Srinagar (5000+ ft asl) is an excellent Flight getaway ex-Mumbai / Delhi for guests looking to relax, rejuvenate and take a peek into Kashmir’s most visited destination.

Srinagar has been a memorable part of many honeymooners in 1960s, 70s and early 80s. Its not uncommon for them to come back for a nostalgia trip. The ambience around is so relaxing that It’s very common to have Senior citizens, writers, stressed corporate executives.

Srinagar has the best set of hotels in Kashmir (Luxury lakeside hotels, charming family managed hotels, houseboats, homestays) and additionally has the option of staying in a houseboat and enjoying a unique personalized stay experience.

From the point of view of “What to do”, sightseeing / activities option comprises Mughal Gardens, Golf (Summer), Shankracharya temple, Shikara ride, Hazratbal Mosque, few view points and Avantipur ruins (29 kms).

Day trips to Gulmarg (50 kms) and Sonamarg (85 kms) are an option too. Both offer similar panoramas of close range Himalaya views and so either of the two could be visited. Gulmarg having the Cable Car ride and being a known ski resort (in winter) is more popular of the two.

Note: A Srinagar getaway is an option anytime of the year. April – Nov will offer the best experience (winter is very cold and usually the weather is unpredictable, and is recommended for guests looking for a winter experience only).
