On arrival in Srinagar, we will meet up with our local representative in Kashmir and drive to our hotel. In the evening enjoy an orientation tour of the city.
After an early breakfast, we will head out to the Shalimar Mogul Gardens where in the Summer there are roses in bloom and in Autumn the Chinar leaves change their colour. After spending some quiet time in the gardens, we will visit the Shankaracharya temple and enjoy the view from the top. After local lunch we will make a stop at the Shahi Hamdan mosque in Old Srinagar by the Jhelum River. We will also make a stop at the local Rose Water manufacturer whose shop is one of the oldest in Srinagar. In the evening enjoy a Shikara ride on Nigeen Lake.
Enjoy a leisurely breakfast after which we will head to Yousmarg. On the way though we will visit Charar e Sharif. The surroundings of the Charar E Sharif Dargah are surreal, and a visit to the ancient monument is a very sufi experience. Enjoy tea at one of the local tea stalls and drive to Yousmarg. The evening is free to take a horse ride (opt) in the surrounding meadows. Yousmarg is known as the meadow of Jesus.
Early mornings are best to get a real glimpse of the nature-enriched surroundings here in Kashmir. We will check out of Yousmarg and descent into the plains via Shopian and later visit the most beautiful waterfall in Kashmir, the Aharbal waterfall. The blue water gushing out through the canyon is a sight to take time with. Later we would make a lunch halt before driving to the Verinag springs which is known as the birth of the river Jhelum. The drive from Verinag to Kokernag is a beautiful one. Our hotel for the night is a little further away from Kokernag and towards Daksum.
After an easy morning, we will proceed to Aru Valley via Pehalgam. On this tour, we avoid crowds and touristy areas, and this is the reason why we choose Aru over Pehelgam. Once in Pehalgam we will take a different transport to visit the Chandanwadi, from where the Amarnath Trek starts, and Betab Valley (photo stop only). After lunch in Pehalgam we will drive parallel to the Lidder river to climb to the picturesque town of Aru in the Aru Valley. This would be the best drive for this tour.
After a leisurely breakfast, we will enjoy a walk in the village of Aru and to a point where a mountain stream runs into the Lidder River. Spend time in peace with nature in the sound of the gushing waters of the freshly melted snow. After lunch relax for a bit before embarking on an evening hike to a view point in Aru.
We will head back to Srinagar via the Martund Sun Temple near Anantnag. Later enjoy lunch and then visit the dry fruit and Saffron growing region of Pampore in the Pulwama district. Enjoy the Kashmiri Kehwa and some free time to buy saffron. Drive to Srinagar to Check-in to the Houseboat.
After breakfast, you will have free time to explore the city on your own. We will head to the airport later to board the flight back home.
