Kashmir Trip | Go Adventure


Gar Firdaus bar-rue Zaminasthaminasto, haminasto, haminast!  (If there be Paradise on Earth, it is here, it is here)This was the beautiful description of Kashmir done by Amir Khusro the famous 14th Century Poet of India. This beautiful valley in the union territory of Jammu and Kashmir is separated from

Jammu by PirPanjal Mountains, to be precise by Nehru Tunnel. Once you cross the Nehru Tunnel you enter a mesmerizing nature which transfers you to a new world that is largely untouched by the hustle-bustle of the urban cities of India. The valley of Kashmir offers a true paradise-like experience, this valley is surrounded by steep mountainous terrain, massive rivers, and many more. Known around the world for its unparallel landscapes, the valley is located 300 km away from Jammu. Situated in the Himalayas, the clear blue skies reveal the snow-capped peaks that give birth to the streams and rivers. Home to native flora like pine, deodar, and chinar, it is a memory of a lifetime to preserve as you glide on a Shikara (Boat) in Dal Lake. The valley delights you with multi hues of nature, communicated through lush green slopes, tender meadows, and prairie of vibrant flowers.
