Jammu & Kashmir
Kashmir is famous for its four distinctive seasons, each with its own peculiar character and charm.
Spring sees a million blossoms turning the ground into a riot of colours.
In summer the entire valley turns into a mosaic of varying shades of green.
In autumn the green turns into gold and finally to rustic red.
In winter the landscape turns bare only to be covered with the white mantle of the first snowfall.
I reached Srinagar when the snow was yet to come. The skies were overcast and the bare ground below was waiting for the first snowfall.
Gulmarg possessed a different picture. The entire region was covered with snow with icicle hanging from the roof tops.
Patnitop had a similar sight with its rolling meadows with only patches of snow.
