The unmatched beauty of Srinagar is recognised by people all around the world. So, if you get a chance to travel to this enchanting place visit the following places to fulfill your trip:

  • Pari Mahal

    Pari Mahal, meaning ‘house of fairies' in Srinagar is a majestic historic monument that is located above the alluring Chashma Shahi Gardens. This age old monument displays the architectural brilliance of the medieval times. A vast and beautiful garden surrounds this structure.
    This monument was once a
    Buddhist monastery and later it was turned into a school of astrology that was promoted by the eldest son of Shah Jahan, Dara Shikoh. It is a 5 minutes drive from the Chashma Shahi Gardens and is a beautiful place that is a must visit on your trip to Srinagar.

    Entry fee: Nil

  • Dal Lake

    Dal Lake in Srinagar has a picture-perfect spot that travellers to Srinagar cannot miss. Surrounded by majestic mountains on one side, the lake is a center of attraction for the travelers arriving to this place called, paradise on earth.
    The houseboats anchored on the Dal are often huge and spacious. Over the years, houseboats grew in number with many flaunting new designs, comforts and outlook. If you can accommodate yourself in one of these you will feel yourself closer to the heritage and culture of Kashmir.

  • Nagin Lake

    Lying on the far east of the city on the foothills of the Zabarwan Mountains, Nagin Lake flows as it branches out of the Dal Lake. The lake is enclosed by the Shankaracharya Hill on the south and Hari Parbat on the west. Flanked by majestic willows and other beautiful trees, the lake offers splendorous view of its verdant surroundings.
    There are many houseboats in this lake too, however these are more secluded and less crowded than the ones on the Dal.

  • Wular Lake

    Wular lake is located 50 km from the main Srinagar city. It is a lovely picnic spot and is known as largest freshwater lake in all of India. It spreads over a 200 sq km but this surface area is subjected to changes during the year.
    Otherwise calm in its appearance, the lake is noted for the fierce winds that sometimes blow heavy currents. The deepest part of the lake is known as
    Mota Khon, the 'Gulf of corpses'. It is said according to local folklore that the bodies of the people who were drowned in the lake are supposed to be washed to this place.
    Swimming is not a very good idea here but the beauty of the lake sure attracts many to the spot for picnics and a wonderful time.

These places are sure to give you an unforgettable experience for lifetime.
