We reached by early morning flight from Delhi to Srinagar. Arrived at 7:30 am took breakfast from there and moved to house boat at Dal lake. You will easily get a room on House boat in 1500-2000 bucks. It depends on availability and peak season. We had already booked the room. We decided to go for local sight seeing. We dressed up and headed towards Pari Mahal, Nishat garden, Shalimar garden, Shankracharya Temple. We also tried local Kashmiri Dress which you can get on rent in 100 bucks. Girls to avoid tiredness, don't wear high heels. Nishat garden is full of beautiful flowers n Dal Lake added some more beauty to it. If you are not looking for all garden type of experience then you can skip any one of them. A breath taking shikara ride which actually define its beauty but sometimes it looks overrated. So many sellers will be at Dal Lake selling Saffron (kesar). If you are not a pro in identifying original then don't buy. Because of so much duplicity. It was my bday So my room was beautifully decorated with cake and flowers arranged by house boat management on request.
