Popularly known as the "Paradise on Earth," Jammu and Kashmir is a tourist favorite for its scenic splendor, snow-capped mountains, plentiful wildlife, exquisite monuments, hospitable people, and local people handicrafts. Nestled in the Himalayan, Pir Panjal and Karakoram mountain ranges are renowned for their natural beauty and gentle people. Kashmir is memorable, as it's not only a nature lover's paradise but also a must-visit place for all adventure junkies.
Kashmir's trekking and hiking routes are spellbinding, dotted with the most beautiful mountain peaks, massive glaciers, splendid monasteries, blue lakes, rivers, forests, verdant meadows, and tall pine trees.

Among one of the top honeymoon destinations in India, Gulmarg boasts of being a beautiful town, unlike the crowd in Manali and Shimla. Kashmir is also home to Asia's longest Cable Car - Gulmarg Gondola, a truly enchanting experience. The Shikara in the Dal Lake of Srinagar cannot be missed! The exquisite Mughal gardens like Nishat Bagh, Shalimar Bagh, and Chashm-E-Shahi are also must-visits.

Jammu and Kashmir is exotic and is rightly called heaven on Earth. One cannot travel to J & K all year long as the weather is rather cold and gets freezing in the winter months.
Kashmir could seem a little pricey which is a downside.
