    Kashmir is. A is an experience of a lifetime, unforgettable in every way. The Kashmir holidays experience is no less splendid than a most beautiful dream, the kind of

    which we see with our eyes open. From the quiet sunset on Dal Lake in Srinagar to the thrilling rush of white water rafting adventure sports of Gulmarg, Kashmir has a

    Jammu, the beautiful lakes and valleys of Kashmir (Gulmarg, Sonmarg, Pahalgam, Srinagar etc) and the magnificent mountains of Ladakh and Leh. This is the reason we

    offer tour packages encompassing these three distinct regions of Kashmir. Kashmir Tour Packages is also a holy land with

    pilgrims visiting the Amaranth Siva-Linga made of ice and also the Vaishno Devi temple pilgrimage. Therefore, if you are a pilgrim to Kashmir, you should choose the
