Day 1

It was a very sudden and unplanned trip. NothinTook a flight from Delhi to Srinagar Airport, and reached by 2 pm.
Checked in Hotel Shah Abbas near Dal Lake ghat no. 10.
Left hotel to roam around by Dal Lake at 4pm, especially for Shikara rides(boat ride as called in Kashmir) because sunset is the best time for it. During off seasons, it costs Rs.250 for a ride and in season, it can go up to Rs. 1000.

Day 3

On day 3, we went to Gulmarg, which took us at least 2.5 hrs. Gulmarg is a very pretty place with snow clad mountains. People come here to enjoy cable car rides, skiing, and other adventure sports.  The site is divided into 2 phases. At phase 1, you can have enjoy all kind of snow adventure sports, while phase 2 is mostly famous for valley view and treks.
For foodies, there is not much to eat at this point but maggi and Kashmiri kahwah is a must try here. The best part is Gondola ride(cable car ride) which costs you around Rs. 740 for phase 1 and Rs. 950 for phase 2.
