honeymoon in kasmir - paradise on earth

Duration - 05 Nights / 06 Days
Destination: Srinagar-Gulmarg-Sonmarg-Pahalgam

Honeymoon in Kashmir - If there is a paradise on earth, it is here, it is here, it is here, exclaimed the Mughal emperor Jahangir, a feeling echoed by any visitor to the Kashmir Valley. Lying within the folds of the Himalayas, the Kashmir Valley is India's most prized destination. Accessible by air or road, Srinagar lies in the heart of the valley. Beautiful and complete in itself, Srinagar serves as the base for tourists to venture into the region's splendid locations fringing the valley. At the core of the city is the tranquil Dal Lake, a home and source of livelihood to many. While a boat cruise through the Lake is a must-do for honeymooners, you can even put up on a houseboat and spend leisurely hours admiring the astounding views from the deck.

Known for its glorious gardens, the Chesmashahi, Nishat and Shalimar Gardens built by the Mughal Emperors are a riot of color amidst terraced lawns and cascading fountains.

One-day trips to Gulmarg, famous for its world-class skiing facilities, Pahalgam and Sonamarg take you through alpine slopes and frothy, white streams in a wonderful amalgam of green, blue, white and vivid shades of blossoms. The summer months between May to September are perfect for leisurely walks, pony rides, golfing or angling in the white waters of the stream that tumbles through Pahalgam. Sonamarg or the 'meadow of gold' can be your base for a trek to the lakes of Vishansar, Kishansar, Gadsar, Satsar and Gangabal.

Sonamarg is also along the road to Ladakh, which must be visited if you have the passion for thrill and adventure. The Ladakh region is on tortuously high altitudes reaching 19,700 ft on an average, and has trek routes through bare slopes and lonely monasteries.
