Northermost state of India
, Jammu and Kashmir is crossed by the Himmalayan range. Surrounded by China
, this mountainous region is reputed for the beauty of its landscape. Nature lovers will enjoy it, especially in the south where Jammu plain
is separated from the Kashmir valley by the Pir Panjal massif and in the northeast where the Ladakh plateau is situated. The situation of this territory tugging on all sides and its decolonisation have made it a territory where the population is very diverse. Political troubles that have been going on since 1980 create a tense atmosphere, unadvised to tourists.
