One of the major life lessons Covid has given us is that life is too short, and there are too many beautiful things to witness in this world. One such thing that tops this list of beauty is ‘Kashmir’.

Kashmir truly is a paradise for an explorer. While we’ve known Kashmir as a land of heaven, there’s a lot more to this beauty. If you are an artist, Kashmir has the means to inspire your art. If you are a nature lover, it’s your wonderland to wander in. From its breathtaking landscapes to the pristine lakes, from the trekking points to the art and heritage museums, from its handcrafts to the authentic Kashmiri cuisine, it has a lot to offer.

Here are the lesser-known offerings of Kashmir other than its picturesque scenery to explore on your trip.

– More than 30 solitary regions to explore

Other than the well-known itinerary of Ladakh and Jammu, Kashmir has a lot more to reveal. There are more than 30 such localities you can explore, each with its unique offering. For instance, you can ski to your heart’s content in Gulmarg or get allured by the awestruck views of Pulwama. Poonch in Kashmir has too many offbeat locations to observe. Sanasar is a heaven for adventure enthusiasts, while it offers many thrilling activities like rock climbing, trekking, paragliding, and abseiling. Anantnag is home to many ancient temples while Kishtwar proves to be an animal lover’s paradise. Such unseen sights and sounds make Kashmir an explorer’s paradise.

– Kashmiri Cuisine
Just like Kashmir, its food is also opulent yet simple and diverse yet evincing a distinct identity. The gastronomical journey in Kashmir proves to be as enchanting as its views.
Rogan Josh is one of their most loved dishes. However, it isn’t the kind of Kashmiri food you will find easily, but only elaborate occasions call for its elaborate preparation.
Wazwan is a multi-course meal in Kashmiri cuisine. Almost all the dishes are meat-based using lamb or chicken with few vegetarian dishes. Preparing Wazwan cuisine is considered an art in Kashmiri culture.

If you are a chai lover, you must taste Kashmiri Kahwa.

– Winter Products and handicrafts
Kashmiri Handicrafts speaks volume about Kashmir’s artistic heritage. These will not only beautify your house and wardrobe but also make excellent souvenirs and gifts. You will be spoilt for choices once you start exploring the various craft items around the local markets. Papier mache, crewel embroidery, Sozani embroidery, walnut wood carving, hand-knotted carpet (Pashmina) are the most loved items of Kashmiri craftsmanship.

With each moment spent in Kashmir, you will experience a divergent discovery, about the land and yourself. Exploring the land of Kashmir allows one to explore beyond their city soul and find peace within.

Much to our joy, Kashmir has, at last, picked the travel and tourism exercises post lockdown. To guarantee the most extreme security and safety measures, vacationers with Covid-19 negative reports are permitted to visit the valley.
