MOUNTAIN WONDERS OF : KASHMIR
Dates: DEC 25th - JAN 1st (NEW YEAR!)
There is a reason why Kashmir has poems written on it, why sonnets of love are sung on it, why the land is said to be magical. Imagine pine trees with specs of snow covering them, imagine the Lidder River gushing with all its might, imagine pine cones fallen on the ground. Everywhere you look you see that Mother Nature is an artist. We’ll be visiting the coveted town of Gulmarg.
Take a ride on Asia’s longest gondola ride! Get to stare out at a scenic valley. Make way to Pahalgam where you believe you have entered movie sets yourself. There’s a slice of stream, rows of trees running wild and snow kissing tall towering mountains.
Time to make a snowman! last but not the least is the olden era charm with a sunset ride on the pretty Dal Lake. Shop away to take home some Kashmiri goodies. Sprawling shawls to paper match boxes, all the while talking to making memories over cups of kahwa
Dec 25th, Monday: Land at Srinagar airport by or before 12pm and then board the magic bus for
