Known for its beautiful landscapes and famed lakes, Jammu and Kashmir is mesmerising in every season. As temperatures dropped, the valley received its first spell of snow blanketing much of the region. The snow-capped mountains and frosted trees give the valley its stunning landscapes and picturesque views.

These 15 mesmerising pictures of Srinagar covered in snow perfectly depict why the region is known as heaven on earth.
