Experince The Charm of Kashmir
Snuggled in the lap of the scenic Himalayas, the northernmost state of India, Jammu and Kashmir is synonymous with natural beauty wonder.
When the poetic Great Mughal Emperor Shahjahan (who built the Taj Mahal) first laid eyes on the valley of Kashmir, he is believed to have uttered the following couplet in lyrical Persian verse:
“If there’s a Paradise on Earth,
It is this…it is this.”
Kashmir is famous for its picturesque Dal Lakes, legendary Mughal Gardens, pleasant weather, beautiful mountains, and delightful cuisine.
One of India’s most visited honeymoon destinations, Kashmir is perfect for a hill station holiday for families, groups, and solo travellers.
