Have you ever heard the sound of silence? Some say silence is loud because our thoughts fill our senses while others say silence is when peace fills our heart and soul. But the truth is that many of us have never felt or heard silence ever in our daily life. How can we? Even in the deepest of jungles, birds chirp, trees rustle…in the quietest of the hill stations, winds blow though the pine leaves making beautiful chiming sounds but that’s not the sound of silence.
If you want to hear the sound of Silence, visit Kashmir in Winters when there is nothing except a deep blanket of snow all across the valley. And when the snow falls softly on this blanket, it feels magical. You can only hear your breathing, your heart at peace with the snow all around you, the cold enveloping you in its embrace and your city-tired soul finally heaving a sigh of relief. To top it all, a cup of hot Kahwa in hand just adds more, much more to this peaceful moment.
Snow covered Chinar trees, frozen Dal lake, people wearing colourful Pherans and carrying Kangri in their hands…all scenes that are going to leave you mesmerized with this paradise on earth. And when one has had a moment or two to take in these peaceful vista, there are so many thrilling activities that are available to the visitors in Kashmir. From skiing in Gulmarg to horse riding in Pahalgam to snow trekking in Sonmarg… so much to do that even a lifetime is far too less. For those who want to take it slow, making snowman is the perfect way to play with the fresh soft snow. Don’t blame us, if snowman making turns into snow fight with your friends and families!!
