Summary: Visit Srinagar to escape the scorching summer and enjoy heavenly beauty of nature. This scenic heaven with salubrious weather and a range of tourism attractions dazzles all its visitors. Read this article to know what to do and see during a Srinagar tour.

Srinagar is the summer capital of Indian state of Jammu & Kashmir. Surrounded by various natural wonderments including snow-capped peaks, thick green forests, lovely waterfalls and shimmering streams, this beautiful city is nothing short of a heaven. Architectural brilliance and cultural extravaganzas in Srinagar are also dazzling and leave visitors enchanted.

Now, what to see while being on Srinagar tour? Well, a handful of options are there to choose from. Some much preferred choices are given below:

The Mughal Gardens: picturesque, pristine and panoramic, Mughal Gardens are like a gleaming pearl in crown of Srinagar tourism. Terraced lawns, cascading fountains, breathtaking views of Dale Lake and an enchanting variety of flowers and plants simply leave visitors stunned. Beauty of these gardens gets its best during spring.

Dal Lake: Tranquility and solace amid pristine beauty of waters and surrounding peaks is truly a treat for one’s eyes and senses. Go for a Shikara ride to enjoy scenic views and peaceful beauty of nature. Ask your rider to take the boat to the fountain and the village on the bank of the lake.

Hazratbal Mosque: Artistically built, this white mosque is worth visiting for those with sense of arts & cultures. Women are allowed only to the first half. Surrounding markets are quite alluring laden with a range of local artifacts.

Shankracharya Mandir: Located on a hilltop, this Hindu temple is dedicated to lord Shiva. The splendid architectural beauty and inspiring spiritualism is worthwhile to explore. No camera or cell phone is allowed in the temple. So leave them in the vehicle.

Apart from that, Pari Mahal, Nehru Garden, Shalimar Bagh and Nishant Bagh are other popular sites one must visit during Srinagar tour.

Now where to stay in Srinagar? Again plenty of options are there to choose from. Being a renowned travel destination, Srinagar boasts quality accommodation, with options ranging from up-market hotels to budget-friendly inns and an array of houseboat stay. Some highly preferred hotels in Srinagar include the Lalit Grand Palace, Blooming Dale Hotel, Silver Star Hotel, Hotel paradise and Hotel Comrade Inn. Well-furnished and equipped with modern facilities, houseboats are other good options to make your stay. They are reasonably priced and offer quality meals and lovingly hospitality to savor.

Srinagar is a year-round destination, though the best time to visit here is between May and September. The weather turns pleasant and the landscapes become enchanting at this time of year. Variety of adventures including trekking, bird watching and wildlife safari can be enjoyed during summer. However, the winter witnesses a magical charm with snow-capped mountains and numerous winter games in this region.

When you plan to visit Srinagar, make sure you book Srinagar hotels well in advance. A variety of Kashmir tour packages are available with inclusion of all tour facilities, ensuring travelers a delightful vacation with no hassle at all. Search some reliable travel sites to find the most suited deal.
