The culture of Kashmir is as attractive as its land. Spring is the time when this winter land enjoys the chirping of birds and the wood lots are heavy with apple, grapes and pears. Kashmiri are simple people, blessed with the artistry of producing some of the rare hand woven carpets, Kashmiri embroidery and pottery. Shop for woolen carpets, exclusive Pashmina shawls, and most importantly the unique saffron grown here. Another way of unique shopping is from the floating markets (Shikaras selling items of daily use and souvenirs). While talking about Kashmir the famous Wazwan cuisine cannot be missed. This 36-course cuisine is as delightful as the folk culture of the people that is seen in their dances and songs. The fusion of the Roman, Greeks and Persian civilizations has largely effected the local culture of Kashmir where the women seem to adorn all the parts of their body with the traditional silver jewelery and men can be seen wearing the long and loose hanging Pheran. The amicable people of Kashmir are very much friendly with the tourists as well, and had given way to form Kashmir as a tourist destination. This is indeed the heaven on the earth and one cannot miss, this osmosis of the best of both the world - Heaven and Earth.
