A few trips to Srinagar...

Back from another tv assignment in Kashmir.

This time it was something less political. Strange as that may sound for the region... It was about cricket, and the Indian teams much awaited tour across the border in March... We managed to visit some interesting locations too- the border area between India and Pakistan - or the LOC as its better known.

Theres content waiting to be uploaded-updated from my three trips to the region, but i`ve been busy travelling. Will be doing it by and by.

The Kashmir valley is one of three regions of the state of Jammu and Kashmir. Ladakh and Jammu bieng the others.

.
Kashmir has, in the past, been referred to as `the most dangerous place in the world'. Perhaps there is some truth to that, but there is no doubting the beauty of this amazing place.

However, the recent past the valley has seen a much more peaceful and stable scenario, and there have been many tourists returning. Kashmir is finding favour gradually, and once again, as one of India's top tourist destinations...

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:incredibly beautiful and tourism is back!
  • Cons:under the shadow of a seperatist movement and the resulting unstability
  • In a nutshell:lots of places waiting to be rediscovered... few tourists can be a good thing too?

    As usual, you offer a unique perspective of the world... awe-inspiring photography, great tips (spacious, floating accommodations at a bargain price), and moving tales (machine guns in the midst of beauty, martyrs...)
