For Malaysian travelers Kashmir provides a respite from the coastal weather & humid climate they are greeted in Kashmir with cool mountain air, scenic locations and embraced with the warmth of Sufi music and fed on the rich saffron flavored curry & goshtaba. As the tour opens with a sightseeing trip to gulmarg, the green velvety meadows spread like a carpet beneath the snow covered mountains, the gondola is a  magical glass cabin where you can sit comfortably  and below observe the gypsy life of shepherds and the pine clad mountains waiting to embrace you in solitude. Most of us want to get rid of busy city life and the stress we accumulate from work, A ride of gondola is recommended for such people who will soak in to the nature and get refreshed by the glimpses of beautiful fresh mountains;

Srinagar,  the capital city frames the perfect pictures of mountains, mosques on the lake & blooming tulip gardens,  lotus girls rowing in the lakes. while your stay in houseboat at dallake, the memories come alive, the stories strike back  about the children who eat lotus roots and swim all day in the lake. kids going to school rowing their small boats with pedals that propels their shikaras.

“SET OF QUESTIONS FROM MY MALAYASIAN FRIENDS & CLIENTS”

 

Over the years i have communicated with many Malaysian travelers and these are the common questions they ask before coming to Kashmir;

 

how safe is kashmir for women & solo tourists?

Recently in some leading news publications it was stated that Kashmir has very less crime ratio against tourists than any other state in India. being a Islamic state it’s absolutely safe for women & solo tourists. during the political unrest no tourist was hurt or killed. the good thing about kashmir is all the people who work with travel fraternity are kashmiri people 100% local. so they are very faithful and respect the guest. They know of the importance and the value of their guests. so solo travelers & women are always welcomed in Kashmir. They should always feel absolutely safe to travel to Kashmir.

watching the gushing rivers flow with cascades of milky waters, down from the snow crusted mountains which looks similar to one you had always dreamed of, soft murmur of the breeze that shakes the bright colored flower petals, the sunset that melts the sky or the distant rice fields looking like thick green carpet, the purple air lays softly on the pine trees like a blanket. and in chashma shahi the flowers are fed with spring waters. when the muezzin calls for prayers at early morning the azan is carried forth on the surface of waters and reverberates in the mountains. this sublime beauty brings immense joy and pleasure and one seemed to forget himself for a while.

what to do in kashmir?

This question brings lot of things in my mind. there are many things which can be done while on a stay in kashmir. it ranges from a person to person. if you are adventure loving you can go to pahalgam in summers where you can do short treks, enjoy river rafting, camping, or walk to the near by villages and meadows. paragliding is a latest activity added in srinagar. in winters you can do snowboarding.skiing in gulmarg. for the people who are traveling with their families can visit  the romantic mughal gardens of srinagar and older parts  city  where famous Muslim shrines  stand on the river  banks. For families it can be a learning experience  to understand how islam found it’s way into the valley from Persia & the role of Persian influence in carpet making and other handicrafts. kashmiri art is worth to admire and compliment. for the sophisticated works, with intricate needle stitching of shawls, hand weaving of carpets or the delicate patterns of papermachie and the woodwork which enthralls the tourists with awe & perfection. In kashmir you will have the best shopping experience ever.
