We took an early morning flight to Srinagar from Delhi and landed by 10 am in the morning. Our first night halt was to be at Pahalgam and so we whizzed through the city of Srinagar and reached Pahalgam by afternoon. A few stops in-between for some hot Kahwa, snacks and a heartfelt view of the Saffron fields, we checked into Hotel Heevan which was right next to Lidder river and huge mountains covered in fresh snow. The weather was chilling and rains made it even worse. The great hotel staff made us feel completely at home with hot Kahwa, a great central heating inside the hotel and wonderful views from the huge glass windows.
