SNOWY WONDERS OF KASHMIR!
Dates: Feb 12th - 18th, 2023
Feb 12th, Sunday: Land at Srinagar airport by or before 12pm and then board the magic bus to make way to Pahalgam! Get to know your new gang of friends as we head to the scenic valley where Lidder river gushes kissing the pine trees to the wooden huts. En route stop at Pampore bat factory to see how the world famous bats are made. Freshen up and take a late evening walk to gaze at your first sight of Kashmir! O/N Pahalgam
Feb 13th, Monday: Today, you are going to enter a postcard! We are headed to Betaab Valley – named so after the hit 90s Bollywood film shot here. Shall we do a happy dance on the bridge? Shall we challenge each other to a game of cricket? Unleash your inner child, your vacation has begun! Post lunch, we shall visit Chandanwari. The valley unfolds to paint the perfect scenery. And, who knows we could return back sitting on top of the car?! 😉 O/N Pahalgam
Feb 14th, Tuesday: It wouldn’t be a trip to Pahalgam without a visit to Aru Valley, would it? A protected wildlife sanctuary, this location offers views of tall towering peaks and dense forests. Be prepared to throw on your adventurous shoes as we’re going to trek, baby! What’s prettier than a view is the fulfilling feeling of making your way to it. We’ll cross horses and shepherds, have conversations and sing songs as we reach the top for a hilly picnic. O/N Pahalgam
Feb 15th, Wednesday: This morning you’re going to wake up beaming because we’re headed to Gulmarg! And, what’s a road trip without singing our hearts out, revealing our embarrassing playlists and anecdotes as we arrive at Kashmir’s crowned jewel. Who’s ready to have a snow fight with their new friends? Time to get, set, attack! O/N Gulmarg
Feb 16th, Thursday: This is undoubtedly one of the most exciting days of the trip, we’re going to watch the majestic Apharwat Peak at a height of 14,403 ft.! We’re going to take the longest gondola ride in Asia (till the first point), a suspended cable car that lets your eyes gleam over a town laid in white snow below you. Take a ski lesson, enjoy a snowmobile ride or taste the thrill of snow cycling! Adventure’s calling and we must go! O/N Gulmarg
Feb 17th, Friday: Some days are unforgettable. Such as the day you live on a houseboat! (a Migrant Musings & Co. special). Yes, we are headed to Srinagar. Quickly freshen up as a magical sunset shall be etched onto our memories forever as we take a shikhara ride at Dal Lake. Get yourself a souvenir to take a memory back home at the floating market, sink into a cup of kahwa, ahh feel that Kashmiri winter air hug you. At night we shall sink into the Kashmiri way of life by residing on an authentic houseboat on the offbeat Nigeen Lake – a semi-frozen lake with mist hugging it. Come evening, let’s have a maddd last night! O/N Srinagar. O/N Srinagar
Feb 18th, Saturday: Hugs and goodbyes until we meet again. Fly out of Srinagar airport any time after 9am.
