Srinagar

— 3 nights

Kashmiri Venice

The focus lies mainly on the waters in Srinagar, with the river and lakes of the city dotted with colorful houseboats and making the relatively cool summer capital a popular tourist destination.
Explore hidden gems such as Nature & Wildlife Tours and Hazara Arts. Attractions like Nigeen Lake and Shalimar Bagh make great kid-friendly stops. There's much more to do: admire the natural beauty at Nishat Garden, explore the ancient world of Pari Mahal, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Durga Nag Temple.
