Srinagar Holiday Packages

Srinagar, the summer seat of the government of the state of Jammu and Kashmir has long been one of Indiaâs most popular tourist destinations. In part, this has had to do with the multi-layered character of the city and its several attractions. And in part, this is because Srinagar serves as the base for the numerous places of interest and immense natural beauty that lie within Kashmir â and for most places, this remains the access point. Up to Indiaâs Independence in 1947, only the cream of the country traveled and holidayed in Kashmir. Then, within a few short years, there was a boom in tourism and this soon became the backbone of Srinagarâs economy and thousands of visitors thronged to the valley of which the Mughal Emperor, Jehangir is said to have remarked in the seventeenth century, "Agar Firdaus bar rue zameen ast, Hamin ast-o, hamin ast-o, hamin ast" - If there is a Paradise on earth, it is here, it is here, it is here.

Srinagar is built on both sides of the river, Jhelum. The old city has quite a different character to the wide spaces of the parks and boulevards and gives expression to the phrase âcheek by jowlâ; this part of the city with narrow streets and houses of exposed brick and elaborate timberwork â which includes half a dozen old bridges â is also the area where many craftsmen live and work; this includes most, if not all of the cityâs copper workers.

Srinagar, which lies in a valley, changes its character with every season. It gets snow-laden winds coming down from the hills fairly early in winter. The lakes practically freeze over and yet, some of the iconic houseboats tethered to the icy banks still function. The famous chinar trees and boulevards lined by poplars are stripped clean of their leaves and before rain and snow firmly hush them, they make for a remarkably noisy carpet that rustles and crunches at every step. The inner architecture and scaffolding of these magnificent trees now comes up for display with proud trunks and wiry branches. People move about with 'kangris' with clay bowls and frames of wicker, that hold smoldering bits of charcoal under heavy 'phirans', warm long tunics. In summer, Srinagar gets fairly hot and temperatures can touch 38 degrees Celsius. The numerous parks become the venue for evening promenades.

Srinagar Guide

  • Shopping in Srinagar

    The sheer range of goods and souvenirs available in Srinagar often makes just shopping worth the trip. One of the popular (nullif relatively expensive buys) is cashmere â pashmina â shawls. Some mixes are also available â like pashmina and silk, or pashmina and wool and pashmina and polyester, but are not quite the real thing. Hand-woven ones, compared to machine-made ones command a premium and normally have some irregularity in the weave. The Kashmir Shawl Emporium and the government run emporium are good places for these. Quality carpets in both wool and silk are another good buy. Cheaper scatter rugs, ânamdahsâ have a coarser base and are covered with bright embroidery. Papier mache, jewelery, leather, local tweeds, wood carving (nullmostly in walnut), wicker products, saffron, dry-fruits are some of the other things that can be bought. The iconic images of the leaf of the chinar tree (nullplatanus orientalis) and the paisley (nullwhich many believe to have had its origins in Kashmir) will be found numerous handicrafts.

  • Things to do in Srinagar

    The tomb of Madin Shah, a well known and highly venerated saint of Kashmir, lies just north of the Madin Shah Mosque in the Zadibal locality of Srinagar. Architecturally, this is one of the most attractive tombs in the area. At one point of time, this must have presented a brilliant sight as the walls were covered with decorative glazed tiles, though today, much is missing. One of the most striking representations on the tomb is of a beast that has the body of a leopard; this changes at the neck into the trunk of a human being.

  • How To Reach Srinagar

    Surface - Completed in 1956, the Jawahar Tunnel or Banihal Tunnel gave Srinagar its first year round road access. Since then, Srinagar has remained well connected by road to the rest of the country â barring the occasional delay caused by a landslide or snowstorm. The road distance to Jammu is 293 kilometers and to Delhi is 876 kilometers; at both places, regular, deluxe and Volvo buses are available for the journey â as are taxis.

    Train - Srinagar is only connected to Baramulla by train on the Quazigund â Baramulla line. Jammu (nullTawi) is the most practical railhead for Srinagar and this is connected to most major cities in north India by rail. From Jammu (nullTawi), taxis and buses are available for Srinagar. The distance is 295 kilometers and the drive takes seven to eight hours.

    Air - Several domestic airlines operate regular flights to Srinagar from Jammu, Delhi and other places; these include - Kingfisher, GoAir, Spicejet, Jet Airways, Jet Lite, Indian Airlines. Flights to Jeddah are available for Haj only.

  • Weather in Srinagar

    Surrounded by high snowcapped mountains Srinagar in built in a wide valley that has only a few undulations. The mean elevation is around 1600 meters above sea level. The city is quite spread out and along with the suburbs and peripheral villages covers almost 300 square kilometers. But the core is surprisingly compact and many places are within walking distances or short drives of each other. The river Jhelum passes through the city and is spanned by bridges. North of Srinagar lies the Hokersar wetland that is a transitory home to several species of migratory birds that move down from Siberia and Central Asia in early winter and return in spring. Long tree lined boulevards, clusters of majestic chinar trees, lakes with houseboats have long been the most recognizable of Srinagar's images - and they all still hold true.

    Despite its elevation and the surround of mountains, Srinagar has fairly warm summers, and the temperatures can touch the high thirties (nullCelsius). Winters are cold and temperatures can drop a few degrees below freezing point. The markers of other season between the hot and the cold ones â like spring or the monsoons â are relatively indistinguishable compared to many other places in the western Himalaya. Many homes use fans and air-conditioners in summer and all require adequate heating in winter.
