  • One of the most beautiful gardens I have ever seen. The flowers here are magnificent! The water fall in the middle is also amazing. You can spend the whole day admiring the beauty of the mountains at the back and Fall Lake in front!
  • Nishant Garden is the Garden of Kings, it was created by Shah Jehan's Father-in-law and it's breathtaking. The variety of flowers is priceless and there is serenity and peace in this beautiful garden. Take a bath on the very top of the garden and have a beautiful panoramic view of the garden and the Dal Lake in front of it.
  • Heaven on the earth. No tourist visiting Srinagar can afford to miss it. What a great plantation, one cannot believe. Beautiful.
  • We live on the most beautiful planet, Earth which has very clean and attractive nature full of greenery. Nature is our best friend which provides us all the resources to live here. Srinagar most beautiful plce on earth ūüĆć

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.
