Best time to visit srinagar

Srinagar, lying on the banks of beautiful Jhelum River, is a place which truly symbolises beauty and romance and is rightly known as the Venice of the East. This mesmerising valley engulfed in sky-scraping mountains and refreshing greenery will leave you absolutely enchanted. Head here to experience warm hospitality of the people and the great food. 
Srinagar — Jammu and Kashmir’s summer capital — literally means "city of affluence bounty". It bears many scars as well as the unnerving (sometimes reassuring) presence of the army. Yet, as you walk the streets, paddle through the waters of the Dal Lake or down the Jhelum, the perspective changes as you sense a more complex continuum. The world famous flower and vegetable floating market is a sight to behold. 

The bowl of the Valley is too large for the dismal tale of militancy and military occupation alone. It’s brimming with faith, with history and with stunning natural beauty.There are other attractions in the town which are equally captivating like Mughal Gardens, Shankaracharya Temple and Srinagar Museum among others. If you want to indulge yourself in shopping, just drop in at the local markets to buy Kashmiri handicrafts and Pashmina shawls.  The intricate and exquisite handiwork on textiles is the specialty of the city's craftsmen. Rich pashminas will make you feel like a princess and their kaftan style suits will add warmth to your wardrobe.  Don't be disappointed if you are looking for adventure sport options as the place offers some interesting choices like skiing, camping, kayaking, paragliding and many more.

There are plenty of apple orchards in Srinagar which speak plenty of the city's natural bounty. Take a stroll here and buy apples to be enjoyed back home. Walking in the valley, you cannot help but marvel at the juxtaposition of beauty and weapons, of god's blessed beauty and army, of the constant fear for life and death.
