Srinagar is the preferred honeymoon destination for millions of tourists in India and abroad. The famous Dal Lake, the sight of picturesque snow-covered mountains ahead, their phitoor and poots, houseboats, and Shikaras are sure to mesmerize anyone. Arrive in Srinagar and get a deluxe room in one of the houseboats, visit local market and collect souvenirs like Walnut wood and Papier- mache items.
Sonamarg is your next destination in Kashmir, situated at an altitude of 2800 m above the sea level. A lush green blanket of exotic grass, rare flowering plants, and tall fir, birch, and pine trees capture the minds. The magical sight of Sonamarg when the golden sun rays fall on the beautiful landscape and flora earns it the name “The Meadow of Gold.” Hire a pony; enjoy the trek along the banks of the Sindh River, catch trout, and stay overnight in a houseboat.
Pahalgam is the place where annual Amarnath Yatra begins. Also called as “Valley of Shepherds,” this tehsil has many places which can enthrall the tourists. Capturing the breathtaking sight of shepherds grazing their sheep in the valley beside the River Lidder, in your camera can be an invaluable collection. Stay overnight in a hotel.
Gulmarg is truly a paradise, as you always need more of it! Fourth day is a journey towards this “Meadow of Flowers,” an astonishing place with shadows of mottles of clouds falling on the undulating terrain and rarest flowers on the other side of the valley. It also offers ski resort, golf course, and cable car rides. Spend this night in a Gulmarg hotel.
On this day you’ll be visiting Nishat and Shalimar, the Mogul Gardens in which many old Bollywood movie scenes were shot. Nishat Bagh is an Urdu word meaning “The Garden of Pleasure,” Shalimar Bagh is a Sanskrit word meaning “The Abode of Love.” Then visit Shankaracharya Temple and retreat to your hotel room.
