Pahalgam

Jammu & Kashmir state known for its lush green valleys, glens, meadows, glistening streams and brooks is totally different than the arid cold desert landscape of the Ladakh region which makes up is eastern part. While Kashmir has a distinctively Muslim population, Ladakh's culture is entirely Buddhist. Cultures and traditions vary in these two regions as does the terrain. While Kashmir is called the Paradise on Earth, Ladakh is called the Moonland. Kashmir is truly nature at its most glorious. Here the alpine meadows of Gulmarg, Tangmarg and Yusmarg along with the beautiful slopes of Pahalgam are matchless in beauty. The meadows and slopes of Pahalgam are soothing to the eye in different shades of brilliant and pastel greens. Srinagar is dominated by the extensive Dal Lake that often freezes over in winter; immaculately landscaped gardens first designed by the Mughals; serene mosques and a number of restaurants offering the exotic Kashmiri cuisine that is matchless in taste and subtle flavours besides fine hotels and the inimitable houseboats peculiar only to Kashmir. The arts and crafts of Kashmir are also famous for their fine intricate work. Shawls, Papeir Mache products, embroidered cloth, the finest and softest of shawls and willow baskets are some of the products on offer to the visitor. Ladakh on the other hand is known for its metal work and wool products made of Yak and goat wool, copper and silver jewellery inlaid with semi precious stones like turquoise, coral and pearl. Exquisite thangka paintings done on silk cloth are another speciality among the Ladakhi artists. The entire state presents a delightful mix of cultures, people and breathtaking landscapes.
