Imagine a child hopping about in a garden and then imagine yourself taking a similar hop in Kashmir, the eternal paradise on earth, the garden where every adult feels like a child! Though it seems clichéd to brag about the beauty of Kashmir, it indeed is a heavenly destination which can make you become oblivious to your mundane life.
Cheap travel packages and last minute holiday packages are available online so that you can even book a trip just about any time. All you require is that attitude to get coquettish with the nature and giggle happily with the hills and the gardens.
Kashmir is strewn with lakes, hills and gardens. You have the beautiful Dal Lake which is the number one lake in India in terms of popularity and footfalls. Its houseboat ride or the shikara ride is a honeymooner’s ultimate dream. Though Dal Lake is the more popular one, but the neighbors Wular and Nagin are no bad. In fact, some tourists find them much more charming.
Mughal gardens like the Shalimar Bagh and Nishat Bagh should also be on the top of your sightseeing plan. These gardens were built centuries ago and their style reflects the art of the artists of the bygone era. Besides, there is quietness and calm about these places and you cannot hope of finding such soulful spots in cities like Delhi or Mumbai.
Temples and mosques are also present in abundance in Kashmir. The must-visit ones are the Jama Masjid, Hazratbal Mosque and Shankaracharya Temple. Other attractions include Dachigam Wildlife Sanctuary, Shree Pratap Singh Museum and Indira Gandhi Tulip Garden.
Kashmir’s allies like Gulmarg, Sonmarg and Pahalgam are its worthy neighbors. They are sports-centric, panoramic, photogenic and extremely alluring. From taking the pony rides to throwing snows at each other, these places will give you plenty of crazy things to do.
Like they say in movies these days, ‘jee le zara’. So, prance in paradise, buy cheap travel packages to Kashmir.
