Visit to Kashmir - AVB0078637

Kashmir was always in my mind and this time I got the opportunity with an exciting deal of Antilog Vacations. Kashmir is truly a heaven on earth, which I can describe with the help of my experience.

We booked a Meadows & Mountain package as a couple from Antilog Vacations. After reaching Srinagar airport at around 4 pm, we were assisted by Antilog Vacations representative and transferred for a beautiful houseboat stay at Nigeen Lake. After check-in, we were welcomed with a traditional drink Kahwa. In the evening, we enjoyed a Shikara ride on Nigeen Lake because the city doesn't have nightlife. We spend our night in the beautiful carved houseboat with under a good management of dedicated staff.

Some tourists preferred Dal Lake houseboat stay due to the close proximity of the market but we gave priority to scenic and less crowded stay of Nigeen Lake. Snow cladded mountains, cool breeze and early morning view, everything was breathtaking and after the breakfast, we proceeded towards Pahalgam in a pre-booked cab. During this journey, we covered the scenic views of Saffron fields, apple valleys, mountains and a complete movie like romantic view. We also captured few memorable moments in our camera. We reached there by afternoon and checked into Hotel Himalaya House and greeted by the excellent services of hotel staff.

After a few relaxing hours, we covered the distance up to Chandanwari and witnessed the beautiful moment of snowfall. In the evening, we enjoyed shopping and went back to the hotel. In the next day morning, we were in the wait of some suitable weather and in around 12 PM, we left the hotel and picked the route of Srinagar. After some handicraft, woolens and leather products shopping, we left the place and further transferred for Gulmarg.

It was the most scenic place which I've ever been visited in my life. The place was really covered with picturesque amazing beauty. There were many honeymooner couples to enjoy the breathtaking site. Even, I can't describe the view of such pleasing nature from the window of my hotel. In the next morning, we went to Gondola site as per the plan fixed by our tour operator (Antilog Vacations). It was an ultimate experience to actually view the snow-covered valley from a great height. This place has several activities for tourists and professionals from skiing, snow biking up to sledge riding.

We spend our last day of tour in a houseboat in Srinagar and covered the famous attractions like Hazratbal Dargah, Shalimar Garden, Mughal Garden, Tulip garden and along the wonderful shopping experience at Polo view market and lal chowk. And finally, we prepared ourself to leave this heaven and boarded our flight from Srinagar airport. A great thanks to Antilog Vacations services who helped us to collect such lifetime memories.

Again Thanks for a marvellous visit!
