In the seventeenth century the Mughal emperor Jahangir set his eyes on the valley of Kashmir while living in a house-boat on the mesmerizing Dal Lake and said, “Gar firdaus, ruhe zamin ast, hamin asto, hamin asto, hamin asto.” What Jahangir meant was that if there is ever a heaven on earth, it’s here, it’s here, it’s here. And he certainly wasn’t exaggerating.
About Jammu & Kashmir
Set like a jewelled crown on the map of India, Kashmir is a multi-faceted diamond, changing its hues with the seasons. Always extravagantly beautiful. Two major Himalayan ranges, the Great Himalayan Range and the Pir Panjal, surround the landscape from the north and south respectively. They are the source of great rivers, which flow down into the valleys, forested with orchards and decorated by lily laden lakes. The Mughals aptly called Kashmir ‘Paradise on Earth’ when they journeyed across the hot plains of India, to the valley’s cool environs in summer. Here they laid, with great love and care, Srinagar’s many formal, waterfront gardens. Now they are collectively known as the Mughal Gardens. Anecdotes of four and five centuries ago describe their love for these gardens, and the rivalries that centred around their ownership.They also patronized the development of art & craft among the people of Kashmir, leaving behind a heritage of exquisite craftmanship among people and making the handicrafts of the land prized gifts all over the world.
Holidaying in Kashmir
Kashmir is a land where myriad holiday ideas are realised.In winter, when snow carpets the mountains, there is skiing, tobogganing, sledge-riding, etc. along the gentle slopes. In spring and summer, the honey-dew orchards, rippling lakes and blue skies beckon every soul to sample the many delights the mountains and valleys have to offer. Golfing at 2,700m above the sea, water-skiing in the lakes and angling for prized rainbow trout, or simply drifting down the willow fringed alleys of lakes in a shikara and living in gorgeous houseboats are some of the most favoured ones.
