Environment of Kashmir

Kashmir is a cheerful mix of the powerful quality of mountains, of dazzling meadows and woodlands. The River Jhelum wanders its unfaltering course through corn-fields into the heart of the Srinagar city and, onwards, till it surges headlong through the glaring crevasses, and dashing against rocks joins the Arabian Sea through the fields of Punjab.

The passerby will discover nature wild and energetic wherever he may go in the nation. The mountains give one of a kind appeal to the area and in this part of its characteristic excellence, Kashmir even exceeds expectations the tremendously revered Switzerland. To an explorer hailing from the fields or different parts of India and the world, acquainted with the courses driving into Kashmir, the entire range of towering extents opens up before his eyes when he ventures up the Pir Panchal whose crests ascend more than 15,000 feet on the South-West of the nation.

The regular surroundings of Kashmir unfold themselves on the trip both through the Banihal and the Jhelum Valley streets. Here he watches a sharp change of scene.

From Pir Panchal range further North, the open lush high countries of Tosa Maidan (14,000 ft. high) get the attention. The Pastures of this inconceivable good country are the general frequents of the bright, simple shepherds who raise their groups for brushing. Further Northwest is the Kazi Nag range – the home of the Markhor. It stands 12,125 feet high and is snow-shrouded with inclines covered with thick backwoods. The towering top of Nanga Parbat (26, 620 ft. high) remains as a sentinel guarding, figuratively speaking, the Valley on this side. It is a forcing sight. Far from here are seen the Karakoram runs otherwise called Mustagh, with some of its crests ascending more than 25,000 ft and among them the world celebrated K2 (more than 28,000 ft.), the second most astounding on the planet, emerges strikingly in its mountain eminence.

To the east of the valley stands the respectable, snow-clad crest of Haramukh (16,903 ft.) sitting above it. The renowned Gangabal pool of Haramukh is viewed as consecrated by Kashmiri Hindus to the same degree as Haridwar is held in India. Here likewise Saussurea Sacra develops in bounty. An alternate momentous top in the east seen everywhere throughout the city is Mahadev (13,000 ft.). in Summer explorers climb this crest. On the lower sides of this mountain, one runs over a herb Macrotomia Benthami in wild bounty. This herb is remarkable as Kah zaban or Gaw Zaban. It is much of the time endorsed by the nearby doctors to sickly persons.

On the South of the Valley, the tops of Amar Nath and Kolahoi springing from the same massif are discovered noticeable. Amar Nath stands 17, 321 feet high and Kolahoi 17,800 feet. Kolahoi is otherwise called Gwash Brari. At first light the brilliant beams of the sun fall on this cone-like crest and the offensive glare of the stunning snows is a sight. Here and there on this range, one is pulled in by wild effortless blooms, wild roses, poppies, anemones and hosts of other obscure botanical Shikaras on Dal Lake.

It is intriguing to watch the hues these extents lavishly show at specific hours of the day. These are impossible to miss to Kashmir mountains and are suitably depicted by Sir Walter Lawrence accordingly: "It would be hard to depict the hues which are seen on the Kashmir mountains. In ahead of schedule morning they are regularly a sensitive semi-straightforward violet alleviated against a saffron sky, and with light vapor sticking round their peaks. At that point the rising Sun extends the shadows, and creates sharp diagrams and solid entries of purple and indigo in the profound gorges. Later on, it is about all blue and lavender, with white snow crests and edges under a vertical sun, and as the evening wears on, these get to be wealthier violet and pale bronze, continuously changing to rose and pink with, yellow or orange snow, till the last beams of the sun have gone, leaving the mountains colored a bronzed ruby with the snows demonstrating a pale velvety by difference."

For its crisp water lakes and tarns, Kashmir is known all the world over. Those lying in the valley against the beguiling mountain foundation are : the Wular Lake, the Dal Lake and the Manasbal lake. The Wular is the biggest crisp water lake in India and as indicated by a few, maybe in Asia as well. It is 121 miles in length and 5 miles wide. It misleads the north-cast of the valley with mountains ignoring it.

The Dal Lake lies on suburbia of Srinagar in the east. It is at the foot of the mountain range. The lake is 4 miles in length and 11 miles expansive. Against Shikaras on Dal Lake, the mountain foundation which is reflected in its smooth spread and encased by trees the lake looks great. In summer, it is a heaven for guests who float over its waters in shikaras and houseboats.

The Manasbal lake is the deepest lake in the nation. Its greenish-blue waters are wondrous and excellent. Other than these lakes, which are bolstered by the dissolving snows from the mountains, there are hosts of mountain tarns structure glared by the frigid activity and other wonderful exercises of reach nature. There are a few glacial masses on Haramoukh. On the South side they just dive to around 13,500 ft., yet adjust the North 1,500 ft lower. They are nourished by the extensive snow fields on the summit, which are of extraordinary thickness. The snow bluffs on the center top demonstrate a vertical thickness of almost 200 feet. In there seen all the encompassing valleys.

There are lakelets changing in size from unimportant lakes to sheets of water a mile or something like that long and quarter a mile expansive, the majority of these happen at a stature of 11,500 feet. There can be probably they are all due somehow to chilly activity, and that they are not of extremely remote age. Tydall brings up that an icy mass 900 feet profound would create a vertical weight of 486, 000 lbs. upon each square creep of its cot. However the little ice sheet on the shoulders gone, of such mountains as Haramoukh or Tutakuthi descending from Khardungla to Leh, the most noteworthy motorable street on the planet (18,380 ft.) would not surpass 200 feet in thickness, and would not be equipped for unearthing hard shakes underneath. So the various tarns and lakes may be claim viewed as because of the arrangement of dikes crosswise over line of seepage. At times such dikes may have been created by the store of torrential slide garbage from a slideslope or by the development of a side glacial mass with its sidelong moraines.

The lakes and lakelets found in upper valleys around Haramukh mountain are Gangabal, Lool Gool and Sarbal. They are at a rise of almost 12,000 feet above ocean level. The gleaming waters loan magnificence to the Gangabal Lake, which remains at a rise of 11,800 feet. To the South east of the Pir Panchal extent lies the lake Konsar Nag (12,800 feet) encompassed by three tops. Its is bolstered by icy masses. In the spring and summer, the water is some 40-ft higher than in winter. In the spring, its surface is said to be secured with chunks of ice, which are driven about by the wind.

In the Liddar Valley, vast ice sheets are watched. On the mountain scope of this Valley, the ice sheets are found in Kolahoi. As indicated by Dr. Neve " one ice sheet is around five miles long and descends as low as 11,000 feet" From here to the cast on the best approach to Amar Nath cavern lies the well known Shesh Nag at a rise of 14,000 feet. Glacial masses are noticeable around there.

Coming into the Valley legitimate, we find the solidified pool of Alapathar or Apharwat, well over Khilanmarg. Blossoms of rainbow hues are found in wild abundance here. The mountain tarn remains at the stature of around 12,500 feet. It is said to be 500 yards in length and 150 yards wide. The surroundings are severe and wild. It is famous frequent of travelers.

The closest tarn to the city is that of Harwan on the slants of Mahadev Mountain around a mile and a half further far from the Moghul arrangement Shalimar. The wellspring of its new water is Tarsar,a lake on the Amar Nath Mountain. Harwan looks delightful in its sylvan surroundings. This tarn is the boss wellspring of water supply to the city.

Other than the above specified lakes and lakelets, there are scores of tarns and glacial masses found in the mountain runs around the Gurais valley, Ladakh and Karakorams. Kashmir is rich in timberlands. An assortment of spruce, stately trees some of which are towering masses, growin them, for example, Blue Pine, silver Fir, Himalayan spruce, Birch, Maple, Beech, Hazel and wild Oak. All the mountains are covered with thick woodlands, which, other than giving appeal and stimulating aroma to the climate
