    Beautiful Shiva temple on the hill with picturesque view of Srinagar. A must visit place in Srinagar. You have to climb almost 300 steps to reach the temple. Temple stone is very cold to keep a step upon.

    Today is my one of the best day of my life that place which I have only seen in movies. I have personally experienced, and it was mesmerizing to be honest with you the view from the lake was outstanding, the entire Himalayas covered with ice was amazing. Actually, it’s very difficult to describe experience all together.

    The average rate of Shikara boat is something Rs.2500. For all the areas especially local markets, and Mina bazaar. When you start your journey from the jetty the local floating shop will approach you and they will sell many things which is good also and you can buy it with a genuine rate you can bargain as well. You can take it as a souvenir or a gift to your friends and family.

    We spent a Prox Rs.10,000 for the entire experience during our boat ride. However, we have bought a lot of things for our friends and family. Food is pretty expensive but that’s completely fine once in a while in the experience.

    Please do visit and support our Indian tourism.

    The view from height is mesmerising and takes away your breath when you see absolutely picture perfect view with your eyes

    It’s nicely maintained and organised doorway unlike many other places in India where rush push doesn’t happen at all staffs are well behaved guides you properly too.

    Gulmerg is very beautiful hill Station in Kashmir. In winter is covered by Snow. Gondola ride is very exciting experience. Maharaja palace, Shiva temple,Golf course, Snow adventure games, church etc many more.... are very beautiful.
    Bota Pathri (Gulmerg wildlife sanctuary) is situated about 12 KM from Gulmerg is also very beautiful.
    In summer season strawberry 🍓 valley may be memorable destination.

    The valley goes through the heart of the highest mountain on earth and allows visitors to have a view on sharp and snow covered peaks while passing by emerald lakes and green hills populated with white sheep herds. Breath stopping views, fresh air and opportunity to de-tach.

    This is a second biggest lake in Srinagar and is less crowded than Dal lake. We stayed in a houseboat in this lake and it was a nice stay.

    Just like all the gardens in Kashmir, this is another well maintained garden with beautiful flowers all over. The tourist & locals footfall over here is more and hence it is more crowded. There are some steps to be climbed to get into the park and hence can be tiring for a senior citizen.
    The view of the dal lake from the garden is another plus point.

    This is a lesser known place as compared to Gulmarg and Pehelgam but no less beautiful than the others. The name originates from a legend but means MILK flowing through STONES. It's 45 km from Srinagar and you can reach there easily by a taxi. From the parking you need to take a horse ride or another local taxi. You need to negotiate hard for the taxi ride. As you go towards highest point, you can enjoy the nature with vast open grazing grounds, green lawns and snow peak mountains in the surrounding. The scenery is as beautiful as in Scotland or in Austria or Switzerland. There are eateries where you can have your food. There are stay options as well which we don't explore. Highly recommended place.

    We were there in a local Innova cab (pain by itself due to high prices by union dictated cabs) and it is definitely worth going for. In all these scenic places, it is about mountains, trees, some rivulet and some ponies , and a meadow and a valley - once you see one, the others are not exciting by itself. But Aru is worth going to spend an hour.

    The day we planned to visit Sinthan top, it started raining so stayed at the JKTDC Daksum guesthouse which we had pre-booked. Next morning there was a landslide due to the rains but we waited and luckily it got cleared and we set out in our pre-booked vehicle. The road is not so good in some places because of the landslide, but after going a little head the roads get better. The scenery & view on the way is breathtaking. When we reached Sinthan top (1 hour drive from Daksum), we were the only tourists at this place and it was gorgeous and freezing cold, but worth the trip.
    Note : Tourists need to be mindful not to litter (we were surprised to see quite a lot of litter here).

    This valley is beautiful. Snowpeak mountains, water bodies and big well maintained lawns. Must visit attraction if you are in Pehelgam. It's popular and crowded in season. Its name is taken from a Hindi movie "Betaab" which popularised this valley.

    We went from sonamarg till Zojilla war memorial via zojilla pass.
    One has to take the car from taxi stand.Usually they quote double the price.We paid 4000 rs finally.
    The drive is quite scenic,at the same time risky and dangerous too.Only thrill and adventure seekers should go for this drive.Though,the local drivers are quite skilled.Thats the reason one doesnot mind paying them the hefty amount.
    Be sure to carry warm clothes at temperature at the war memorial can be lower than sonamarg.

    After two years ban on Yatra this year govt allowed Amarnath Yatra from 30 June to 11 August 22 .We were four in the team including my wife . We are from Bangladesh . From our country we couldn't do registration . However we decided to go to Srinagar and Get it .
    We got registration on 14 July and moved to Nunuwan base camp on 15 July . Due to bad weather on 16 July Yatra was postponed .On 17 we moved from Pohelgam to Chandanwadi at 05 am . By 07 am we cleared Chandan wadi gate . We hired horse each with 8000 rupee for going and coming .By 09 am we started our journey . After two km we came across Pisu top the scary hill. It is 11000 feet high . Its narrow stair stone route .All the route is filled with double way traffic of pedesterenian ,horses and duli .After taking couple of minutes rest we proceded to Sheesh nag . Now geography is changing . Instead of green top hills its all rocky mountain . After Sheeshnag we crossed Goneshtop ,14800 feet height .By 0430 we reached Panchtarani .
    We spent the night in tent and had food in Vandara ( free food distribution centre). Next morning at 0430 am we started for Amarnath cave by 0430 am . It was all dark and we were climbing the hills on horse back .By 0630 we reached the first market . From there we walked upto Temple . One needs to climb many stairs to reach temple . Al of us could reach and had darshan .
