Department of Tourism, Jammu and Kashmir

The State of Jammu & Kashmir is known for its traditional and street foods. Each region, Jammu, Kashmir & Ladakh, has its own special and traditional foods influenced by the climatic conditions & customs.

The valley of Kashmir is connected to the rest of the surrounding places though mettled roads that go over the passes, notable among these are : Banihal pass, Zojila Pass, Margan pass, Smithan pass.

The State has a visibly varied terrain and offers spectacular contrasts in nature, with its alpine pastures in Kashmir and barren wastelands & rugged wastelands in Ladakh.

The water bodies of the Kashmir offer breathtaking Shikara boat rides. The joy of smoothly gliding over the water with the crisp sound of the paddle indeed is a feeling to be imbibed.

Kashmir has been rightly called the angler's paradise., with a network of glaciated streams, rivers as well as high altitude lakes all carrying the bounty of trout, both brown and rainbow.
