Jammu and Kashmir travel guide

Sacred & Religious Sites · Bodies of Water · Gardens
India's northernmost state, Jammu and Kashmir boasts many notable temples, yet the region's claim to fame remains its natural splendor. A tour of Jammu and Kashmir takes you across a mountainous landscape at the foothills of the Lesser Himalaya, with abundant skiing and hiking opportunities. Despite its natural appeal and a wealth of cultural attractions, this border area remains off most tourists' itineraries because of enduring tensions between India and Pakistan. The few foreign visitors who make it here usually head to Ladakh, a trekkers' paradise that's also considered one of northern India's safest places.
