Hi Everyone, 🙂
Our Kashmir trip may be over but the hangover is still there. We may have tried to capture the essence of Kashmir through our photos but there is a certain magic that you’d experience only when you go there. 🙂
I am sharing a long day adventure with you guys.
It started with a 6 am flower market shikara ride on Dal Lake. The view of misty mountains, the sound of the water from rowing the boat, cap of kahwa cupped in our hands, and clear cool air – it was beyond perfect. The trip on the mystical Dal Lake had started. We were on a morning shopping trip – shopping flowers, picking up saffron and checking out jewels.
The Shikara guy kept rowing and dropped us to the Lalit Hotel. We had gone there for the breakfast. Lalit is surrounded by the endless green lawns and of corse a mountain range. Quick brekky and kahwa break and we started on a one hour drive to Gulmarg.
Our driver mentioned that if we didn’t go to Gulmarg* or Pahelgam, our trip to Kashmir would be incomplete. Well! his words were true as soon as we started getting closer to Gulmarg. We did a cable car ‘adventure’ there and it was damn cary..at least for me. 😛 We had a great lunch at the Khyber Hotel, where we plan to go in winters. Let’s see. Fingers crossed. 🙂
Sharing some stunning pics Sanjeev took during the trip. Also , there is a little video we made during our trip. Still learning but hope you like it. 🙂
Thank you so much for being on this Kashmir trip with us. I think you guys make it truly special with all your lovely comments. Mwaaah!!
*If you are going to Gulmarg, do book the gondola rides in advance. And leave early morning.
