Day 1: Arrive Srinagar | Half day Sightseeing tour & Complimentary Shikara ride in Dal Lake
On your arrival at the Srinagar Airport, you will be welcomed by our representative who will assist and escort you to your waiting vehicle. From the airport it is a 35 minutes drive through the heart of New Srinagar city. The drive takes you past the Abdullah Bridge which connects the banks of the Jhelum River. You will be transferred to the hotel for check in.
Later proceed for a half day local sightseeing that includes a visit to the famous Mughal gardens of Nishat and Shalimar. Built in between a period of 14 years the two gardens are a heritage left behind by the erstwhile Mughals, whose taste for laying exquisite gardens was fascinating. With a backdrop of the sprawling Zabarwan Mountains, the gardens boast of green turfs, blooming flowers and cascading water fountains. We will explore the gardens & later in the evening go for a 60 Minutes Shikara ride in Dal Lake. This boat ride glides you past some wonderful vegetable gardens and aquatic life. Later return to the hotel & have dinner.
Overnight stay at hotel in Srinagar. (Dinner)
Note: The complimentary Shikara ride is in group. If you want to take private Shikara ride than the cost will be Rs. 500 for 60 minutes ride.
