The summer capital of Jammu and Kashmir, Srinagar’s beauty stuns you at every turn. Known for its iconic Dal Lake with its gently floating shikharas and the beautifully carved wooden houseboats, the Dal Lake is a picture of serenity. The mountains in the distance and their placid magnificence will not fail to move you. Srinagar’s beautiful Mughal Gardens are an ode to the partnership between nature’s beauty and human enterprise. It is true what they say. Everyone becomes a poet when they visit Kashmir. Shalimar Bagh and Nishat Garden are some of the most beautiful places to visit in Kashmir in summer.
Kashmir turns golden during autumn. Chinar trees wherever you see, are adorned with a golden cover, especially in the Dachigam National Park. They’re a treat for the eyes. Simply immerse yourself in the glory of the surrounding mountains and if you’re lucky, you might even catch a glimpse of the hangul, the famed Kashmir stag. Other places to see here include the Hazratbal shrine, the Jama Masjid, and the Shankaracharya Mandir. Srinagar is truly one of the most amazing places to visit in Kashmir.
