Srinagar, the capital of the state, houses a bountiful of tourist attraction places. So, holiday packages for Kashmir begin with visits to the world famous Dal Lake, on which you can go for a leisurely boat ride or stay in a house boat on the lake. You can visit the two beautiful Mughal gardens – Shalimar gardens and Nishat Bagh, in addition to many smaller lakes. Other important places to visit around Srinagar during Kashmir holiday packages are Pahalgam which is a picnic spot located at a distance of 96 km from Srinagar and Gulmarg which is situated at an altitude of 2730 m.

Places like Gulmarg and Sonamarg or Zanskar offer adventurous trekking routes.

Zanskar, located at a high altitude, is a trekker's heaven. During winter, Zanskar river freezes, thus giving it the name "Chadar," and is ideal for trekking. Gulmarg offers fun and thrill skiing on its beautiful snow filled slopes. As many rivers flow through Kashmir, it is an ideal place for river rafting.
