Kashmir: the Warmest Place on earth

by duncanr

in the West, media reports from Kashmir tend to focus on civil unrest, violence, terrorism but the tourism dept of Jammu and Kashmir would like folk to know there is more to the region than that

they have released a video featuring a young couple exploring the stunning scenery, visiting religious sites, and experiencing the friendliness and hospitality of Kashmiris, in the company of their local guide

[watch the whole video for the twist at the end]

and the twist is that when . . .

the young lad takes his phone off ‘silent’ he finds that the hotel has been trying to contact him to find out where he has disappeared to after they arranged a taxi and a guide for him – the man they assumed was their guide when they left the hotel – and who had been so helpful and hospitable – was just a local man sent by his wife to do some shopping
