Did he mention anywhere that he travelled by car to Srinagar?

Wow, another quick thread on Kashmir and i repeat myself, simply mind blowing pictures and great environs. I agree it looks beautiful than switzerland, perhaps the greenery is more there though.

Which month did you visit Gulmarg? Also, please continue posting as many picture that you can.

Sigh Sigh! Hope to visit this place someday in future!

I have been to Zugspitze in Germany, but these snaps tell me that our own Kashmir is much more exciting.
