Verinag Spring - source of Jhelum River
July 22, 2021 4:23am CST
Jhelum river that has a length of around 450 miles flows through Kashmir into a part of Pakistan. We were fortunate to visit the source of this river - Verinag Spring in Anantnag, Sirnagar - ;literally the mouth of the river. We could see a school of trout fish swimming in there. The garden around was a beautiful sight. We spent a few hours there. That is the advantage of joing package tours as they know how to pack sight seeing in the limited time that one has Do you prefer package or personal tours. .

@allknowing I have been on packaged tours too but most were within India and before my marriage. My husband does not like to be rushed on a vacation. He chooses to visit one place at luxury. I know it is not economical but then it is his money and he loves to have the vacation his way. Well, no tour package had a day of cycling around the Netherlands or just going for seeing some tourist spot at your preferred time and relaxing and enjoying in Hotel rest time. He wants vacation to be like a vacation. He is a premium member of the Mariot group of Hotels. And we get really good accommodations with that. We have been to Phuket few times for 10 days. We just love that independent cottage that we get that is double the size od our home and we have our own swimming pool. I often suggest him to go economical and cover more in less, But he prefers it this way. He enjoys exploring routes and other stuff. And we enjoy driving once we are out of India.
We have never gone on personal tours but I do know we get to stay at 5 star hotels while on package tours which certainly would be expensive if we did it on our own. They take care of all the nitty gritty. Their representative travels with us and should we get into difficult situations whatever they are we know we will get help.
