Srinagar arrival and house boat stay
We welcome you at the airport and proceed for the ever charming Dal Lake. Dal Lake is the top most attraction appealing with its unusual beauty guarded by holy peaks in its surrounding. As you enter the Boulevard Road (the lake road), the house boats seem to call for your presence on one side, and well-decorated markets on the other. We sit in Shikara (a small boat) that takes us across to the houseboat (fixed living boats put up in water). The beautiful walnut carved interiors delight your eyes and hot Kashmiri Kehva for refreshment. Enjoy Shikara Ride at Dal Lake amidst the serenity of calm waters and cool breeze.

In the evening we return to Srinagar for dinner and night stay. Originally called ‘Gaurimarg’ by shepherds, its present name was given in the 16th century by Sultan Yusuf Shah, who was inspired by the sight of its grassy slopes emblazoned with wild flowers. Gulmarg was a favourite haunt of Emperor Jehangir who once collected 21 different varieties of flowers from here. Today Gulmarg is not merely a mountain resort of exceptional beauty- it also has the highest green golf course in the world, at an altitude of 2,650 m, and is the country’s premier ski resort in the winter.
