Of course great narration, reminds me of the Kashmir trip we did a few years back.

Thanks for sharing, keep such great travel experiences coming.
Thanks! I went through your travelogue as well. Wonderfully written!
There is stark difference between what Nature presented to us in April and to you in June. Less snow, less flowers but more greener pastures. I am already eager to visit Kashmir during the other seasons as well.

No need for any sort of royalty .
The fact that I am able to present the beauty of our Country to the whole world, is enough for me. Many thanks to Team-BHP for this.

Bonus for me are:
1)The nice comments from people like you who liked the travelogue.

And

2)Some people (unknown, at that moment) stopping their vehicles and asking me "Do you write in Team-BHP? I read your travelogue and identified you by your car!"
Feels great!

Thumbs up Re: A drive to the 'Paradise on Earth' : 5226 km grand road-trip from Kolkata to Kashmir

An awesome travelogue.... gearhead_mait !!

I'm travelling to Srinagar in the first week of June and was looking for an extensive travelogue which could give me an idea on the road conditions, local issues(if any), places to visit, travel itinerary, etc to make up my mind along with few pics to give me a first hand idea ... and I stumbled upon your experience.

One word to describe your travel leisure .... Magnificent !!!

Me and my wife are a travel enthusiast as well which is why we have opted to drive down to Srinagar as compared to other modes of travelling.

If it's OK with you, I might reach out to you for few doubts/concerns which I might have prior to the journey ??

You and your wife make a great pair and the credit must go to your wife as well for supporting you thoroughly on this tour. You guys are a great sport who went ahead with such an extensive tour inspite of limited number of leaves.....

A five star rating is a must .... !!!

BTW, we have been to sikkim as well and the driving sense in that valley has be seen to be believed. I only wish drivers in other states take a note or two from Sikkim....

Cheers

Many thanks for your kind words. Yes, it wouldn't have been possible without my wife's support.

Default A timelapse video | Road trip to Jammu and Kashmir in Hyundai EON

After completing the travelogue, I thought of preparing a video collating the various aspects of the beauty we have witnessed. But time was not permitting.

As a result, after nearly 3 months of completion of the trip, here is a compilation from my end:



Camera type : Dashcam
Model : SJ1000

Note : Viewing in 1080P quality is recommended.
