INTRODUCTION:

Kashmir is a wonderful combination of tranquility, relaxation vibes, adventure thrills and finding yourself through spirituality. It also offers enriched culture to explore. Everyone who has ever considered Kashmir has signed, thinking that it was a magical, faraway land full of surprises. You are correct, I am sure! It’s worth every penny, and every long trip that you thought would be exhausting.

Kashmir is located between the Karakoram and Himalayan mountain lines. Each part of Kashmir is subject to political tensions from India, Pakistan, and China. Did you know that India and Pakistan have been fighting for Kashmir since 1947, when we became independent? The line of control divides India from Pakistani-controlled Kashmiri areas.

India controls Jammu and Kashmir. This is the whole of the eastern and southern regions. Jammu is great in summer and Srinagar during winter.

Pakistan controls Azad Kashmir and Gilgit-Baltistan, which make up the western and northern portions of the region.

China controls an area called AksaiChin in the northern region.
