Ladhak & Kashmir 2010 - Day 13 - Sonmarg to Srinagar

Having spent a night in Sonmarg, we started for Srinagar the next morning.

The journey was scenic but as we entered the city of Srinagar, there was a slight degree of disillusionment as the mountains were no more and we found plain lands all around us. It wasn’t cold as in Ladakh, but almost as cool as Bangalore, perhaps a few degrees lower.

But where was the mob, where was the fire, where were the bullets and where was the bomb blast that was being reported in the news?
It was so calm and normal…

Our driver took us to a hotel close to Dal gate. The room was comfortable and pleasant. And we knew we were safe.
