The focus lies mainly on the waters in Srinagar, with the river and lakes of the city dotted with colorful houseboats and making the relatively cool summer capital a popular tourist destination. Historic gardens punctuate the city, often themselves adorned by impressive water features, while mosques new and old represent some of the main architectural attractions of Srinagar. The old town bustle of the more historic quarters can be felt on a stroll encompassing lively markets and street food stalls along narrow streets. To personalize your trip to Srinagar, create itinerary details specific to you using our India itinerary tool.

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.
