Where to stay in Srinagar

The moderate climate of Srinagar has made it a popular destination for locals during the summer, hence its good range of accommodations. Hotels basic and luxury, great and small, jostle for position alongside the main waterways, and across from the city's many historic gardens. However, staying on a houseboat on Dal Lake remains the most iconic way to ejoy your Srinagar holiday, with options ranging from budget to high-end. If you don't fancy spending your nights on the water, the palatial scale of the main tourist area makes it one of the more relaxing and popular areas to stay in. More cost-effective accommodations sit on the side streets of the residential districts further to the north.

  • This garden is not famous for its flowers, but the natural water! It has a natural stream which contains pure and cool natural drinking water. The water tastes very sweet and refreshing. Don't forget to bring bottle with you for taking some water to home while visiting this place!
  • Very well maintained... Peaceful place to spend the day... But if on a trip need to visit the other gardens so wouldn't get much time here... Highlight is a fountain which is said to have pristine drinking water..
  • One of the oldest natural spring in area having a tasty water. Surrounded by beautiful garden.
  • You can see beautiful flowers in this garden. Do taste the cool water of Chasme Shahi. Stay away from those Photographer Touts.
  • A beautiful garden with natural source of water..a must visit in Srinagar..legend has it that drinking water for Nehru used to be taken from here..
