Shutterbox Kashmir Photo Tour (07 Days; # 282)
Described as ‘heaven on Earth’ by the legendary poet Amir Khusro, Kashmir is the land of many wonders. Our journey begins at Srinagar where we will savour the spectacle of Mughal gardens by the Dal lake, treat our taste buds to regional delicacies like Roghan Josh and Kashmiri Pulao, pay homage to Shankaracharya Temple and Hazratbal Shrine and spend the night in the exquisite Kashmiri houseboats. Next we head out to Pahalgam, “the valley of shepherds”. While Saffron fields and Avantipur ruins provide excellent opportunities for photography, Anantnag sulphur spring is a great spot for resting sore feet. Enroute to Gulmarg, we will drive along the Lidder river, photographing the captivating scenery. We’ll spend the last day in Gulmarg enjoying cable car rides and horse riding before returning to Srinagar for our departure.
