If you have not visited the
region of Kashmir, you cannot consider yourself a world traveler.
The area is unique and filled with culture, natural attractions
and some of the most beautiful scenery in the world. Anybody
who considers himself or herself well traveled must include
Kashmir on their travel itinerary. From its long and rich
history to its modern amenities, Kashmir is quickly becoming
a favorite tourist spot for many people.
One of the best things about Kashmir is how varied
it is. Throughout the countryside, visitors to the area have access
to one of the widest ranges of activities. From culturally attractions
to modern festivals, planning the perfect tourist trip to Kashmir
simply means spending a bit of time trying to narrow down the list
There are several spots that cannot be missed for any reason. For
example, Srinagar is worth a trip in and of itself, but visitors
to Srinaar have easy access to some of Kashmir’s most beautiful
lakes like Nagin Lake and Dal Lake. Several of the Mughal Gardens
are nearby as is the famous Shankaracharaya Temple. Many tourists
are attracted to the city itself for its culture and beauty.
Pahalgam is ideal for those interested in a little bit of adventure.
While all of Kashmir is available for adventure seekers, Pahalgam
offers tourists access to white water rafting, Alpine skiing, horse
riding, hiking and fishing.
Sonmarg, or the Golden Meadow,’ is perhaps the best destination
for those interested in the simple beauty of Kashmir. The area is
surrounded by mountains and is simply stunning. A similar area,
Patnitop, offers visitors stunning vistas, which include pine forests
and fresh water springs.
While all of Kashmir
is beautiful, there are several areas that cannot be missed. Anyone
traveling to the area should be sure to include one or more of these
hotspots in their itinerary. Failing to do so means failing to experience
everything that Kashmir has to offer.
