1. Re: 5 Days Trip In Srinagar ..advice on itinerary

Dear Ankur,

Out of my experience from my recent visit following things should be kept in mind.

a.Stay as less as possible in Srinagar as there is nothing unique in Srinagar other than House boat staying experience and the Dal Lake Shikaara Visit.

b.Fresh snow can be seen in Zero point of Sonmarg .The snow on 2nd phase gandola in gulmarg is has gone dirty .

c. Sun sets after 7.30 .Day light persists upto 8 PM

I would suggest following Itinerary

17th- Arriva and stay in House boat .Shikara ride and local sightseeing

18th Srinagar to Pahalgam .Visit to Baisaran,Kashmir valley on Pony.Aru Betaab by Local Taxi

19th Pahalgam to Gulmarg .Enroute Visit Awantipura Ruins,MAttan Temple.

20th .Gulmarg Gandola if u wish.Gulmarg to Srinagar

21st Day trip to Sonamarg and zero point,

22nd Fly out

Doodhpatri can be possible on the mentioned date. Doodhpatri is more or less like Pahalgam and Gulmarg.If you have enough time after covering all the important locations then it is advisable .

Hi Ankur G,

Both are different but I would suggest Yusmarg its a beautiful valley.

On the way you can also visit a famous sufi shrine ..CHRAR-E-SHARIEF...and back to Srinagar.
