Kashmir has a variety of terrains ranging from lakes, snow-capped mountains, coniferous kissed hills to glacier-fed rivers. On one hand, Kashmir is covered with wild untouched terrain, and on the other, there are fields of saffron and orchards of apples awaiting their full bloom. They have a variety of flowers that are a show in itself.

A holiday spent with a few bunches of people close to your heart is more than enough to satiate the traveler and explorer in you. The most interesting part is that 

How to reach Kashmir?

You can book a cab or a taxi to go to Kasol from the Bhuntar airport which is a mere 31 km and will take you about 1 hour to reach there.

For tourists coming from other states, you can take a flight to Indira Gandhi International Airport in Delhi. From there, you can either opt for a bus, cab (540 km with a 12-14 hours journey) or take another flight from IGI Airport to Bhuntar and reach Kasol similarly as above.

If you are planning to travel by train, the nearest station would be Chandigarh Railway Station which is around 296 Km from Kasol. You can book cabs from Chandigarh or get public or government buses running from Chandigarh to Manali which might take around 9-10 hours to reach Manali, and then you can easily get any shared cab to Kasol. 

Although Kasol does not have its own railway station if you are dedicated to travel by train and also want to experience the railways between the mountains, then you can book your seats till Joginder Nagar Railway Station, which is around 144 Km away from the village of Kasol. You can take a cab from the station to reach Kasol or a bus from the Joginder Nagar Bus Stand towards Manikaran which should take about 4.5 to 5 hours.
