If you were to wake up one morning and look outside the window to find that everything was under a thick blanket of white, the trees, the ground, the fields and everything imaginable under a thick sheet of pure white, what would be your first reaction?
We finally did realize why Kashmir is called the paradise on earth. Right from the slopes to the trees to the meadows, the valleys, the trees, the skies, it all seems like someone very dedicatedly hand crafted everything in perfect harmony and unison and named it Kashmir.
As you move towards Gulmarg from Srinagar, the hustle bustle of the city is left behind and you see nature in all her glory. During winter, the area is completely white and under a thick blanket of snow.
Every morning, there is a fresh layer of snow on everything. Tree branches bending just a little with the snow on them, the green giving way to white, the little cottages peeking out of the snow and losing their own color to blend with the white of the snow… the epitome of perfection.
