There are all over big snow Caps Mountains surrounded by, who are standing from infinite time, spreading its hands to welcome you. Srinagar is the place from where you have to move to other places of Kashmir. When we reached Srinagar, it itself started telling us about the beauty of Kashmir.

We took shikara ride in dal lake in the late evening when sun is about to set, reflections of it’s in the water was so mesmerizing. Surrounded big mountains are like looking at you and smiling. It seems they are so close to touch but when you try to touch they go away.

But don't think it is not beautiful. It is beautiful on its own way. All the mountains and tress become white.
