When Jahangir visited Kashmir for the very first time in 17th Century he said,
“Gar firdaus bar-ru-e-zamin ast, hami asto, hami asto, hami ast.”
(If there is a heaven on earth, it’s here, it’s here, it’s here)
It’s no wonder that the snow-covered view of Gulmarg is often called enchanting.
You’ve been to many places but if you have not visited this Paradise on Earth, you’ve missed out on the experience of a lifetime.
