Famed as the Summer Capital of Jammu & Kashmir, Srinagar is a beautiful city nestled by the banks of the Jhelum River. Elevated above 5000 feet, the summers are cool and winters face snowfall. The various water bodies like Dal Lake with its picturesque houseboats have earned Srinagar the name of “Venice of the East”.
As you lay back on the houseboats floating through the waters and look up at the infinite skies above, there is a sense of complete serenity. Nature is at its best in this place, graced by the colours of every season magnificently. There are sprawling gardens like Nishat Bagh and Chashma Shahi to stroll through.
Remnants of Mughal rule, Sher Garhi Palace and Gulab Bhavan no longer serve their intended purpose but are definitely sights to see. The 100 steps leading upto the Hindu Shankaracharya Temple are worth the climb as well. Prevalent structures here are the mosques like Jamia Masjid and Hazratbal Shrine. The latter is sacred as it preserves a hair relic of the Prophet Mohammed. Religious shrines aside, there’s a lot more to offer here like indulging in the famous Pashmina shawls from shops or the market boats. Kayaking, white water rafting, paragliding and trekking are exhilarating adventure sports to venture into.
An easily accessible place, regular flights from various cities like Delhi connect to Srinagar Airport. Many roads like National Highway 1A are also means of travelling there.
An embodiment of water, mountains and skies meeting, Srinagar is splendour of nature. This culturally and historically rich city always has tourists flocking.
