More than just houseboats: Srinagar

print   ·   T  T  

Think of Jammu and Kashmir and your mind automatically conjures up images of political disturbance, violence and unrest. Sneha Vachhaney, however, has a different view. “It is only when you reach Srinagar that you realise it is a beautiful and peaceful city. The old city markets and mosques, the golden sunrise and sunsets at the Dal, floating markets, learning about the art of pashmina shawl making, feasting on Kashmiri food in people’s houses and the Kashmiri kahwa, all made our trip memorable. The best time to experience the city at leisure would be August and September. April is good for the tulips and for those who want to see snow and ski, December to February is the best. There is nothing like booking a houseboat but not the ones on the Dal Lake, instead pick one on the clean and quiet Nigeen Lake.”
