Kashmir is a beautiful valley lying between the Himalayas and thePir Panjal Range. It is situated in the northwest region of India andis 135 km long and 32 km wide. It is said that if there is heaven onearth, then it is in Kashmir. Kashmir was made by the Jhelum River, itis said that during earlier days, it was an imperative part for theHinduism and later for Buddhism. Srinagar is the capital of Jammu andKashmir.Kashmir is known for its breathtaking scenic beauty. The KashmirValley is in the shape of a saucer. The local people of Kashmir aremostly into agriculture and lead a very plain and simple life. Thesummer capital vfg is known for a very beautiful place called the SevenSprings. Visitors can see the beauty through the beautiful trolleys. Iwent to this divine place when I was doing my primary school and duringthose days, the trolley was open and could only accommodate 2 people.It was a very scary, yet a magnificent site from the up.Shikaras, also called as the wooden boats in Srinagar are yet againanother breathtaking place to visit. In the clam beautiful lake with apicturesque view, everything looks beautiful just like a fresh canvaspainting with bright and nice colors. Visitors spend a lot of time inthis place. One can hire houseboats or rent and stay for as long asthey want. The interiors of the houseboats are simply exotic. Kashmiris a hot piece of property for India, however, is being eyed byPakistan. Despite the constant terror that prevails in Kashmir,visitors under army protection find it extremely safe to visit it.
