So I started my day with quick tea and omelette breakfast and my taxi was waiting for me outside my hotel.
We reached pahalgam in 2.5 hours. The road was good and there were many apple gardens on the way.
If anyone wants to buy dry fruits or kesar, the Pahalgam rd is best to shop.
I stopped on a picnic spot near running river and took couple of photos and then went to main market of Pahalgam.
There is another trek to few tourist spots from that market for Kashmir valley, baisaran, tulian lake.
I decided to hire a pony this time as the trek was very muddy because of rain and it was a steep one.
After spending couple of hours on top,i walked down the trek as it was relatively easy and paid the pony guy. I hired the pony in 600 rs. He asked for 1500 but it all depends how well you negotiate. My taxi driver negotiated for me in local language.
I came back to Srinagar and watched the sunset over dal lake and had a good night sleep at my hotel.
Back to home. Delhi
I checked out of hotel and went to nearby market to shop and eat some more local food.
Later went to auto stand, took a shared taxi to airport and reached 3 hours early.
Please note that there are various checkpoints before Srinagar airport and inside airport so its better to leave couple of hours early to avoid any last minute rush.
