There is plenty of choice in J&K if one is really digging to see the beauty of the Himalayan ranges. The major places to check out in the Kashmir region are Srinagar , Pahalgam, Gulmarg and Sonamarg. While Srinagar is a best stop over for a week, the other three also make nice hop over destinations for a day from the capital city. While Jammu has got plenty of options for pilgrims, check around it too, especially Patnitop & Kishtwar, which are considered to be the best Holiday Resorts of this region. Not leaving Ladakh behind, tourist looking for some seclusion can visit Aru, Dah and Hanu to enjoy some peaceful quite retreats. These hilly sites also offer abundant adventure expedition options.
