    I keep trying to comment, I hope this one gets to you. First of all, your images are stunning. My father-in-law is from Kashmir. He left in the 50’s. I think he may have gone back once or twice since then. Sad situation in a beautiful place. You have a positive spin on things, which is refreshing. It is a great way to live life. It was fun to read about your adventures in India because of your positivity.

      Thanks for the comment Jenny, I have to put all comments on pending because of the amount of spam I receive, sorry about that. The situation isn’t great obviously but I can’t deny the beauty of Kashmir. It’s an amazing place to visit 🙂

    So sad to read about the political situation.
    On the bright side, it was so beautiful as evidenced by your pics. The prices were awesome. Thanks for bringing this part of India to our attention

    This is quite a tale — almost as if it’s a screenplay for a movie. I was fascinated by it. It looks like such a beautiful place, and far off the beaten tourist track. Maybe someday I can get there. Thanks for all the good info.

    It definitely took courage to explore an area in such a difficult political situation but you can tell it was absolutely worth it! Your pictures are amazing and the floating market of Dal Lake sounds like something I would love to browse! Even if I have to get up so early 😀

    What stunning photos. Wow. I love that you decided to rely on the advice of an old man you found at the bus station to decide if you should take your route only to find it was closed from the snow. It sounds exactly how one should travel when you are young and have time. I can’t believe that accommodation cost $3.5 USD. That seems absolutely crazy but as you said, tourism isn’t huge there.

    The best places to see are somehow those less travelled. Thanks for the insights to this wondrous region!

    This looks like an incredibly beautiful place to visit! It’s too bad it’s been affected by war and political divide. It seems like you really need to be dedicated to get there for everything you had to go through to arrive. Very thorough overview and I really enjoyed your photos.

    It is a shame when such a beautiful place is under political conflict. Really it is sad that any area is under political conflict 🙁 That is crazy that you could spend so little in that many days! Thanks for sharing your tips so others can travel to Srinagar too!

      Indeed it is, Elizabeth. I guess that’s one of the reasons why the local economy is performing poorly and hence, everything is so cheap.

    Kashmir is a beautiful place and also in a sorry state because of politics. We as Indian travellers always encourage people to visit Kashmir. We want people to see Kashmir as a gorgeous destination and not as some political pawn. Thanks that you have visited the places and written about it. Your photographs are also quite beautiful.
