You can dine out in luxurious restaurants, dig into local cuisines or order any lip-smacking dish of any kind. Shopaholics can either walk into posh markets or browse through local or antique items in the local bazaar. Houseboat rides in Shikaras (on the Dal Lake) is a must under your holiday package for Kashmir. The picturesque beauty, snow-capped hills in the backdrop and the occasional call of a melodious cuckoo will evoke a lot of nostalgia. There is a lot of sporting activities for the adventure junkies including angling, surfing, kayaking and canoeing.
