India - Kupwara the unexplored, Kashmir

website | tumblr | Facebook | Twitter

 

Kupwara, a northern district in the state of Jammu and Kashmir is as virgin as it gets.

 

Being very close to India’s most disputed border, Kupwara unfortunately ignites a lot of fear. But things are changing now.

 

The place is studded with natural beauty and warm, hospitable locals minus the throngs of tourists. The tourism department of the state of Jammu and Kashmir is encouraging visitors to give this place a try.

 

This is an idyllic summer scene in rural Kashmir. Wooden houses with tinned roofs surrounded by rice fields. And Himalayas over the horizon!

 

In the lower valleys of the Himalayas, like the Kashmir valley, wood is abundant. The entire valley is actually a beautiful forest.

 

A land so fertile, a saying goes, sow iron and you might just get an iron tree!
