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.
