Departure : Ex - Jammu

Cradled in the lap of majestic mountains of the Himalayas, Kashmir is the most beautiful place on earth. The state of Jammu and Kashmir is rightly called Paradise. It is situated right at the top most part of the country and if Mother India is a Queen, then Jammu and Kashmir surely looks like the Crown on her head. From sun-kissed mountains, lush green valleys, beautiful gardens, to blue lakes, the state of Jammu and Kashmir has it all. The land of sparkling rivers and sleepy lakes, of startling gardens and regal Chinar trees, Kashmir boasts of some of the most beautiful flowering meadows and snow-capped peaks. The abundance of natural beauty has earned the valley a nickname of the Switzerland of the East.
