We had asked you, dear readers, to share pictures from your travels to Kashmir.
Rediff reader Jagruti Joshi sent us these photographs.

Jagruti Joshi travelled to Kashmir in June 2019.

Along with her family, she visited Sonmarg, Gulmarg, Ladakh border and Pahalgam.

She says: "Kashmir is paradise on Earth. The entire state is filled with scenic views. But Betaab valley in Pahalgam is one of the best places to visit."

"The beautiful landscapes around Lidder river that runs through the valley will take your breath away.

"At Gulmarg, which is a skiing destination you will see maximum snow."
