The Valley of Kashmir, is a part of the Indian state of Jammu & Kashmir that rises in tiers from the plains to encompass mountainous terrain, high altitude valleys and plateaus.


The Valley of Kashmir, is a part of the Indian state of Jammu & Kashmir that rises in tiers from the plains to encompass mountainous terrain, high altitude valleys and plateaus. Many things: its landscape, a lush green valley and rolling wooded uplands ringed by snowcapped mountains, crisscrossed by rivers and studded with lakes; Its rich profusion of trees and flowers and fruits--- the Himalayan cedar, the Chinars, the ramrod straight poplars, the pale pink foam of almond blossoms in spring, lotuses budding in the late summer heat, jewel like cherries glowing in wooden boxes, and in autumn, saffron-yielding crocuses in the plateaus of Pampore stretching purple as far as the eye can see.

Favourite spots:
EXCURSIONS Achabal: 58 km via Anantnag, The waters of Achhabal Nag flow in a powerful stream, at an altitude of 1667 meters. Dachigam:’ 21 km, Wildlife Sanctuary National Park.

Pahalgam: 96 km,Away from the broad expanses of the central valley with Srinagar at its heart, lies the Lidder Valley with the hill resort of Pahalgam at its upper end, the base for the long and adous trek to the holy Hindu shrine of Amarnath Cave, a pilgrimage that attracts lacs of devotees each year. Pampore: Kashmir's saffron growing belt. Sonamarg:83 km, Almost diagonally across the Valley lies Sonamarg, the ‘Meadow Of Gold’, where the Sindh River rushes headlong through a gorge.

You start really well but then seem to lose interest. It's often a good idea to keep it unpublished for a bit am
nd think what you can add.
