While planning a trip, researching is the first step!
Reading blogs about the place, searching for the best locations to visit and looking for the most famous food to go gluttony over, plays a major role in developing enthusiasm to visit a destination. After the exciting whereabouts comes the question of safety, travelling during night, compatibility for travelling alone, etc.
While planning a trip to Jammu and Kashmir, a common thought that comes in our mind is, “Is it safe to travel to Jammu and Kashmir?”
Yes, it is completely safe, sound and wonderful to travel to the beautiful heaven of Jammu and Kashmir.

“So I think of you, my words sing of you,
as these fragrances bring you back to me and so I search for you,
Outside the window, under a blue sky, midst the green fields of this land,
I look for you and then, I find you like Kashmir.” -Abhinav Chandel
He defines Kashmir as “Untouched, Unexplored, Unheard, Unseen and Unsaid” and marks the most beautiful quality of the valley. Everytime you visit Kashmir, it will bring you something new to witness.
