Kashmir is a multi-faceted diamond set like a jewel on the map of India. It is famous for its four distinctive seasons, each with its own peculiar character and charm. In summer the whole valley turns into varying shades of green. In autumn the green shades turn gold. Watching snow covered landscapes from the windows of a heated room is a joy that cannot be described but only experienced.
The most distinctive feature of Srinagar is Dal Lake. Dal has a unique life of its own with floating vegetable gardens. The best way to explore Dal is on a Shikara ride.
Between Dal and Zabarwan mountain range overlooking the lake are the famous Mughal Gardens, Nishat, Shalimar, Cheshmashahi with terraced lawns, cascading fountains and bright flower beds. Srinagar has world class Royal Spring Golf Course.
