About Kashmir :

Through the ages it has remained another name for paradise. A dream garden, painted a new each season never fading in its compelling beauty throughout the year. Spring comes in gentle pastel shades-pink, blue and white. And then summer. Slowly brightening hills and valleys. A profusion of sunny flowers. The deep mellow richness of red gold autumn turning the trees to fire. And then suddenly it is winter. Clean, white and hushed, coloured only by snow revellers on the world-famous ski slopes of Gulmarg. Different times of the year. But always beautiful. That's Kashmir.

Gulmarg : Gulmarg Meadow of Flowers, 56km north –west of Srinagar, is a lush green valley and one of the loveliest resorts in the uplands. A poplar-lined highway runs from Srinagar for 38 km to Tangmarg. From here, a winding road passes through majestic, pine covered terrain, ending at the valley.

Here, encircled by fir and pine covered slopes, the 3.5 km long, 1 km wide meadow nestles, offering a synthesis of exciting outdoor activities and a serenely natural ambience. Every season brings a new dimension of beauty to Gulmarg. From the soft, pastel shades of spring, the colours deepen into the vibrant hues of summer. The entire valley is carpeted with wild flowers, blooming in a riot of colours. This is a naturalist's wonderland, and it is on record that the Emperor Jahangir once collected 21 varieties of flowers in this little valley!

Through the summer and well into the autumn, Gulmarg is a magnetic attraction for golfers from all over the world. The world's highest, 18-hole green golf course is at Gulmarg, its course recently relaid according to international specifications by Peter Thompson. The challenge of the game played in this magnificent Himalayan terrain is an irresistible lure for all golf enthusiasts.

The flower carpeted slopes of summer give way to the mantle of snow in winter, turning Gulmarg into a gay winter sports resort. For the first-timers, expert guidance is available from trained instructors of the Indian Institute of Skiing and Mountaineering, while seasoned skiers can go cross country, mountain skiimg, tobogganing and sledding.

The valley is the base for excursions to some lovely little resorts in the region. A large number of well appointed and independent cottages can be hired, if booked in advance.

Pahalgam : The Lidder river runs through the Pahalgam, in a rushing grey-green torrent, foam-alecked, breaking in curling waves against the boulders that lie in its path. Its sound is as eternal as the whisper of wind through pine and fir, its force primaeval in its untamed splendour.

Long before this little village, 96 km east of Srinagar, 2400 metres above sea level, became the popular holiday resort it is today, it was the preserve of nomadic shepherds. Its rugged charm has remained unspoilt by progress, while a bustling main street and its wide range of tented camps, hotels, and lodges have established it as a favourite holiday resort.

Pahalgam spreads along the banks of the Lidder, which is the focal point of interest to the angler. The trout fisherman's delight, the Lidder is divided onto three fishing beats between Mattan and Pahalgam, and the trout are so thick that even the first time fisherman can land a good catch.

Pahalgam is perhaps best known as the take-off point for treks into the surrounding mountains. The resort is well geared to meet the demands of onward going trekkers and camping equipment is readily available, as are ponies and porters. Walking the Lidder valley is scenically most rewarding, through forests of virgin pine, fording crystal-clear mountain streams and through meadows of wild-flowers, higher up the valley.

Popular treks from Pahalgam are to the Kolahoi Glacier via Aru, Satlanjan and Dudsar Lake, and to the high altitude lakes that dot the meadowland and mountain ridges between Pahalgam ang Sonamarg

Sonmarg : Somewhere in the valley, says legend, is a well whose water has the magic property of turning any substance into gold. This is Sonamarg – Meadow of Gold – a quiet valley, carved by the river Sindh, circled by still lakes and jagged, awesome glaciers.

At an altitude of 3000 metres, 80 km north-east of Srinagar, the road that turns to Sonamarg is the beginning of the enchanted journey into a natural wonderland. The road that initially winds under the shadow of the mountains, crosses the Sindh at Wayil, 27 km from Srinagar, where the valley widens, pushing the mountains back. Onward, past Kangam and Gund the road runs, through peaceful pastoral land, the snowclad Harmukh range etched against the deep blue of the Himalayan sky. A steep rise, and it enters the meadow of Sonamarg.

Surounded by mountains upto 5300 m high, the valley is divided by a spur of the Thajiwas range. Flower carpeted Sonamarg lies on one side, drained by the Sindh which has its source in the glaciers of the Amarnath range. Meandering through the valley, the river is a fine fishing preserve, abounding as it does in trout and mahseer.

From Sonamarg, trekking routes lead to the Himalayan lakes of Vishansar (4084 msl), Krishnasar (3810 msl) and Gangabal (3658 msl). Other lakes in the region are Gadsar, stocked with snowtrout and Satsar, glacier-fed and surrounded by banks of alpine flowers.

A close by excursion is to Baltal, 15 km north of Sonamarg. This little valley lies at the foot of the Zojila, only a day's journey away from the sacred cave of Amarnath. Trekkers can also reach the starkly splendid roof-top of the world – Leh, by crossing over the Zijila Pass

Verinag : One of the largest springs in India, Verinag, which lies in the Kothar district, is 78 km south-east of Srinagar via Anantnag, and is easily accessible through a by pass from the Jammu – Srinagar high way.

Named after Nila Nag, the son of the wise saint, Kashyap Rishi, who reclaimed the Kashmir valley, the original shape of this spring was in the circular form of a kund. In 1620, the Emperor Jahangir had the shape changed into the traditional Mughal octagonal. The spring, which has a circumference of 80m in enclosed today by a brick wall under which are vaults. These lake – like waters have a limpid clarity in which the verdant surroundings of pine trees are mirrored. Fish swim in the cool depths and this picturesque setting that so captivated the Mughal emperors has lost none of its pastoral charm over the centuries. The lawns around the spring are a beautifully manicured green, and banks of massed flowers add splashes of colour to this symphony of greens and browns.

A Shaivite shrine just outside the complex draws pilgrims every year, who come for a ritual dip in the spring of the first day of the year according to the lunar Hindu calendar.

Some 2 km away is Veravurthur, supposed to be the source of the Jhelum. The waters of the many nearby springs, called collectively, Sapta Rishi, have their confluence at Sangam, where people bathe on festival days. The birth of the river is celebrated annually with a fair.

This complex has well appointed rooms, for which advance booking is necessary

Kokernag :The great Mughal historian, Abul Fazl, has chronicled for posterity the benefits of the sweet water spring of Kokernag. This beneficient gift of nature is still regarded as having extraordinary healing powers and the sick are brought here for treatment by its waters and solitude. Kokernag is also known therefore, and most aptly, as Papashudan Nag or sin-cleansing spring.

Kokernag, which lies 79 km from Srinagar, has as its setting, at an altitude of 2012 metres, a botanical and a rose garden, where a myriad varieties of flowers and shrubs perfume the air. The spring gushes out of the base of a thickly wooded hill from where it separates into channels which bear an uncanny resemblance to the claw-foot of a hen, hence its name.

Kokernag, whether it is to drink of its curative waters or breathe in the fragrance and quiet beauty of its gardens, remains one of the loveliest of all the springs in this verdant valley. Accommodation is available at well furnished cottages and rooms at reasonable rates. Excursions can be made to Daksum, Achhabal, and Verinag.
