Top 4 Places to Visit in Kashmir

Kashmir is a beautiful place situated in the northernmost region of India. People are definitely not joking when they say that Kashmir is Paradise on Earth. Why? Because Kashmir is considered to be one of the most ethereal places on Earth and also known for its picturesque view.

You'll be surrounded by mountains, valleys, greenery and find yourself captivated by its beauty. The best time to visit Kashmir is during the spring season on March until the first week of May. Gardens and parks will be covered with fresh green grass and beautiful flowers. If you love snow then the best time to plan your visit is from December until February.

If you don't know where to go, do not fret! Here are some suggestions for you:

1. Srinagar
  • Houseboat! It won't be a complete experience if you don't stay there. 
  • You can also experience Shikara boat rides. It's a relaxing ride while enjoying the surrounding views around Dal Lake. 
  • If you come for the history, then visiting Mughal Garden is a must! The style of architecture was heavily influenced by the Persians. mughal garden
Beautiful isn't it? Mughal Garden is listed under UNESCO World of Heritage for its exceptional beauty and history.

  • If you'd like to add another place to visit then I would suggest Tulip Garden. 

2. Pahalgam
  • Also known as the Valley of the Shepherds 
  • Saffron Fields. Don't forget to take lots of pictures while you are here!
  • Avantipura Ruins. Amazing place to go for history and architecture lovers alike.
It was said that Raja Avantivarman erected two majestic and magnificent temples, one dedicated to Lord Vishnu called Avantiswamin and the other dedicated to Lord Shiva called Avantiswaram. Interesting right?

  • Surround yourself with nature and greenery in Pine Forest. There's also a quaint village nestled at the banks of Lidder River. Lidder River is also a famous spot for trout fishing 
3. Gulmarg
  • Snow, snow, and more snow! The best place for skiing. There's even a gondola service to the peak. Relax and enjoy the view.
There are two phases of Gondola rides that you can choose from. You can choose which phase you would like to go: 

Phase 1: Gulmarg to Kungdoor
Phase 2: Kungdoor to Aparwath 

Normally travelers would choose Phase 1 only. Phase 2 is optional because you would need to go through Phase 1 first, before reaching Phase 2.

Happy skiing guys! 

4. Sonmarg
  • Visit Thajiwas Glacier while you are here and immerse yourself in the picturesque view

Paradise on Earth is definitely a worthy title for Kashmir.
