My love affair with Kashmir started way back on 1982 when I first landed there as a wee toddler. I still remember parts of Pahalgam, Sonemarg and Gulmarg though it was all a bit hazy like a sepia photograph from my father's old trunk.
And then the sad turn of events in the valley crushed all my hopes of visiting it when I was growing up...However, thankfully my dying dreams got a fresh lease of life when I got a project to work with J&K Bank in 2005. Between Nov 05 and March 06 there were 4 trips to the state-on work and hence not much of trekking/backpacking involved. However, some beautiful moments were snatched in between which I shall treasure forever......A short and sweet love affair with this beautiful land.
Omar, Sehar, Javed Bhai, Aashiq bhai......so many beautiful beautiful people....I am truly overwhelmed by your warmth and hospitality shown at every occasion.
- Pros:Beautiful land, beautiful warm and charming people, great food!
- Cons:Security hassles, cannot stay out late in the evening
Best thing about Kashmir is the way it transforms itself through the months of the year and looks so beautiful in every... more travel advice
