Welcome to our backyard, Kashmir.
In the Northern Hemisphere, the Siberian High – a huge accumulation of cold air over Lake Baikal in Siberia – is responsible for cold weather across much of the region, from Italy to the Philippines. During winter, these cold weather systems travel across the Siberian Desert through Pakistan, colliding with the Himalayan Pir Panjal mountain range in Kashmir, transforming Gulmarg into the ultimate winter playground. Hidden at even higher altitudes are glacial lakes that freeze over in late autumn. Beneath the frozen surface, breeding season starts for numerous species of wild trout and freshwater fish.
When spring arrives, the snow melts, feeding the Kashmir Valley’s streams and rivers with glacial water, flowing through the Indo-Gangetic Plains to India’s most sacred river, the Ganges. Kashmir’s flora and fauna awakens, with black bears emerging from hibernation to gorge on Golden Mahseer whilst snow leopards hunt grass-fed livestock. With spring, shepherds begin herding their flocks through green Himalayan pastures, welcoming the next eight months of warm weather.
