Situated in the northern part of India, Jammu & Kashmir is the essence of everything that is Indian-its culture, history, tradition, people, and natural splendor. Be it to escape from the scorching summer of the Indian plains, an extended family vacation, romantic honeymoon or adventure and fun with friends, Jammu and Kashmir, famed as the crown of India, is one of the most sought-after destinations in India. They are the source of great rivers, which flow down into the valleys, forested with orchards and decorated by lily-laden lakes.
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. Known as ‘Paradise on Earth’, Jammu and Kashmir is one of India’s most favoured tourist destinations. The state is popular for its picturesque beauty, the pashmina shawls and the many blue lakes that dot the Himalayan terrain here. The state is a religious amalgamation with natives practicing Islam, Buddhism, and Hinduism.
