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.

The adventure continues: explore the activities along Nigeen Lake, admire the natural beauty at Shalimar Bagh, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Hazratbal, and don't miss a visit to Hari Parbat.
