Sonamarg, Srinagar

3.9
#3 of 7 in Nature in Srinagar
Head up to Sonamarg, a small mountain town set in a scenic position. Use this as a starting point for a range of hikes and adventures into the surrounding tall peaks, impressive glaciers, and attractive stream winding through the valley. The seasonal settlement of this hill station lets you arrange for a guide to show you the area, or rent a pony for the trip up to the glacier. Historically used as a stop-off on the ancient Silk Road, the village remains uninhabited and inaccessible during the winter when snowfall gets heavier.

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.
