There are few places in India that sport such tremendous beauty as these two regions located in the far northwest at the foothills of the Himalayas. The cooler climate and spectacular mountain views often evoke an Alpen feel in this cherished area. As the geography of the area descends into lower elevations, it can vary into conifer forests, broadleaf forests and sub-tropical forests. The northern region is home to the Siachen Glacier, the longest glacier in the Himalayas. Jammu and Kashmir contains several valleys. Aptly known as the “Valley of Paradise”, the Kashmir Valley offers a large array of multi-season sporting adventures including skiing, trekking and horseback riding. Srinagar, a blossoming city located on the shores of Dal Lake, is a major draw for visitors wishing to explore its ornate houseboats. Built by the British during the early days of their rule, these spacious and luxuriously furnished vessels now serve as exotic overnight accommodations. Ladakh, a broad region to the north with a rich history of Buddhist culture, offers visitors spectacular mountain landscapes amid peaceful surroundings.
