Srinagar, the city of lakes and unmatched natural beauty, offers experience to tourists that they can treasure for entire lifetime. Three days trip to Srinagar will let you have a splendid sightseeing experience and leave time for other activities that you will be able to enjoy. Lets look at how you can spend the three days in Srinagar in the best way.

Day 1

It is best to start your sightseeing day early in Srinagar. The first thing on your agenda should be the alluring Mughal Gardens; enchanting during the spring time, these gardens are the pride and joy of the city. Built by the Mughal kings centuries ago, these gardens are well maintained by the tourism department of the state and offers a memorable experience to its visitors.

The Mughal gardens include Cheshm-E-Shahi, Shalimar Bagh and the Nishat Bagh. All of these gardens are located in the boulevard road in Srinagar. Start with Nishat Bagh going ahead with Shalimar Bagh and then Cheshm-e-Shahi. If you happen to be here in the month of April you can visit the Indira Gandhi memorial Tulip Garden, that remains open only for a few days during this time, before going to Cheshm-e-Shahi.

Located close to the Cheshm-e-Shahi garden is the famous Pari Mahal you can spend few beautiful moments here after the ‘Srinagar garden visiting spree’.

While you are in the middle of your garden hopping session, don't forget to grab some lunch. Neither Kashmiri food nor the hospitality of Kashmiri people need any hype. So, get ready to have some delicious delicacies of the city. Now, you have three options for a delicious meal here. Option 1: J&K tourism restaurants inside the Mughal gardens that offer wholesome and delicious meals at reasonable rates. Option 2: Famous Krishna Dhaba at Sonwar, offering lip smacking food at pocket friendly rates. Option 3: For the ones who wants to have a lavish meal, you have Lhasa and Shamyan restaurant located at the boulevard road where you can have a scrumptious meal.

By evening you can go on a shopping spree in the markets of Srinagar. Lal Chowk and the Polo View market are great shopping stops for tourists here. Pick up some souvenirs for back home that will remind you of this wonderful day spent in Srinagar. However, make sure to reach the markets some time before 7.30 PM because after that the shops begin to close their shutters.
