The word “Kashmir” is thought to have been derived from Sanskrit, referred to as káśmīra. A local etymology suggests that it means “land desiccated from water.”

Kashmir lies in the northernmost part of the Indian subcontinent. Until the mid-19th century, it referred to the Kashmir Valley between the Great Himalayas and the Pir Panjal Range. However, today, the term encompasses a larger area,

Including:

  • India-administered Jammu and Kashmir
  • India-administered Ladakh
  • Pakistan-administered Azad Kashmir and Gilgit-Baltistan
  • Chinese-administered Aksai Chin and the Trans-Karakoram Tract.

Historical Facts:

  • 1820: The Sikh Empire, under Ranjit Singh, annexed Kashmir.
  • 1846: After the Sikh defeat in the First Anglo-Sikh War, the British purchased the region under the Treaty of Amritsar, making Gulab Singh the new ruler.
  • 1947: The Partition of India turned the former princely state into a disputed territory, now administered by India, China, and Pakistan.

This 10-day tour offers a blend of spirituality and nature exploration. Our driver will pick you up from Srinagar Airport and then drive to the hotel.

The major destinations covered in this tour are:

Mughal Garden, Nishant Bagh (The Garden Of Pleasure), Shalimar Bagh, Betab Valley, Aru Valley, Sonmarg Valley, the picturesque Pahalgam Valley, and Satsar Lake, Vishansar Lake, Yamsar Lake, Gadsar Lake, and more.
