Kashmir has forever been considered the Paradise on Earth. But since independence, it has been better known to be the war capital of Asia with India, Pakistan, and China always claiming the paradise for themselves. In the midst of all these tensions and wars, you are sure to miss out on these lesser-known secrets about Kashmir that we have compiled for you..Cultural heritage of Kashmir is as multi-dimensional as the variegated backdrop of its physical exuberance which has nursed and inspired it all along. Its sanctity and evergreen stature can be conveniently inferred from the chaste shimmering snow, with its virgin demeanour from top to toe, adorning the towering peaks of its mountainous periphery. Mellowing kisses of the sun endow these summits with a rosy blush lending perennial health to our warbling brooks, roaring waterfalls and sedate and solemn lakes
