Once you arrive at the airport, meet the cab driver and check-in at the hotel. Take the afternoon to proceed for the local sightseeing. Take a visit to the Mughal Gardens — Nishant Bagh and Shalimar Bagh. Similar to the magnificent Taj Mahal built by Shah Jahan for his wife Mumtaj Mahal, his father built the Shalimar Bagh for his wife, Noor-E-Jahan. Stroll in this garden of love, sometimes also referred to as the ‘abode of love and pleasure’, on the shore of the Dal Lake.
Make a visit to the horses and then a mild trek to the Baisan Valley to see for yourself the amount of beauty Mother Nature has bestowed upon this place. After that, proceed for a drive through Aru Valley and Chandanwadi, but at your own cost because only the local cars are allowed here. Take a walk along the Liddar Stream towards Pahalgam from the Aru Village, something that is highly recommended to any nature lover. Later, return to Srinagar and dine at your hotel.
vAfter your breakfast, drive to Gulmarg, also known as the Meadow of Flowers. At 2730 meters above sea-level, it offers a spectacular view of the snow-capped mountain peaks, conifer trees and the beautiful green meadows. It is also home to the highest golf course! Once you’re done with that, you can spend your time whichever way you want. Take the time to enjoy a sledge ride on the snow-covered slopes, or for a gondola ride or even a cable car ride. All these rides are not paid. Have your dinner later and spend a night in a houseboat.
