Srinagar Travel Guide

Overview

“If there is paradise on earth, it is here, it is here, it is here…” Mughal emperor Jahangir aptly described the beauty of Srinagar (in Jammu and Kashmir) through these lines. Any time of the year is perfect for a visit to the beautiful valley. Be it the gorgeous Tulip garden, or the well laid out Shalimar and Nishat Bagh, every sight will take your breath away. Stay in a houseboat and take a romantic shikara ride at the sweeping Dal Lake or the Nagin Lake. Find calm and serenity at the famous Hazratbal shrine, Shankaracharya temple and the magnificent Jama Masjid. Irrespective of the popular belief that the city is unsafe for tourists, you will find that it is surprisingly safer than most cities in India. Foodies enjoy Kashmiri wazwan like Gushtaba, Rista, Kebabs, and Tabak Maaz to name a few. Do visit the tiny bakeries and enjoy more than 20 varieties of local bread like Sheermal, Chochwor, Bakerkhwani etc. Shoppers cannot do away without handpicked embroidered items, carpets, cricket bats, dry fruits and saffron. If you still have some time left visit the nearby tourist destinations of Pahalgam, Sonemarg, Gulmarg, Wular Lake and Awantipura on India day tour to Srinagar.
