Well, traveling to Srinagar was actually the continuation of our Leh Ladakh Road Trip. We reached the city at 6 in the evening after a long drive from Leh and immediately went to Dal lake to get an accommodation in a Houseboat. We stayed that night in a house boat and had lovely Kashmiri cuisines for dinner. Next morning we left for the shikara tour in the Dal Lake early morning. We visited the local shops on the lake, saw the floating market, bought couple of pashmina shawls for family and reached back home after almost a 3 hrs boad ride. As we entered our house, the delicious Kashmiri style chicken all prepared by the family was waiting for us. Yeah ! they cooked it for us on our special request though they charged for it but it was yummy. Evening we visited local shops and next day early morning left for Gulmarg. After spending some time on the hills in Gulmarg, we left for Jammu.

Well, shikara is a must visit and exploring Dal lake is something you should not miss. It actually opened my vision to many other things of the city, how do they live on water, how is everything built on this lake and what challenges do people face in the city. its good to relate and understand more.
