I think the Kashmir Valley is one of the most beautiful places in the world. There is something very magical about it. Staying on a houseboat is a lovely way to while away a few days. The Nagin Lake is quieter than the busier Dal Lake. If you ever get the chance to go to Srinigar you should stay on the Houseboat Moonshine. The family is lovely and welcoming and the mother is a great cook. Kashmir is still caught in a political tug-of-war between India and Pakistan and trouble does flair up so it’s worth checking on the political situation before travel.
Salman Rushdie wrote his children’s book Haroun and the Sea of Stories set in a magical place which is based on Kashmir.
“He knew what he knew: that the real world was full of magic, so magical worlds could easily be real.”
