    Very nice post most of the bloggers stick with Srinagar Gulmarg and pahalgam but you penned own a very informative piece about some of the very beautiful places in Kashmir which almost all of the tourists miss on their Kashmir tour. All the places that you have mentioned above are very beautiful and most importantly untouched so one can see the real natural beauty of Kashmir at these places. Thanks for this beautiful post
