Collard greens(haak) vendor | Vegetable suppliers and vendors conduct their usual business in floating vegetable-market at the interiors of Dal Lake, in Srinagar. The Floating Market in Dal Lake that contributes nearly 25 per cent of Kashmir Valley's vegetation. Dal lake is famous for its floating gardens and “foating vegetable market”, the only one of its kind in India and only the second in the world, the other being the rowing shops along the backwaters of the Mekong Delta in Vietnam.

One of the oldest handicrafts of Kashmir, Kani shawls are different from other shawls is that they're woven by using small wooden spokes in the place of a shuttle as in a traditional loom. These spokes are called “tujii” or “kani” locally (photo 4). . Kani shawls get their name from Kanihama, the place where these shawls are woven. The government of Jammu and Kashmir has granted a geographical indication to the Kani shawl, making it illegal to sell shawls made outside of the Kanihama area as Kani shawls. . The most expensive Kani shawls are handwoven from pashmina yarn. However, nowadays one can find Kani stoles or scarves that are machine woven, which makes them less expensive, affordable, and great for daily wear. . A Kani shawl makes a bold statement piece, and can instantly transform one's outfit. . (Shawls in the photos are from my personal collection). #babakashmiri #beingkashmiri #ootd #kashmiriculture #kashmiriwear #lifeinkashmir #instawear #shawls #stoles #ethnicchic #kashmir #kashmiridressing #kashmiriyat #kashmirdiaries #travel #culture #kaeshurlove #beautyofkashmir #visittokashmir #jktourism #jktourismofficial #kashmirihandicrafts #handicraft #madewithlove #heavenonearth #potd #color #winter #winterwear #bridalwear

As the seasons change, the temperature in kashmir become uncomfortable for many peoples. Ateeqa, 52 years old lady, setup a fire pit on the roadside in the old city of srinagar. While talking with Ateeqa, she told me, "i am a responsible housewife and in these cold days, it's my duty to make charcoals which i use in kangri (Hot-pot) to serve my family in harsh cold nights, charcoal in kangris help them to keep warm during power cuts in these winter months."

Traveling solo always leaves you with memorable experience. I was standing before the locked (i thought it was) gate & clicking pictures behind the bar. Suddenly a beautiful girl popped up & say aap bahar kyun rooke hain, ander kyun Nahin aate. She opened the door & I noticed it wasn't locked 😑. She left right after I entered. It's like pari Mahal ki husn mujhe pathar Masjid mein Mili aur aayse hi hawa mein kho gaayi. I was all alone in the compound. The weather was getting colder & I came back another sweet memory that I keep making in the land of beautiful people #Kashmir #captivatingkashmir #whenInKashmir #EverydayKashmir #LifeinKashmir #potd #igers #mosques #islamicWorld #islamicheritage #srinagar #Architecture #archways #ancientarchitecture #ancientbuilding #travelwalk #photowalk #travelgram #winter19 #wintegram #wintervacation #Naturegram #building #mughalarchitecture #islamic #winterwonderland

I'm afraid of riding small boats but then you go to Kashmir on a regular interval & never try their Shikaras, that's like a cardinal sin. So this time I gave it a go.& Then that iconic line popped up "chup ke se sun iss pal ki dhun Iss pal mein jeevan saara Sapnon ki hai duniya yahi Meri aankhon se dekho zara" Lol, as if I couldn't be more dramatic on Dal.... #kashmirbeauty #captivatingkashmir #kashmirgram #LifeinKashmir #shikara #houseboat #EverydayKashmir #whenInKashmir #Travelogue #travelwalk #winter19 #wintergram #dallake #dallakeview #skyline #srinagar #lakes #potd

It is important to take some time for self-care. Depression and anxiety are real things . We cant ignore them. Most of the time we pay less attention towards mental health and dont consider it worth discussing them. Well , we live in Kashmir, worlds most depressed zone !!! we need to talk about these things !! we have to !!!! when we dont speak , it get convert into anger and hate ; and we end up hurting ourselves . Please do speak to your loved ones when you feel you are struggling to live normal life or you are unable to feel happiness . #depression#anxiety#mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #kashmir#kashmiri#lifeinkashmir#kashmirilifestyles

As I walked through the downtown there were many faces who were curious, some were amiable enough to talk about the happening world. Even the cute little munchkins asked if I play PUBG. Leaving all those happy faces behind, I stood here for a moment. Just to feel the calmness of Jhelum. It was a winter midday. The chillai kalan was about to begin. But the sun was still shining & gifted me this mesmerising view.... #EverydayKashmir #whenInKashmir #LifeinKashmir #downtownkashmir #zainakadal #kashmirgram #kashmir #Kasheer #jhelum #jehlum #refl#winterlandscape #snowyvalley #decembergram #wintervacation #Travelogue #travelwalk #streetgram #potd #igers #igtravel #skyporn #Architecture #shrine #kashmirvalley #srinagar #kashmirbeauty #Colorsoflife #winter19 #foodforeyes

When I travel I like to know about the everyday life & culture of people because that's when you can realize the true meaning of traveling. It's not just endless selfies or posing before colorful backgrounds. Rather it's about the enrichment of knowledge regarding other people's lives, the histories & the sweet gestures that you leave along. Then you find out we are all same. We all have struggles & little happy moments. We all need someone to get comfortable & talk about what we've stored all these days. It's not about showing off how many places you've covered, it is about how many hearts you've touched & how they gonna remember when you are not there.... #kashmirvalley #EverydayKashmir #LifeinKashmir #lifeinvalley #market #localmarket #hazratbal #kashmir #kashmiris #kashmirifood #potd #wintergetaway #winter19 #snowyvalley #snowday #igers #phiran #whenInKashmir #igkashmir #kashmirlovers #kashmirdiaries #grocery #travelwalk #Travelogue #streetgram

So I asked my local friend how to reach this place from Lal chowk. He suggested me to take an auto as I was traveling alone but I traveled like a local one. Hopped on a matador, got down at bohria Kadal, then asked people for the directions & like always every single people was helpful enough with a smiling face. That's the beauty of Kashmiri people. They are always ready to help as long as you ask for it with a happy face.

Creative woodworking has always been part of Kashmiri interiors . Lifestyles have changed over the period of time, however, contemporary interiors are mixture of modren and tradtional crafts in K. Khatamband is one of them. Khatamband is an art of Intricately Carved Ceilings in Kashmir and is an ancient craft of creating patterned designs that fit together to create false ceilings.This art was adapted centuries ago from Persia and has seen a revival in the valley. A ceiling decorated with khatamband wood work is considered the hallmark of luxury as per many people. Besides the amazing decorative function, khatamband also adds a layer of insulation to the ceiling, an important function during the cold winters in the valley. Khatamband is unique because it does not use nails or glue. Instead, it uses small, intricately carved pieces of soft wood which fit into each other like a puzzle creating the most ornate geometric patterns. This art seems to be an identity of every kashmiri house these days. Its popularity hasn’t waned since it was brought into practice generations ago. . . Thank you @saim_aaa for sharing a beautiful picture of your living room . It is truly a representative of modren Kashmiri Lifestyle ✨🌸✨ #kashmir#kashmiri#kashmirilifestyle#kashmiriinteriors #khatamband#lifestyle#lifestyleblogger #luxury#luxurylifestyle #kashmiriblog#kashmiriblogger#insta#instapic #instafit#instatravel #travelkashmir#lifeinkashmir#interiors#interiordesign #interiordesigner #interiordecorating #livingroom#livingroomdesign #livingroomdecor

Saffron flower field, Srinagar, Kashmir Ever wondered how Or where Saffron/ Zaffran comes from? Saffron flowers grow only 1 month in a given year in very few countries like Iran, Spain, Kashmir -India. Around 250 such flowers make 1 gm of Saffron that sell at close to INR350,000 per Kilo. As seen each flower has only 3 strands of Saffron. On tasting these red strands, they leave a yellow color behind (in milk, in biryani's) and yet they remain red when mixed with food. A very educational visit 😊 . . . #saffron #Srinagar #jammuandkashmir #saffronfields #saffronflower #nikond5300 #nikon #flowerbed #flower #flowerfield #macroshot #macro #purpleflower #visit_to_kashmir #lifeinkashmir #visitkashmir #traveltokashmir

Ladakh, Jammu & Kashmir Ladakh ("land of high passes") is a region in Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir that currently extends from the Kunlun mountain range to the main Great Himalayas to the south, inhabited by people of Indo-Aryan and Tibetan descent. It is one of the most sparsely populated regions in Jammu and Kashmir and its culture and history are closely related to that of Tibet. Ladakh is renowned for its remote mountain beauty and culture. #ladak #jammuandkashmir #zozila #zozilapass #cloudy #mountains #kunlunmountains #shotwithNote8 #note8photography #note8 #galaxynote8 #samsunggalaxynote8 #exploringindia #india #incredibleindia @samsungmobile @samsungindia #himalayanmountainrange #bluesky #clouds #feathers #greenmountains #mountains #mountainrange #leh #ladakh #traveltokashmir #lifeinkashmir #withgalaxy

Zojilla Pass, Jammu & Kashmir Driving here was a huge scare flight... not for the faint heart though.. honestly had a headache at the end of it 😜😁 Zoji La is a high mountain pass in Jammu and Kashmir, India, located on the Indian National Highway 1D between Srinagar and Leh in the western section of the Himalayan mountain range. Though often referred to as Zojila Pass in the foreign press, the correct English translation is Zoji Pass or simply Zojila, since the suffix 'La' itself means pass in several Himalayan languages.The usage of the word "La" can also be seen in the Khardung La, Fotu La, Namika La and Pensi La etc. In modern-day North Indian languages, 'La' (ला) and 'Darra' (दर्रा) are both used interchangeably to mean a mountain pass. Zoji La is 9 km (5.6 mi) from Sonamarg and provides a vital link between Ladakh and Kashmir Valley. It runs at an elevation of approximately 3,528 metres (11,575 ft), and is the second highest pass after Fotu La on the #Srinagar-Leh National Highway. It is often closed during winter, though the Border Roads Organisation (BRO) is working to extend traffic to most parts of the year. The Beacon Force unit of the BRO is responsible for clearing and maintenance of the road during Winter. During the Indo-Pakistani War of 1947, Zoji La was seized by Pakistani supported invaders in 1948 in their campaign to capture Ladakh. The pass was re-captured by Indian forces on 1 November in an assault codenamed Operation Bison, which achieved success primarily due to the surprise use of tanks, then the highest altitude at which tanks had operated in combat in the world. #zozilapass #zozila #mountains #scary #baltal #jammuandkashmir #sonmarg #sonmargvalley #sky #sun #exploringindia #india #incredibleindia @samsungmobile @samsungindia #snowmountain #himalayanmountainrange #bluesky #note8 #samsunggalaxynote8 #galaxynote8 #shotwithNote8 #traveltokashmir #lifeinkashmir
