Overview
Things to Do
where TO STAY

For centuries the northern Himalayan state of Jammu and Kashmir has been the ultimate metaphor for natural beauty and wonder in India. Its beauty is invoked by poets, artists, painters and creators.

When the Mughal Emperor Shahjahan—a man of poetic eloquence—first laid eyes on the scenic valley of Kashmir, he is reported to have uttered a now iconic couplet in Persian:

“If there’s a Paradise on Earth,

It is this…it is this.”

The northernmost state of India is one of its most beloved hill stations and also one of the country’s primary honeymoon destinations.

In the scorching months of summer (April-September), it provides much-needed respites to Indians from the lowling plains who find the perfect getaway in this idyllic part of India.

The first sightings of snow, for most Indians (who never get to experience it during much of their lifetime) are often at Kashmir. In winter Jammu and Kashmir becomes the primary destination for snow-viewing and skiing in India.

 This state is famous for its serene rivers, picturesque lakes, scenic mountains, sumptuous cuisine, ancient heritage, temples and hospitality.

We presents you the best luxury tours and trips to this magical realm snuggled in the lap of the mighty Himalayas. Our tours are personalized to your needs and style. We offer flexible tours featuring accommodation at the best Kashmiri luxury and heritage hotels and resorts.

Houseboat Retreat

1

Floating Haven: Luxurious Houseboat Retreat on Dal Lake

The Dal Lake is the heart and soul of the capital city of Kashmir. It is to Srinagar what Lake Pichola is to Udaipur. Life in Srinagar revolves around this serene lake that gives you a splendid view of the mountains of the valleys.

Traditional wooden Gondolas (boats) called Shikara dot its landscape zigzagging on the lake carrying people and goods around. The lake is also famous for its traditional boathouses.

A stay in a luxurious houseboat retreat in the picturesque Dal Lake is one of the quintessential Srinagar experiences.

Peak Marvel: Breathtaking Journey on Gulmarg Gondola

The word Gulmarg comes from two Persian words. ‘Gul’ meaning flowers and ‘Marg’ meaning a meadow. This Meadow of Flowers is located in the Baramulla District of Jammu and Kashmir, only 30 miles from the capital city of Srinagar.

The region is located at a height of 2,650 meters (8,690 ft) above sea level. Gulmarg has been described as the “heartland of winter sports in India.” Due to its snow slopes that are perfect for skiing, Gulmarg is India’s premier destination for winter sports.

Alpine Opulence: Luxurious Sojourn in Pahalgam

Located in the district of Anantnag, the Virgin Valley of Pahalgam is known as the “Valley of Shepherds.” It is a region filled with meadows of flowers and grass, lush green valleys and breathtaking scenery.

Snuggled at a height of 3,900 meters above sea leave, Pahagalm is also the site of the Amarnath Caves (which are considered one of the important Hindu pilgrimage sites in the world). These caves are believed to be the above of none other than LORD SHIVA.

The gorgeous Lidder River that winds its way through the valley is not just a visual delight but also a great site for white-water sports.

Royal Gardens: Enchanting Stroll through Mughal Paradise

If there is one thing that the Mughals loved more than palaces, architecture, great food and poetry, it is lawns and gardens.

Aside from great works of architecture (forts, palaces, mausoleums) one of their greatest legacies in the subcontinent is the sprawling gardens they have left behind, some of which continue to survive to this day.

The Mughal Gardens are the pride of the capital city of Jammu and Kashmir. They are just pure visual delight and great for leisurely walks. Watching a sunrise and a sunset in the gardens is one of the must-do things in Kashmir.

We highly recommend...

Kashmiri Delights: Culinary Extravaganza of Flavors

Kashmir is a foodie’s heaven. Its lip-smacking cuisine oozes textures, aromas and delightful flavors.

The food culture of the region has been highly influenced by centuries of ancient Silk Roads trade, the Mughal Empire and local Kashmiri traditions.

Dishes that we highly recommend are Kashmiri Rajma (a rice and red beans dish served with red gravy made out of a tomato and onions puree), Yakhni Pulao (made from basmati rice, mutton, onions, local herbs and spices) and the ultimate pride of Kashmir called Rogan Josh (a slow-cooked mutton stew made out of a killer combo of deseeded Kashmiri chilies, tender meat, herbs and spices)

Majestic Sonamarg: Scenic Exploration and Alpine Adventures

Sonamarg is a breathtakingly beautiful hill station in the Ganderbal District of Jammu and Kashmir. The word Sonamarg is a compound for two Kashmiri words. “Sona” which means Gold, and “Marg” which means a meadow.

This ‘Meadow of Gold’ is located 80 kilometers (50 miles) from Srinagar and is quite accessible. It is also known as one of the best all-weather hill stations in the state.

Sonamarg used to be an important stopover in the so-called ancient Silk Road s trade and connected Kashmir (and rest of Hindustan) with Tibet and China. An alpine adventure in the Meadow of Gold is one experience that we guarantee that you...
