Why is it not Snowing in Kashmir?

There are mainly two reasons for not Snowing in Kashmir, One being the Nino Effect, which is a climatic phenomenon that involves the warming of sea surface temperatures in the Pacific Ocean. Which then disrupts global weather patterns, leading to reduced snowfall in the Kashmir. Second one, being global warming. A lot of people also think that it happens every decade once or twice so we don’t need to worry about it. Untill then let’s enjoy what we still have which is the Sinthan Top

Journey to Sinthan Top

Our Journey began when we left Srinagar to reach Sinthan top, It took us approximately 3 hours to reach. Along the way, we saw a unique thing which is an emergency plane landing strip right on the highway. After travelling for a while in our car we reached at the main market of Anantnag. It is a good place to pack something to eat as our journey was a long one. Anantnag market has a beautiful clock tower also called “Ghanta Ghar”. At Anantnag we packed some snacks and bought some fresh fruits.

After leaving Anantnag main market, We continued to reach our destination. But we notice that there are a lot of places that you can visit while reaching to Sinthan top. One of which is the “Temple Samadhi Mirza Kak Ji” It is a beautiful temple which is on the way. If you are a spiritual person then this place is worth stopping for a while. To find this landmark you can ask anyone when you would be reaching Kokernag , also we found a board which also shows you the location of the temple. After you can visit a Kokernag Park which is a beautiful place for a picnic, also there is a trout fishing farm that you can visit.

If you are feeling hungry then you can stop at a local tea shop which is called “Davoodia Tea Stall”. It is a small dhaba which offers you tea, aloo parathas, maggi and Chola puri. We stopped at this spot and had good quality aloo parathas also in a very affordable price. If you are visiting surely stop at this place and take a break. After this we reached the place called Daksum its is a beautiful place with river on the side. We also stopped at a green water bridge which was on the way which is also a great stop to stop. If you have lunch with you, you guys can stop here and have your lunch with an amazing touch of nature to it. The peaceful sound of water and scenery makes it very beautiful. After travelling for a while on zigzag roads climbing up the hill we finally reached our destination which is The Sinthan Top.
