If you want to capture some most picturesque views of Snow capped Himalayas as well as play in ice, do visit Sonmarg you can’t miss it for anything on this earth. Please carry heavy woollens and boots to this place or they are available there on rent. Good food is available everywhere in Kashmir, so I promise the goody in you will always feel satiated. Rent a horse if you find trekking in snow difficult.
You can’t miss the gondola ride and skiing in beautiful Gulmarg at any cost. They are one of the biggest tourist attraction of Kashmir. We had tons of fun here and also got caught in a severe storm on our way back with the Gondola. Life time experiences are often of this stature and in all the adrenaline rush we loved them.
I loved the green stretches of Pahalgam the most and I can still feel the breeze of cool air caressing my tresses in this beautiful town of Kashmir pretty near to Srinagar. You can shop lovely souvenirs from here as well enjoy the Overa Aru Wildlife Centuries and many other lovely rivers and adjacent valleys.
