Set like a jeweled crown on the map of
India, Kashmir - the paradise on this earth,
changes its many faceted character with
the seasons. The valley is always extravagantly
beautiful with three Himalayan ranges -
Karakoram, Zanaskar and Pir Panjal that
frame the landscape from northwest to northeast.
These mountain ranges are the birthplace
of great rivers that flow through the Kashmir
The picture of Srinagar - the capital of
J&K, is complete with images like, deep
green rice fields, river bridges, blooming
gardens, lakes rimmed by houseboats, business
center and holiday resorts.
Every season in Srinagar offers new vistas
to this city of great antiquity. Spring
brings life into the frozen world and spreads
fragrance of a million flowers in the air.
Summer heightens the effect and autumn is
poignant in its colors of warm introspection.
Winter brings with it snow and sometimes
freezes the Dal Lake and turns the aroma
of the atmosphere with the promise of warmth
The river Jhelum and the Dal and Nagin
lakes dominate Srinagar and its life and
activities. There are the lush wild gardens
of lotus and water lily flower amidst bustling
lanes. By the lakeside, you can see the
gardens of the Mughals in patterned beauty.
Kashmiri, Urdu, Hindi, and English, are
the principle languages spoken in Kashmir.
March to October is the best time to visit
this place. Every sort of vegetarian and
non-vegetarian food is available in multiple
cuisine restaurants that suit every budget
and taste. Restaurants of all hues and shades
are available in Kashmir. The average temperature
ranges from 10 to 30 degrees Celsius in
summer and low in winter. As far as clothing
is concerned, Light/Medium woolens in summers
