Solo journey to Jammu and Kashmir
If you're going on a solo trip to Jammu and Kashmir it is very important to plan it well and be ready for any problems that might come up.
Kashmir, the gem of India, we can travel anywhere but the peace of visiting our mini Switzerland is at another level and if we are doing it independently then happiness is always in the Sky nine. Kashmir has always been a sensational point in political views but this is not only the identification of Kashmir. Kashmir is very safe while speaking about tourists. Women are safer in my state and this is what the report also says. Kashmir is known for its unmissable beauty and hidden gems.
You will come across pristine rivers, snow-capped sky touching mountains, and you will enjoy the birthplaces of many rivers, and long stretches of meadows. You will observe the difference in vegetation and wildlife. Pines, deodar and other high-altitude trees will be there. If you visit in summer there are so many fun activities you will enjoy there and there are a lot more to discover in summer. Jannat- e- Kashmir where you will lose your soul forever, it is the real heaven on earth. You will enjoy cable car rides, skiing experiences, trekking, and many traditional and local habits.
You can try Chadar Trek, which is also in Kashmir.
Speciality of Kashmir
There are many special places counting from the most visited one, to the least discovered one but all are unique in their way like you cannot experience houseboats anywhere rather than Dal lake. To experience peace and silence you have to visit Gurez valley. It is the untouched beauty of Kashmir. Likewise, if you want to enjoy the last stretch of India you can visit tulail valley. While travelling to these parts you will come across different farming practices and pastures.
Sightseeing in Srinagar
On the first day, one must travel around the city to know it better. Here you can travel to Pari Mahal, known for the majestic Islamic architecture of the 1700 century. The Shalimar bagh vibe over there would be very calming. You can also visit the Nishat bagh, the botanical garden and Hazrat Bal. This would be a great start for your beautiful vacation.
Gulmarg if love falls in the love of charming places and you love flowers then this place is the heaven-made place for you. It is known for the meadow full of flowers. It is located at an altitude of 2730 meters. You can also visit a sky-breaking mountain popularly called Nanga Parbat which is 26000 feet and dominates the skies with its marvellous power.
Having a hot drink in Dal Lake with your companion will be someone’s bucket list but having fun alone is also self-pampering. Enjoying Shikara, living the present moment and clicking tons of photos for your Instagram post is what a great break is called. Just floating on the still water with many clouds passing by to reach a mountain peak and vanish will calm you mentally.
Thing people do on Dal Lake
Enjoying necklaces made from water lilies, water skiing, eating cucumbers, smoking hookahs, and barbecuing. There are many other things to do but for girls, there is a special place to shop. You will get India’s only floating market in Dal Lake.
Maybe we are among the very few generations left who will experience living in houseboats because Kashmir has only 15000 houseboats which are inherited properties and no other can be built. The houseboat is another level of experience where you should stay at least one
Valley of gold, yes this is how travellers describe sonmarg on their first visit. Till now you heard Kashmir is god’s place let us take you to gold meadows. You have to cross some crazy bridges.
Here you will enjoy all those things like playing around with local children, seating hours around the river and enjoying your time. You will learn a lot more about your choices after spending time with yourself.
Gulmarg is famous for its meadow of flowers, the attractive and magical colour in summer seems like a carpet on the ground. Here you will enjoy a cable car ride known as Gondola. Gulmarg is the only place where you will find an igloo cafe, so you must pay a visit there to chill and warm your body.
All solo trips teach you something better about the world. They will not give you achievements but definitely, these journeys will give you the power of tackling hurdles in the race of life. While travelling you will be your own guide, teacher, mother and many more characters at the same time.
If you visit in summer there are so many fun activities you will enjoy there and there are a lot more to discover in summer. Jannat- e- Kashmir where you will lose your soul forever, it is the real heaven on earth. You will enjoy cable car rides, skiing experiences, trekking, and many.
