Jammu and Kashmir - India's "Switzerland of the East"
Jammu and Kashmir is one of the most beautiful places on earth. It is
the land of dreams where heavenly experiences are stored beyond
imagination. This majestic land has innumerable colors of joy in the
form of sparkling rivers, sleepy lakes, startling gardens, regal chinar
trees, magnificent temples and mosques, famous historical sites and
amazing flora and fauna. It is simply perfection beyond this world.
This picturesque state dazzles like a diamond whenever the sunshine
gently caresses its beautiful body.
This lovely state is the northernmost
state of India. It appears like a jeweled crown on the map of India.
The abundance of natural beauty has earned the state the nick name
of 'Switzerland of the East'. It is mesmerizing to see how this
endless beauty never fails to captivate the viewers with its changing
scenes from dazzling white snow in the winter to blooming fragrance in
the spring. This is the place where time loves to stand still to adore
pristine beauty that is in fact beyond expression. Come and explore the
richness of the state and experience the bliss that you have been
longing for so long.
If we go back in history, the mughals rightly called this place
"paradise on earth". The scenic and cool environment of Kashmir
captivated them so much that they laid the foundation of Srinagar's
many formal, waterfront gardens, now collectively known as the Mughal
Gardens. The present is still beautiful. Jammu and Kashmir is rich in
flora and fauna. In Jammu, the flora ranges from the thorn bush type of
the arid plain to the temperate and alpine flora of the higher
altitudes. Of the broad leaf trees there are maple, horse chest nuts,
silver fir etc. At the higher altitudes there are birch, rhododendron,
Berbers and a large number of herbal plants.
Jammu and Kashmir is famous for its handicrafts. If you are a lover of
handicrafts, then Kashmir is the place to be in. A carpet is a life
long investment because it may well be the single most expensive
purchase during your visit. Kashmiri carpets are world renowned for two
things - they are hand made and they are always knotted, never tufted.
Here you can shop for pure wool shawls called ruffal which have
different counts of wools. Shawls mixed with other fibres like cotton
and other cotton derivatives are far cheaper. On the other hand, woolen
shawls mixed with pashmina will be far more expensive.
The ideal month to visit Kashmir is September where green turns
to gold and then to russet and red. Enjoy memorable boat ride in the
picturesque Dal lake of Srinagar. Once you are in Kashmir don't forget
to savor the tasty food of this place. This state is well connected by
road, rail and air. If you are an adventurous person, then you should
come for trekking in the months of April to November.
