My trip to Kashmir

 Hi All, I am sharing my experience about my trip to Kashmir, India. Me and My wife were planning to go on a vacation in the month of November and Kashmir was our first choice. The journey started from 30th November 2009 and ended on 10th of December. We enjoyed alot of things over there and now has become the best Memorable Journey for me. Amritsar, Katra, Pehelgam, Srinagar, Jammu, Delhi were the place we visited during this journey.


Amritsar-Katra-Pehelgam


We reached Amritsar on 01st of Dec and visited The Golden temple and Wagha border on the same day. While coming back from Wagha border we had a glass of Lassi and trust me, its difficult for me finish even 2/3 of the glass. Next day we left for Katra to visit the Vaishno Devi temple which is approx 16km away from the starting point. It took 6 hours for us to reach from Amritsar to Katra. We left for the temple in the night at 10pm and reached at 11 am in the morning. The whole day was spent at the katra for resting and enjoying the site seeing of Katra. As per the schedule we left for Srinagar but since it is very far from Katra we had to halt at Pehelgam for a night and left early morning next day for Srinagar.

Srinagar (Shankar Acharaya Mandir/Gulmarg/Sonmarg/Mughal Garden/Srinagar)


I was very happy to see the Dal lake as have heard alot about it from my friends. We halted in the boat house for 3 days and we didn't even felt that we are staying in the boat. During the stay in Srinagar we had visited Shankar Acharaya temple and Gulmarg on day 1 of Srinagar. On Day 2 we had been to Sonmarg and in the evening we headed towards the Market. Day 3 was when we visited the Mughal Garden and other places of Srinagar. Apart from the site seeing the best thing i liked was the security provided by the government. While visiting the places, we had seen atleast 2 military people at every 100 meters distance of Srinagar. It is a very secured place as there are Cops and Military people to help you.

Jammu-Delhi

We left for Jammu next day as we had a ticket from Jammu to reach Delhi - capital of India. We spent one day in Jammu in the hotel as we were tired of the 8 hours or travelling in the car. Next day we boarded a train from Jammu Station for Delhi. The coach was already full by all the military men as many of them were heading towards their home for vacation or long leave. Delhi is one of the most popular metropolis in India with a population of approx 15 million. I visited famous places like Lal kila, President house, Parliament, Mahatma Gandhi Udyaan, Karol baugh and last but not the least the very known place in the country i.e. Chandani Chowk.

I really feel that one should visit Srinagar, Pehelgam, Pathankot and Vaishno devi atleast once in every 2 years to get mental peace and to explore such places. I and my wife enjoyed the trip alot. All thanks to my wife as she was the one who suggested/ planned this trip. Also we are planning to go on a trip next year but still searching for the best destination/place in India.
