Alluring Srinagar Attractions of Srinagar

Dal Lake

Dal Lake

The poster child of Kashmir Tourism Dal Lake is a vast clear sheet of water mirroring the looming Pir Panjal peaks. The best way to experience the charms of Dal is to stay in a houseboat on the lake. Built traditionally with all modern amenities, these colorful houseboats exude the opulence of the lost royal era. Go for a Shikara ride on the lake, visit the beautiful Char Chinari Island, buy some flowers at the floating market, and soak in the idyllic ambiance of Dal.

The Mughal Gardens

The Mughal Gardens

Established during the Mughal era, and blossoming through the ages, these royal gardens are fine specimens of artistic landscaping and elaborate architecture blended with natural splendor. The three gardens- Shalimar, Nishat, and Chashm-e-Shahi, set on the banks of Jhelum with snowy peaks in the backdrop, are a shutterbug’s delight.

Shankaracharya Temple

Shankaracharya Temple

This 11th century Shiva temple stands at the top of Shankaracharya Hill that is regarded as the oldest site in Srinagar, dating back to 250 BC. The wooded hill offers you breathtaking views of the valley sprawled at its feet.

Indira Gandhi Memorial Tulip Garden

Indira Gandhi Memorial Tulip Garden

Spread over an expanse of over 26 acres, this is the largest tulip garden in Asia. Set by the glittering waters of Dal with Zarbawan range in the backdrop, this beautiful garden is an endless rainbow of gorgeous tulips. Its large variety of tulips certainly gives the gardens of the Netherlands a run for their money.

- Memorable Experience !

Caper Travel designed a three week tour to Rajasthan and Goa for four of us in a private car during March. The driver, guides and everyone associated with the organisation were professional, reliable and punctual! We had an amazing time, made even better because of the good accomodation choices and extra additions, such as elephant and camel ride.
Thank you so much Caper for giving us a truly memorable experience of your beautiful country!
