Jammu & Kashmir

Dal Lake, KashmirJammu and Kashmir, the northernmost state of India, is a perfect assimilation of paradisaical beauty and ethnic cultures. Jammu gives you an opportunity to make a visit to some of the most ancient temples of the country whereas Kashmir is a picturesque land of lush gardens, crystal-clear lakes and exotic shikaras. The state is nestled in the lap of the Himalayas and consists of three divisions – Jammu, the Kashmir Valley and the mountains of Ladakh. It has Himachal Pradesh on its south, Pakistan on its west while the People's Republic of China lies to its north and east.

The rugged landscape of Jammu and Kashmir affects the climatic conditions much. Towards Jammu, the climate happens to be monsoonal. Jammu has hot summers with temperature reaching up to a maximum of 40 degrees centigrade. The regions of Ladakh and Zanskar remain warm during summers. Erratic rainfall occurs in the months of July and August. January is the coldest month of the year with temperature plummeting to a minimum of -40 degrees centigrade, immobilising all the rivers.
