Kashmir is also known as mini Switzerland of India because its valley is known to have all the beautiful characteristics of the Alps, which makes it a preferred travel destination. The state of Jammu and Kashmir is located on the mountainous range of the Himalayas. It boasts one of the highest mountain peaks in the world. Major tourist attractions like Srinagar, Gulmarg and Sonmarg are situated in the state of Jammu and Kashmir. Srinagar is the summer capital of the state and is served by the Srinagar airport which connects to major cities of India. There are several Srinagar packages depending on the season you visit this place. Along with Srinagar, you should also include Sonmarg holidays packages.

Gulmarg is a hill station known for its skiing resorts, located 50 km from Srinagar. You can easily find a hotel which can suit your likes and budget. The peak season to visit Gulmarg is from December to March. The place boasts the world’s second highest cable car which connects gondola main station to the shoulder of nearby Mt. Apharwat Summit, which stands at 13,780 ft. Gulmarg is also called as the winter sports capital of India. For ice sport lovers, a tour to Gulmarg should be on your travel wish list.

Sonmarg is a tourist destination situated 87 km from Srinagar; it is located along the backdrop of beautiful snow mountains. The climate of Sonmarg is very relaxing for tourists. Lakes such as Gadsar Lake and Gangabal Lake are prime attractions in Sonmarg. Here you can find fields of clean grass bounded by collection of alpine flowers. Sonmarg holidays can offer you a lot of breath taking views. A visit to Gulmarg and Sonmarg should be included into your Srinagar packages.

The Dal Lake is a well-known tourist attraction in Srinagar which houses the beautiful house boats. This area is also called as Kashmir Venice because of the similar looks. Therefore a stay in a house boat at the Dal Lake has to be in your Srinagar package. Not far from Gulmarg is Khilanmarg, which is a small valley 6 km far from Gulmarg. Winter ski runs are organized here. Gulmarg has a very different personality in winter when skiing lovers from all over the country come here to enjoy the adrenaline filled skiing experience and many other competitions that are held annually. Therefore, it is a must to try the skiing experience while on tour to Gulmarg. Sonmarg is the gateway for trekking to Amarnath cave passing through various mountain lakes such as Kishansar, Gadsar, Vishansar, Gangabal and Satsar. Trekking enthusiasts will surely love Sonmarg holidays. Gulmarg is crowded throughout the year due to its mesmerizing views during summer and the snow sports during the winter. So, a tour to Gulmarg is a must for those young crowds waiting for adventure.
