Present taxi rates in Srinagar?

I want to visit sonmarg, gulmarg and pahalgam from Srinagar. What would be the taxi rates this May 2012 on per day basis?

What would be the rate for a private taxi drop from Srinagar to Leh? Is there any better alternative for this trip?

Thanks Kashmir111 !

Any idea about the JKTDC accomodation ( Dak bunglow rooms) it is available for booking online. What would be the accomodation scene in Pahagam around may 20th?

There are JKSRTC bus between Srinagar and Pahalgam, but those are not deluxe bus.

Srinagar to Pahalgam taxi fare (Innova) would be Rs.2000 for bothway, for staying overnight Rs.300 will be charged extra as night stay allowance. The shared vehicle normally used by the local people. If you go by shared vehicle, you need to do break journey. Srinagar to Islamabad (1.5 hrs) and Islamabad to Pahalgam (1 hr). Location of JKTDC in Pahalgam is good. But you may have to compromise with their services.

Thanks Ashish. That seems quite reasonable I think. Where do you suggest is the best place to hire a taxi at these rates... I would prefer to spend 2 nights in Pahalgam & return early morning. Some suggestions for dhaba /street food(NonVeg) in srinagar & other places would be most welcome. I still remember the dhabas in Kolkata with their coal fired 'choolhaas' and the rustic & cheap food they served

specially the 'tarka'

Dear Mr Roy,

You really seem to be quite versed with J&K sightseeing stuff. I shall be grateful if you can provide help for my forthcoming visit to Srinagar, Gulmarg, Pahalgam w.e.f 12th - 18th May with my family :

How much time will local sightseeing take in taxi at Srinagar and charges for Esteem/Indigo.

Can i cover Srinagar- Gulmarg-Khilanmarg-Srinagar in 1 day with family ?

Is Sonmarg worth going for a 1 day trip ?

Which are good tourist places in Pahalgam which can be covered in 2.5 days.

Thanks

- Srinagar sightseeing will take maximum a full day. Start with Sankarachaya Temple > Chasmesahi > Nishat Bagh > Shahlimar Bagh > Hazratbal. Srinagar city tour = Rs 1300 (Indigo).

- Gulmarg (incl. Khilanmarg anf Affarwat) can be done in day trip from Srinagar.

- Yes, Sonmarg is highly recommendable. You can make it in a day trip from Srinagar.

- You can see Aru, Chandanwadi, Betaab Valley and Baisaran (Trek) around Pahalgam. Which can be done in a day or leisurely in two days. Visit Anantnag on your return way back to Srinagar.

I am truly grateful for the guidance Mr Ashis.

Can you pls let me know some good hotels where I can stay for 3 days at Srinagar (preferably near to Dal Lake) and Pahalgaon. My budget is approx 2.5K per day. We are 3 members (Myself, spouse and 7 year old daughter).

How much approx will be taxi charge by Indigo for 1 day sightseeing trip to Gulmarg then next day at Sonmarg and then at Pahalgaon.

With Regards

Nitin
