A heavenly Shikara ride

By prabirsenuk    
The Dal Lake in Srinagar in the state of Jammu and Kashmir in India is 8 Km long and has a of width of 4 Km, spreading over a total of 26 Sq. Km.

If one is in Srinagar, boat rides in Dal Lake is an experience. These colourful boats are called Shiksaras and one could just get rowed for hours. You would find floating gardens within this lake, and if you should push the garden down into the lake with a stick, it would float up again. I found people in boats picking up whatever they have grown.

Yes, indeed a heaven on Earth experience. Last time I visited Kashmir was when I was 12 years old. I was absent from my country for 25 years. When I returned I made a point to have a great holiday in Darjeeling and Kashmir .. Thank you for your comment Grin .. Prabir ..
