What a beauty Nature had given to Kashmir. You will feel alive when you travel to these places. Pictures will definitely blow your mind 🙂
Things to know about Dal Lake Srinagar & Drass Memorial
Day 6 : 6th June 2015 : Jammu to Srinagar
The route was from Manali to Pathankot yesterday night (Punjab Border) and from Pathankot to Jammu. Reached on 10.30 AM at Jammu. Had breakfast and started for Srinagar.
We booked Innova on sharing basis with two Brazilian girls and a Bangladeshi couple. We had great conversation with these guys. They told us that they are finding our country very amazing.
We had lunch near place called “Shaitan Tekdi” (Ghost’s Hill). That driver told us that this place is haunted. But we experienced great weather over there. And from that point Kashmir started.
At 7.00 PM we reached Kashmir (Srinagar). Driver dropped us near Dal lake.
Travelling to these places makes people really think about how wonderful creation the nature had gifted us. Seriously, Travelling leaves you speechless and turns you into storyteller.
We booked Room in Dal Lake (Houseboat). It was really nice. See the interior..

We brought parcel from Hotel and had delicious food in the houseboat. And ended our day with gossips.
Day 7 : 7th June 2015 : Srinagar – Sonmarg – Drass Memorial – Leh City
Waking up in the morning with this view…
According to my opinion ; Kashmiri People are good hearted. They will never cheat you cause the care taker & owner of houseboat still in contact with me. Above I mentioned his number 🙂
We started for Leh (Ladakh) so we went to Public transport stand by Shikara
(Small Boat used for Transport in Dal Lake).
We started for Leh by booking Tavera. Bashir Bhai was the driver & owner of car indeed a very good person. Shared by Devashish, a lawyer from Gurgaon (Delhi) & his friend Sumit. We had a nice conversation with these guys.
We were not in a mood to leave this beautiful city behind but if you have to reach somewhere you have to leave from existing place to reach there. I think I said the dialogue from Bollywood Movie Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani 😉
We had breakfast before the mountain section starts.
The mountain section had started. Ice mountains from both side of car and deep valley was making that view beautiful as well as dangerous.
It was thrilling experience to travel in such circumstances.
We took halt at Zojila Pass where clicked many pictures and what I can say about the view with Maggi. Yumm!
After that we started our Journey..
We reached Indian War Memorial in Drass Sector. It was a very proud moment for us that Indian Soldiers won the battle with Pakistan but eventually sad one that many of our soldiers like Capt. Vikram Batra & Capt. Manoj Pandey & many soldiers sacrificed their lives for our Nation.
We left this place with mixed feelings. And took halt after an hour next to Drass for Tea & Maggiee. (There was news on T.V. Channels that Maggie is banned in Delhi)
Reached at 1.00 AM around in Leh. Bashir bhai car driver was with us to book a good hotel room. Finally, booked Hotel Asia and slept with these epic travel memories.
Now, We are in Ladakh !
