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 to go to Gulmarg and see Apharwat Peak, which is approximately 1h 15 min away. There's much more to do: explore the activities along Dal Lake, take in nature's colorful creations at Nishat Garden, delve into the distant past at Pari Mahal, and make a trip to Ghanta Ghar.

For ratings, traveler tips, other places to visit, and more tourist information, read Srinagar travel app .

Zurich, Switzerland to Srinagar is an approximately 17.5-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 4 hours traveling from Zurich to Srinagar. Prepare for somewhat warmer weather when traveling from Zurich in September: high temperatures in Srinagar hover around 30°C and lows are around 17°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 15th (Tue) to allow time to take a bus to Pahalgam.
