Srinagar

The focus lies mainly on the waters in Srinagar, with the river and lakes of the city dotted with colorful houseboats and making the relatively cool summer capital a popular tourist destination.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Jama Masjid Mosque and Gulmarg Alpine Guides. Take a break from the city and head to Dal Lake and Apharwat Peak. There's lots more to do: contemplate the waterfront views at Nigeen Lake, take in the spiritual surroundings of Hazratbal, explore the ancient world of Pari Mahal, and contemplate the long history of Kathi Darwaza.

For reviews, other places to visit, traveler tips, and tourist information, read our Srinagar tour planner.

New York City, USA to Srinagar is an approximately 29-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 10 hours traveling from New York City to Srinagar. Cap off your sightseeing on the 6th (Wed) early enough to travel to Leh.
