Srinagar has been a tourist hub since forever. The divine natural beauty of the valley has driven tourists to this city since many years. You will not be short of options to commute within the city. Lets look at choices you would have to travel within in the Srinagar city once you are there:

  • By Auto Rickshaw/Taxi

    From the airport and railway station you can hire taxis in srinagar for nominal rates. You can hire government taxis from the airport, 15 km away from the city, for somewhere around INR 400. Autos ply all across the city and can be hired to travel from one place to another. Remember to haggle confidently for prices when taking an auto ride.

  • By Bus
    Buses are the cheapest means of transportation within the city. They are also quite frequent and operate to and from all major places in the city.

  • By Rented cycle / bikes

    For the enthusiasts and nature buffs rented motorcycles and bicycles are available. An enjoyable ride along the enticing milieu can only be enjoyed through these means. Bicycles are however, environment friendly and hence is a morally better option.

  • By Boat
    Shikara boats are available for transportation around the placid and splendorous lakes. They have access to most of the important places of interest in Srinagar, they are also a relatively cheaper means.

Strolling is always a good option for nearby places other than taking an auto or bus. The charming scenery can be thoroughly enjoyed once you roam around the city.
