Srinagar

The focus lies mainly on the waters in Srinagar, with the river and lakes of the city dotted with colorful houseboats and making the relatively cool summer capital a popular tourist destination.
Step out of Srinagar with an excursion to Betaab Valley in Pahalgam--about 1h 55 min away. There's still lots to do: explore the activities along Dal Lake, explore the striking landscape at Sonamarg, make a trip to Shankaracharya Hill, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Durga Nag Temple.

To find photos, reviews, maps, and tourist information, go to the Srinagar trip planner.

You can fly from Leh to Srinagar in 1.5 hours. Another option is to drive. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 20th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
