Kashmir, in the northernmost part of India, is mainly a mountainous region. Now, where it is a region with rivers, valleys, and mountains around, that region was a lake in history. Geologists say, in ancient times, the lake drained to the gap of Baramulla(Varahamula). Baramulla is the city located on the banks of the river Jhelum. Kashmir is a place that has lush green vegetation and dense tropical forests.

Srinagar is an incredible destination. Many of us know Kashmir is famous for its arts and crafts, decoration pieces, handicrafts, and furniture, which are world-famous.
