Description
This book called ‘Kashmir’ was written at the request of Edward Molyneux. Younghusband’s descriptions went hand in hand with his paintings of the Valley by Molyneux. In the book, Younghusband declared his immense admiration of the natural beauty of Kashmir and its history. The book does not deal with the whole Kashmir state, which includes many outlying provinces, but with Kashmir Proper, with the world renowned valley of Kashmir, a saucer shaped value with a length of 84 miles, a breadth of 20 to 25 miles and a mean height of 5600 feet above sea level, set in the very heart of the Himalaya and corresponding in latitude to Damascus, to Fez in Morocco and to South Carolina. The country with which one is most apt to compare it is, naturally, Switzerland. And Switzerland, indeed, has many charms and a combination of lake and mountain in which it excels Kashmir. But it is built on a smaller scale. There is not the same wide sweep of snow clad mountains. There is no place where one can see a complete circle of snowy mountains surrounding a plain of anything like the length and breadth of the Kashmir valley, for the main valleys of Switzerland are like the side valleys of Kashmir. And above everything there is not behind Switzerland what there is at the back of Kashmir and visible in glimpses from the southern side,—a region of stupendous mountains surpassing every other in the world.
