The picture was shot at Katra(The Trikuta Mountains) in Jammu (India).
This trip was a memorable one, however, when I look over the photographs, it leaves an air of melancholy in my life….

Now this is Gulmarg..!!

Gulmarg is a hill station in Kashmir Valley and Gulmarg means “Meadow of Flowers”.

The town is within the Himalayas and is within miles of the Line of Control between India and Pakistan.

Lots of memories to reminisce…the horse-ride, the flowers, the scenery, LOC, etc etc..Gulmarg

Shikara, the wooden boats, is the unique cultural symbol of Kashmir. You can find them in almost same sizes however decorated in different styles in order to attract tourists like me. And do not forget to bargain before going for a ride in any one of these.

The Dal Lake has a large area covered with Water Lilies, spread across several kilometers…
