Yousmarg, Srinagar

4.2
#2 of 7 in Outdoors in Srinagar
Enjoy the lush alpine environment of Yousmarg, a hill where Jesus Christ reportedly stayed for some time. Snowy peaks surround the peaceful, grassy meadows, dotted by tall pines and serene bodies of water. Enjoy a pony trek up into the hills for fantastic photo opportunities and views, or plan to hike some of the trails in the area at your own pace. Refreshingly free of tourists, the area also doesn't offer much in the way of refreshments or food (short of a nearby hotel); bring your own supplies. Put Yousmarg at the forefront of your travel plans using our Srinagar day trip website .

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.
