Hi friends hope you are going well with life.
Everyone loves travelling. it has been seen by researchers that travelling to new places can boost your confidence. Well today i am going to tell something about Kashmir which people always call as "Heaven on Earth".
Everyone who visits kashmir feels like he is in heaven. Yes it is real. 100% real.
I myself interview these tourists and tell them about kashmir.The answer is always one . Kashmir is heaven.
Even the great old kings used to come to kashmir and enjoy .
There is a great saying by Mughal Emperor Jehangir when he first set foot in the Kashmir Valley he was so smitten by the exceptional beauty of the valley.
“Agar firdous baroye zameen ast, hami
asto, hami asto hami ast”
Roughly translated, these words mean
"If ever there was heaven on this earth, it is this, it is this, it is... "
One thing about kashmiri people is they are very loyal to their state. They love their state.if kashmiri people are in other state and have got all the luxuries of the world the will still miss their state. Kashmiries love their nation more than their parents and more than their life but one of the most unfortunate thing about kashmir is that they are the most unlucky people. Kashmiri people are misread by others .they treat the kashmiries harashly. Everyone feels kashmir is not safe but believe me these are those people who have never visited kashmir or don't have enough knowledge about kashmir. If u are planning to visit kashmir just try googling and find opinions and reviews of people who have visited kashmir.

i guess no one would have ever told you that Rivers are worth seeing in kashmir but the truth is kashmir should be most famous for its rivers. Little streams and gushing rivers are the most beautiful. Lidder, jhelum, sukhnag and many others. Large water lakes like Dal lake, wular lake, manasbal and many others. The best part is you can stay in houseboats that are on middle of these lakes. Houseboats are little houses sailing in these lakes. They are fully luxurious.
