It was the Persian poet Amir Khusru who referred to Kashmir as a paradise on earth. There is a old stone plaque in Shalimar Garden, which proclaims "Agar firdous baroye zameen ast, hami asto, hami asto hami ast", meaning "If there is a paradise upon earth, it is here, it is here, it is here".



The Beauty Lies Here………
Srinagar… Redefines Charm

The capital city Srinagar is the prized possession of the Vale of Kashmir. Imbibing many colors of the state, it reflects the authentic Jammu & Kashmir. The city sits quietly on the bank of Jhelum and contemplates the vivaciousness. The canopied Shikara boats, plush houseboats, snow-capped mountains and the sparkling water of Dal and Nageen Lake come together to bring the picture of authentic Srinagar come alive. The blessing of Prophet Mohammad from Hazratbal Shrine and Jama Masjid, the divinity of Shankarcharya temple, glimpse of floating vegetable market and the bountiful flora and fauna, all honour the capital city with a title of Paradise on Earth. Srinagar also renders great options for activities like bird watching (Dachigam Wildlife Sanctuary) water skiing (Dal Lake, Nagin Lake and Bod-dal), golfing (Kashmir Golf Course), trekking (towards Pir Panjal, 89 kms from Srinagar) and boating(Shikara ride on Dal Lake and Nagin Lake) and thus makes holidays in Kashmir a successful expedition.

Day 4: GULMARG [TREK TO ALPATHAR LAKE] [FEROZEPUR NALLAH]

Start your day on a healthy note with some delicious breakfast at hotel.
This day includes visit to Alpathar Frozen Lake and Ferozpur Nallah.
Alpather lake lies around 13 kms away from the Gulmarg town. With a backdrop of snow-capped mountains and acres of lush green terrain, this is just the place where you would want to go to escape from the hustle bustle of cities. For adventure seekers and fit tourists, a trek of one-day consisting of thirteen kms, will take you to Alpather Lake from Gulmarg
If you are not that adventurous on foot, then just take the alternative short hike of 1.5km from the Gondola Phase II of Mt. Apharwat. To reach Phase II, you need to reach Phase I from base first. The base of Mt. Apharwat has a Gondola ticket office from where you can sit on a Gondola to transport you to Phase I. From Phase I you need to take another separate Gondola ride to get to Phase II. The journey through Gondolas is as magnificent as the nature that surrounds it.
Even if that 1.5kms walk does not suit you, then you can hire a pony to take you to the Alpather lake. Just a few bucks on spot and a short comfortable ride is all it takes to reach Lake Apharwat.
Also, if you are a professional rider and got good control over horses, you can hire a horse of your own and reach the lake. It is one pleasant and picturesque ride through green woods. Other tourists who are not professionals are advised to take a guide along with the horse for safety purpose.
This lake is not to be missed in your itinerary, however tight your schedule might get. It is just out of a movie scene and getting here is not difficult at all. There are various means by which every person of every age can get to this beautiful lake. Go ahead and enjoy the land of dreams!
Post this lovely trip transfers to Srinagar hotel for dinner and overnight stay.

Day 5: GULAMRG – VISIT BANDIPORA , WULAR LAKE – TRANSFER TO SRINAGAR

Satiate your morning panks with a delicious breakfast. Check out and board your private vehicle from Gulmarg. En-route head towards Bandipora and visit the Wular Lake – a surreal beauty. It is one of the largest natural freshwater lakes in the Asian continent, This miracle of nature was formed by a tectonic activity (when the edges of two or more plates inside the earth come in contact because of earthquakes, volcanoes or general mountain building activities). The size of the lake varies according to the season and while sometimes it is a 30-sq-km pool, other times it is a vast 60-sq-km expanse. It is said that the lake used to be bigger in size but much of its water was drained out when willow plantations were built on its shore in the 1950s.
  Today, Wular Lake doubles up as a birdwatcher's paradise as it is known for its avian population. One can see some beautiful bird species at all times of the day. There are many species of fish as well, including common carp, rosy barb, mosquitofish and several snowtrout.
  The lake is a great place for family outings on houseboats and narrow boats that can be hired to cruise along the lake. The experience at Wular Lake is nothing short of poetic - one can enjoy the colorful and beautiful aquatic life in the lake while relaxing in the silence of the mountains that surround the lake. Further you will be transferred to Srinagar . Late evening, you can enjoy some free time shopping at Srinagar, the famous Pashmina Shawl and woolens , dry fruits and saffron. The last day of the tour calls off with tasty dinner and a comfortable overnight stay at the hotel.
