Srinagar

Stunningly beautiful locales in the midst of apparent turmoil and conflict; Srinagar has remained the epitome of everything Kashmiri for generations. Although a lot safer than it was in the early 2000s, expect patrolling soldiers past serene Mughal gardens (the forces are now here more to keep the odd rally under control). Terraced lawns overlook the tranquil Dal Lake with numerous Shikaras floating past gently billowing embroidered curtains of houseboats.

Things to do

Gulmarg day visit-The' skiing destination every winter, Gulmarg is the 'valley of flowers' in summer. A delightful hour and a half's drive from Srinagar, breathtaking views lead you to this quaint valley surrounded by snow-capped mountains. Rolling meadows with streams bubbling past scores of wildflowers andpine,past fir trees silhouetted against the sky, make Gulmarg Kashmir's best-known secret.

Pahalgam and Bataab valley day visit-A perfect little town in the midst of superb coniferous forests, Pahalgam is clearly the last word in tranquillity. An approximately 96-kilometre drive from Srinagar, past saffron fields, apple orchards and sulphur springs, the approach to Pahalgam is a vision to behold.

Sonmarg day visit-Here besides the Nallah Sindh, set against snow capped mountains and clear blue skies, the 'meadow of gold' comes to life.A mere three-hour drive from Srinagar,lies a reminder of times gone by - before you had wi-fi at every coffee shop and crossing a road in town was never an issue with mortality.

Best time to visit March to October

Freezing winters warm up mid-March and give way to lovely gardens of flowers and undulating green meadows. This pleasant season stays on through early September for fruit harvest season. Mid-September turns everything a lovely golden-green as leaves start falling before the first snowfall in late November. Winter valleys remain white with regular intervals of snow till late February.
