This book gives us a description of one of the loveliest countries of the world, with its beautiful lakes and rivers; its picturesque town and country life. Kashmir is known as a paradise of the world. The material which is included in this book is such as The Approach; The Vale of Kashmir; A Great Waterway; The City of Seven Bridges; A day on a Ridge, Village life; Stories of the Past; Resources and Development; Ancient Temples and Shrines; The Moghul Gardens; The Lakes of Kashmir; Springs and Pixies-Trans and Torrents; Wild Flowers; Mountain Peaks and Glaciers; A Glimpse of Kashmir Tibet; Some Kashmiri Types; Social Customs and Religions. From April to November inclusive the climate of Kashmir is delightful. From June 15th to the middle of September the valley of Kashmir and Srinagar are, however, uncomfortably warm. The maximum temperature indeed may then range between 85 and 100 F. Owing to the submerged rice fields and the lakes the atmosphere is humid. It feels rather like the interior of a Kew Gardens conservatory; Mosquitoes abound. This is the time to migrate to one of the hill stations-Gulmarg or Pahlgam, -or to go into camp among the mountains. Three or four thousand feet above the valley the climate at this reason is perfect. April, May, October and November are pleasant months in the valley of Kashmir, Most residents and visitors live in houseboats, of which there are a large number on the river and also on the Dal lake. Many of these houseboats are very comfortable and commodious. Hotel and boarding house accommodation is limited and it is advisable to make early application. Printed Pages: 208.
