If you want to take relief from the torturing heat of the summers then you can travel to the cool environments in Kashmir. Kashmir is often referred as a paradise on the earth.  Enjoying holidays in Kashmir is a very wonderful experience. Shikara rides and stay in house boats also form a very important part of a holiday experience in Kashmir. Srinagar, the capital of Kashmir; Gulmarg, the snow haven; Sonamarg, the meadow of Gold and the idyllic Pahalgam are some of the main attractions of the valley.

From Katra the Vaishno Devi pilgrimage is about 12 kms. After visiting the temple we return back to Katra the same day. 

Day 03: Katra - Srinagar (about 280 km)
In the morning after having breakfast we drive from Katra to Srinagar. Srinagar has been described by some visitors as the Venice of the East. This beautiful city was established by Emperor Ashoka some 2300 years ago. A unique charm of Srinagar is its 1300 or more houseboats, the floating little hotels on the edge of the Dal Lake. Upon arrival you will be met by representative and transferred to one of this house boat on Dal Lake. 

Day 04: Srinagar
Today we start our sightseeing in Srinagar. Today we visit the famous Mughal gardens in Srinagar. In the Mughal gardens first of all you will view the Chashma Shahi. Chashma Shahi means the Royal Spring and is dedicated to the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan. The spring waters are believed to have curative properties. After visiting the Chashma Shahi we visit the Nishat and Shalimar Mughal Gardens. Nishat is the larger of the two gardens and has an impressive plantation of Chenar trees on its highest terrace. Both the gardens are built on a symmetrical plan of central waterways with fountains dividing a series of gardened terraces. In the evening we visit the Shankaracharya Temple. This temple is located on a sharp hill, 1,000 feet high and houses a small temple dedicated to Lord Shiva. It was built in memory of the great Shankaracharya who came to Kashmir from Kerala to revive Hinduism. From the top of the hills, you would be able to have a panoramic view of the Kashmir Valley. After visiting the temple we drive back to our house boat.

There are immense beauty and adventure activities that make Gulmarg much more than a cool hill resort. In Gulmarg while walking along the circular path you only have to look down to have a complete view of the valley and Srinagar.
