Gulmarg is a hill station in Kashmir Valley and Gulmarg means “Meadow of Flowers”.
The town is within the Himalayas and is within miles of the Line of Control between India and Pakistan.
The following pictures were taken from a recent vacation to Jammu & Kashmir.
This is the flamboyant Dal Lake in Srinagar, Jammu and Kashmir, India. This massive lake covers an area of 22 sq. kms.
Kashmiri Lasses rowing in the lake.
Shikara, the wooden boats, is the unique cultural symbol of Kashmir. You can find them in almost same sizes however decorated in different styles in order to attract tourists like me. And do not forget to bargain before going for a ride in any one of these.
The Dal Lake has a large area covered with Water Lilies, spread across several kilometers…
You can find these Water Lilies in yellow and white colors….
The scene of women rowing boats is just so common in this lake unlike other parts of India.
You can find mountains only on one side of the lake…
