Jammu & Kashmir

Kashmir, known as the Venice of the East, is a paradise on earth, siting high in the Himalayas. Sadly, this idyllic corner of North India can at times generally be off-limits for tourists. So we do always need to be mindful and check with The British Foreign & Commonwealth Office as to the current travel advisory on luxury holidays to Jammu and Kashmir.  Always worth the wait, this dreamy diverse landscape, sees soaring snow-capped peaks reflect onto crystal clear lakes peppered with lotus flowers, water lilies and floating gardens.

Spend time in the capital Srinagar exploring the rich history of this fascinating world, with beautiful mosques, buzzing bazaars and age-old shops peddling papier-mâché treasures and world-famous embroidered shawls. Or just simply relax and watch the world float by on your very own houseboat and savour some of the most evocative images of Kashmir if not India.

Away from the lakes you can travel up into the hilly meadows and visit the world's highest cable car in the delightful hill station of Gulmarg. Here the hotels offer a wonder back in time to a bygone era when Kashmir was really viewed as the Switzerland of the East. Spend your days meandering on foot or pony back through the pretty meadows and ancient cedar forests offering some truly extraordinary vistas.
