Planning for a Kashmir tour and don’t know what to do there? Here is our list of top 5 things that every tourist must do during his Kashmir vacation.
Kashmir is a remarkable holiday destination and enjoys a cult status amongst vacationers and honeymooners. So, if you are yet to step foot on the Kashmiri soil, then you must fix an appointment with the state this summer. Though the variety and disparity which Kashmir tour offers is incomparable, still here are 5 things you dare not miss out on:
Dal Lake: Dal Lake is the biggest attraction of Kashmir. So much so that it enjoys a celebrity status and should not be missed at any cost. Over the years, a number of films and songs have also been shot here. Its beauty has no comparison. One can either enjoy a shikara ride on this lake or stand before its frozen form when the lake turns to ice in winter. Many say that if it weren’t for Dal Lake then Kashmir wouldn’t have been dubbed as ‘the heaven on Earth’.
Amarnath: Amarnath Yatra season is approaching very fast. And for the religious travelers, this can be a great opportunity to club a holiday with a spiritual journey. Amarnath Cave is situated in the state of Jammu & Kashmir and is just a small distance away from top holiday destinations like Srinagar and Gulmarg. An Amarnath Yatra is said to bestow salvation to the devotees undertaking it. Although the Yatra is arduous and takes one to the tough trekking paths and inclement weather in Himalaya, it never fails to becharm the devotees by its religious fervor and natural amazement.
Skiing: Skiing is one of the most popular hillside sports. However, you need plenty of snow for that. If your trip is being planned during the warm and snow-free summer days, then you may not get a chance to ski. But other sports like parasailing, pony rides and zorbing are always there to keep you happy.
Shalimar and Nishant: Shalimar and Nishant are the most famous Mughal Gardens which date back to the 17th and 18th centuries and are exceptionally verdant and beautiful. You dare not miss out on a stroll at these corners. For family travelers and honeymoon couples, these parks are worth visiting.
Ladakh Tour: Ladakh is that dare-to-go destination which may make some people quite uncomfortable. It is very cold and pretty remote as well. But with special Ladakh tour packages, it is easy to travel there and enjoy river rafting, mountain biking and mountaineering. Tso Moriri Lake is a special attraction. With a number of monasteries and Gompas dotting the region abundantly, Ladakh tour has been taken by a large number of Buddhist pilgrims.
When it comes to plan a Srinagar tour, the best option is to give this task to a reputable travel agency. There are scores of travel agencies which provide Kashmir tour packages in varied price range.
