     Pahalgam (Jammu and Kashmir): Following fresh snowfall, tourists have converged in large numbers at Pahalgam, a hundred kilometres from Srinagar, and located in the southeast of Kashmir valley. Pahalgam is surrounded by lofty mountains and is washed by gushing streams and rivulets. All these make it a perfect tourist spot. "It's beautiful here, especially after Monday's snowfall, the place has become more beautiful. Since the snow is fresh and soft, it's not slippery. And this is a good time to roam around and enjoy the landscapes." said Reshma, a tourist from New Delhi. Though Pahalgam is known as a summer tourist destination yet this time, scores of tourists gathered here to celebrate their Christmas and New Year holidays.
