Dal lake Kashmir- SrinagarSet like a jewelled crown on the map of India, Kashmir is a multi-faceted diamond, changing its hues with the seasons - always extravagantly beautiful.

The Mughals aptly called Kashmir ‘Paradise on Earth’ where 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 collectively known as the Mughal Gardens.

Kashmir is a land where myriad holiday ideas are realized. In winter, when snow carpets the mountains, there is skiing, tobogganing, sledge-riding, etc. along the gentle slopes. In spring and summer, the honey-dewed orchards, rippling lakes and blue skies beckon every soul to sample the many delights the mountains and valleys have to offer. Golfing at 2,700 m 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 shikaras and living in gorgeous houseboats are some of the most favored ones.

Elephants in bandipore national parkSrinagar, the picturesque summer capital of Jammu and Kashmir, is at an elevation of 5,200 feet (1,600 meters) and comprises a system of lakes and waterways.

The valley of Kashmir, beautiful with its snow capped mountains and pristine lakes, captivated the Mughals. Mughal formal garden style reached its peak here and of the over seven hundred gardens in the valley, today only the Shalimar Bagh, Nishat Bagh and a few others, survive on the eastern shore of the Dal Lake.

The city has a distinctly Central Asian flavor. The mosques and shrines are among the city's most attractive features and largely define the city's character. The oldest historic remains are of the Sankaracharya temple built in the seventh century.
