Kashmir is as staggeringly beautiful as it is intriguing. Plagued by volatility over the past few decades, Kashmir is once again coming into its own as a premier tourist destination, both in the summer and in winter. Cradled in the Himalayas, Kashmir is a magical land of silvery lakes and pine & deodar trees, of beautiful flowery meadows in summer and white sheets of snow in winter. It truly is the epitome of Jannat.
