About Srinagar

Srinagar is the summer capital of Jammu and Kashmir. It is situated on the banks of the river Jhelum and surrounded by beautiful lakes like Dal, Nagin and Anchar whose glittering waters reflecting the rays of the sun is a sight to behold. The vividly vibrant houseboats sailing along the scenic Dal Lake against the backdrop of the majestic Himalayan mountains makes Srinagar a dream destination for every traveler.

The summer time April to September is ideal for sightseeing and is the peak tourist season with a maximum temperature of 30 C and a minimum well below 14 C. It is an excellent time to visit the lakes and beautiful gardens when the natural beauty of Srinagar is at its peak. The winters on the other hand is extremely cold, heavy rainfall occurs and results in road blockages and disrupting road and air connectivity with rest of the country.

Srinagar is a popular tourist destination. The summers are excellent for visiting the lakes and beautiful gardens and the natural beauty is at its pinnacle during this season. The winters on the other hand is extremely cold and freezing and not suitable for holidaying. Heavy snowfall occur during the winters but results in road blockages and disrupting road and air connectivity with rest of the country.

This city with almost a million inhabitants is most famous with the tourists for the houseboats that provide a scenic view of Dal, Anchar and Nageen Lake. The most perfect picture of a shikara is the florist's shikara, in which the florist carries ied flowers for sale. The town has some other splendid attractions, which in recent years have once again been open to visitors after long periods of being off-limits. Chief amongst these are two of the most revered mosques, Jamia Masjid, deep in the heart of the atmospheric Old City, and the lakeside Hazratbal. Another important Islamic place of worship is the Sufi shrine of Makhdoom Sahib, halfway up to the inaccessible fort.

The most important Hindu temple is the Shankaracharya Mandir, atop a hill overlooking Dal Lake.Of the city's secular sights, options include the engaging Sri Pratap Singh Museum and the Mughal pleasure gardens that surround the lake, such as Shalimar Bagh and Nishat Bagh. Lake side views, magnificent sunsets, floating markets, verdant greens, authentic Kashmiri cuisine & hospitable locals are just some of the reasons why tourists from all over the globe flock to this 'Paradise on Earth'. Indulge in shopping for the famous Pashmina shawls and Kashmiri handicrafts & last but not the least, enjoy some adrenaline rushing activities like skiing, trekking, white water rafting, paragliding, camping and Kayaking.
