The State of Kashmir presents the most scenic views of the splendour of the Himalayas. While the Kashmir Valley is green, picturesque and Muslim dominated, on the west is Ladakh, with its rugged, raw treeless landscape with boundless Buddhist monasteries.
WONDER VALLEYS (5D/4N) Discover the land of green, blue and white… spotted with flowers of all varieties! Kashmir is the most scenic region of nature and the best time to visit is Mar-Oct.
We will start with sightseeing in Delhi and fly to Srinagar (2 hrs) and stay in an exclusive elegant houseboat on Nagin lake; an enchanting, serene, calm, spacious water body north of Dal lake. Day 2 we’d drive to Gulmarg (2 hrs); the Meadow of Flowers and highest 18-hole golf course of the world. A day-trip to Pahalgam (4 hrs); the Valley of Shepherds via old Srinagar, Saffron fields, and Awantipura ruins would take us to a pine forest along Lidder River for a relaxed lunch and pony ride. And finally the experience of Srinagar would be complete with trips to the Mughal Gardens, Nishat Bagh and Shalimar Bagh, besides handicraft-making (carpets or paper machie or garments) and shopping at lal chowk, before flying back to Delhi.
LADAAAHKH (7D/6N) Get to the top of the world physically, emotionally and spiritually. The time is right for a few summer months Apr-Aug… and then it freezes over!
What will we cover?
With a day’s sightseeing in Delhi, we board the flight to Leh (1.5 hrs) and acclimatize to high-altitude for the next 24 hours… lying flat on a bed. On day 3, we are set to make the climb further up, in a 4×4 across awesome terrain of sheer rocky mountain. Traversing the Khardongla Pass and Changla Pass we drive up to the world’s highest motorable roads at 16,000 feet, through monasteries, rivers and a lot of fun. The Pangdong lake at the Indo-China border presents surreal magic that you will cherish for life.
