I think everyone has. So that made three versions of Srinagar. There is one that I had in my head, the one that I saw from the window of my plane. And then there was one that I saw standing inside the heart of the...

I wonder what I have missed with the places that I did not decide to visit. When I was looking upon the places to visit in Sonamarg, google promised little. But luckily I kept my plans flexible. So when...

Well, I liked Gulmarg too. But unlike Gulmarg, people reside in Pahalgam. It is more like a village than just a tourist destination. It also means that people are warmer and more welcoming instead of constantly haggling you to hire them. Pahalgam has many sides to it. The...

Gulmarg is gorgeous in every season - winters, springs, summer and autumn. The valley just changes colour with different degrees of clouds and mist hanging around. I am sure the place looks mindblowing in winters (and...
