Immersed in the beauty of nature, with sprawling, misty hills all around, dense pine and deodar forests carrying unknown fragrances with the wind, pristine blue lakes with the cleanest of waters, with oarsmen singing hymns in the Dal Lake, you finally realize there is a paradise on the earth. You open your eyes, and the surroundings would plunge you into a beautiful reverie and you realize there is a paradise on earth and its name is Kashmir. Jammu and Kashmir is a state in northern India, located in the Himalayan mountains.

The diverse landscape of Jammu Kashmir and Ladakh attracts millions of people into the lap of the northernmost part of India. All three of these regions are blessed by nature’s bounty.
