Jammu and Kashmir is an exceptionally beautiful place. The landscape of this place is simply out of this world and that is why it has been referred to as the Paradise on Earth.

Lying between the Great Himalayan range and the Pir Panjal mountain range, Kashmir offers a wide variety of interesting places for sightseeing. The union territory stands to the north Himachal Pradesh and Punjab and to the west of Ladakh.


 Major part of the landscape of Kashmir  is mountainous. The mountains in Kashmir are categorised as Alpine and Himalayan. Some of the world’s highest peaks are located in the union territory. The region between Karakoram and Zanskar mountains forms Ladakh.  Drass located near the Kargil city is the  coldest place in India and said to be the coldest inhabited place of  the world after Siberia.


The physical geography of J&K can be categorised into five zones which are closely related to the structural components of the western Himalayas. These expanses from west to east are comprised of plains, the foothills, the Pir Panjal Range, the Vale of Kashmir, and the Great Himalayas zone. The climate of the union territory tends to  swing from alpine on the eastern edge to subtropical in the southwest. As a result of being stationed in the south, it experiences a humid, subtropical climate, whereas Kashmir valley is more towards the colder side for the major part of the year with pleasant weather in summer.


All the three divisions of the state offer a lot of attractions. J&K  is home to several valleys such as the Poonch Valley, Chenab Valley, Lidder Valley, and Sind Valley. Ladakh too boasts of astounding landscapes including the breathtaking mountains and green vales. Markha Valley,Nubra valley,Dha Hanu Valley and Indus Valley are some of its attractions.
