Gar firdaus ruhe zamin ast, Hamin asto, hamin asto, hamin ast. “If there is a heaven on earth, it’s here, it’s here, it’s here.” This is how the Sufi mystic Amir Khusrow has described the Kashmir Valley, and Srinagar is at the heart of the valley. Smack in the middle of the city is the mighty Dal Lake, its placid water reflecting the vivid kaleidoscope of innumerous houseboats, shikaras (taxi-boats), and the snow-capped Pir Panjal range: a sight that will make your heart skip a beat. The city is home to the state-of-the-art Mughal Gardens, Shalimar Bagh and Nishant Bagh being the most famous of them. The gardens exhibit the Mughal taste of nature and the philosophy of disciplining nature rather than imitating it: fountain pools and canals, meticulously manicured hedges, and motley flowerbeds. Also known as the Kashmiri Venice, Srinagar is a place not to be missed by those seeking a tranquil refuge in the lap of the Himalayas.

About Alchi

Day 2-We went to Alchi Monastry, 5 hrs-140Kms from leh, on the Srinagar-Leh highway. En-route, experienced the Magnetic hill,saw the Sangam of Indus-Zanskar river, beautiful and virgin experience.We did rafting in the river and on way back to leh visited pathar sahib gurudwara. took overnight rest at the hotel.Day 3 We started for Khardungla(the highest Motorable road) at 9am and reached khardungla point at 1pm. The temperature was freezing cold and it was vacumm there at the top. The military serves the public with snacks and tea and have oxygen mask for people who may have an oxygen deficiency(u may have).The route is nauseating and better carry 'hajmola' if you are altitude sick. By 4pm we reached hunder village and visited the Dikshit Gompa which is a 100ft. long buddha statue overlooking the hunder village. In the evening, we took rest at a boutique hotel at hunder which is a small hamlet with some unique stay options. The surroundings are quiet and you will at times feel cut off from the civilization.
