If its paradise you seek, head for Srinagar, a picturesque city with a bereathtaking landscape that is dominated by a beautiful lake. A shikara ride on the Dal Lake is of course a must while on a Srinagar tour. Visit the various gardens that dot the city.
From the Mughal Gardens to Nishat Bagh and from Shalimar Bagh to Chashmashahi, each garden has its distinct beauty. In the evening or early morning, stroll along the Boulevard to witness how the city wakes up to its enchanting mornings. During the day, trek up to Shankaracharya Mandir, a Shiva temple located on a hilltop and visit the Hazratbal Mosque, a pristine white structure where women are allowed only into the first part of the mosque.
To completely experience your Srinagar holidays, enjoy the local cuisine while you are there. Try Kahwah, a special green tea and sample seekh-tuji, a snack that the Khayaam region of the city is known for. For non-vegetarians, Kashmiri cuisine is truly a blessing with the variety making it difficult to make choices. Do sample Rogan-josh and Gushtaba.Your Srinagar tour is also the ideal time to shop for those oh-so-soft pashminas and dcor items like embroidered wall hangings. Most Srinagar holiday packages also offer the option of excursions to Pahalgam and Gulmarg.
