peoples ( Kashmiris) including police was good. Leh/Ladhakh/Kargil: Spellbound!! The best Motor Travelling way. Srinagar to Kargil then Kargil to Leh.

I was became enthralled after seeing the views of Green & Dry Mountain Covered with Snow, Dry Hill Snow laden (usually after Kargil), the river, which was running in opposite direction of our way. Although the road was not good while i was travelling From Srinagar to Kargil.. Especially three High Rock Mountain Zozila, Namki La, Fotu La were extremely harsh. Road before some distance from Kargil to Leh was extremely good. Cab Driver was running at 110 KM/hr sometime. It was a thrill experience & some breathtaking landscapes was more than beautiful. Heavy Army presence was there cause the highway is very close to LOC.

Visiting the Rancho's School was a proud feeling moment that how they peoples are helping to poor children in education. I thought that the school was totally damaged but true story was different. Guide told me that only furniture items was totally damaged by the sudden floods caused by a cloud burst & the structure spread in large area, was as it is.

Minimum Temperature at Leh was about -1 to -2 degree. But I was feeling the same as the temperature 5 degree of Our place because the Leh's coldness is very dry and moisture is about zero. The People of Leh are too simple & humble. I don't know how many more times but before leaving this world I want to go there again. :)

Peace and Tranquility

Me and wife just came back a couple of days ago from a trip to Kashmir. Most of our well wishers advised us to postpone/cancel our trip. I was nervous at the sight of so many heavily armed police and CRPF while going to the Hotel from the Airport didn't help to soothe my nerves. While going for our local sightseeing in Srinagar I asked the driver Saajid who was allotted to us on how safe Kashmir was. His answer "Sirji, aap Dilli mein kitna safe ho?" stumped me. His next words "Aap Kashmir mein Dilli se zaada safe ho" made me decide I am going to see and feel Kashmir with an unprejudiced view. From going to the dreaded Lal Chowk in the evening, from going to Kulkar market in the night, from taking early morning walks in Rajbagh to visiting secluded and isolated spots in Sonmarg and Baltaal, from sipping tea with local people at a roadside chai wala in Pahalgam. We felt and saw Kashmir from the warmth in the welcome of our driver Saajid, to the sincere smiles and unforgettable hospitality of Zulfiqar (the Manager at Hotel Mirage) and Gulzar (the manager of the Houseboat called "Lucky Dawn" Peace and Tranquility in a so called "Troubled State" while sipping tea in a roadside chai stall. On coming back to Delhi I asked the question to myself how safe and welcome am I at Delhi? This time the answer came to me very easily.

Jammu & Kashmir Overview

Jammu & Kashmir is India's northernmost state, sharing international borders with Pakistan and Tibet, with Himachal Pradesh to its south. It comprises three very different topographic and cultural regions: Jammu region, Kashmir Valley and Ladakh-Leh. Jammu city is in the south of the state and is the only region that lies in plains and foothills and is the capital of the state for winter. Kashmir Valley to the north of Jammu has higher elevations, encompassed by the Pir Panjal range on the west and parts of the Great Himalayas on the north east. Srinagar town, the heart of the valley is Jammu & Kashmir's summer capital. Ladakh region is a mountain desert terrain and takes up almost 2/3rds of J&K's territory from the centre to the east.   The natural beauty of the Kashmir valley has been a byword for centuries. The 17th-century Mughal emperors retreated here for summers and built some famous gardens. Srinagar town is defined by the River Jhelum, the Dal and Nagin Lakes, canals and backwaters, as well as old wooden architecture and 17th century mosques. Nearby Gulmarg (2730m) is a meadow with one of the highest golf courses in the world and one of India's rare ski resorts.   In contrast to the valley's comfortable altitudes, Ladakh region is so high that it receives no monsoon rains. The Ladakhi peaks go up to the 7135 m (Nun Peak) in the Great Himalayas range and 7464m of the Teram Kangri 1 Peak in the Karakoram range. The region is interspersed with oasis-villages. Ladakh has been home to Mahayana Buddhism for a thousand years and has noted monasteries along the River Indus: Alchi, Basgo, Thikse, Hemis and Lamayuru. Ladakh's capital Ladakh' is a good base for visiting these and for trekking. Snowbound Ladakh is closed off by road between October-June.   Tourism was J&K's main industry till 1989 when political insurgency began here.
