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.
Start off your visit on the 27th (Fri): don't miss a visit to Shankaracharya Hill and then explore the activities along Nigeen Lake. Here are some ideas for day two: take in nature's colorful creations at Nishat Garden, then explore the activities along Dal Lake, and then take in the spiritual surroundings of Hazratbal.
