“One day these tall mountains, the cold winds, the occasional stray window that opened onto the road lined with orange autumn leaves stopped being strangers, it became home.”
Kashmir is a place that evokes a sense of a tragic, yet haunting beauty. Conflict and tragedy may have left its lingering traces on Kashmir, but none of it has managed to take away from its beauty. The mountains, the roads, the houses, the food, the charm of Kashmir is hard to resist, and rightfully so. One only needs to visit Kashmir in the winter, when the entire place is enveloped in a veil of snow to understand what true beauty is like, beauty that evokes art and poetry. And what better way to understand this beauty, than Musafir.com’s Kashmir holiday packages.
Kashmir is located in the northernmost part of the country. The famous and the mighty Himalayan range can be viewed from the state of Jammu and Kashmir.
