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.
Explore Srinagar's surroundings by going to Gulmarg (St Mary's Church & Gulmarg Backcountry). The adventure continues: contemplate the waterfront views at Dal Lake, explore the striking landscape at Sonamarg, explore the ancient world of Pari Mahal, and take in nature's colorful creations at Shalimar Bagh.
