About Srinagar

Flanked by snow-capped mountains and boasting a distinctly mild climate, Srinagar is one of the country's most popular destinations for Indian nationals seeking to get away from the chaos and heat of the cities. Stunning gardens are scattered throughout the region and colourful houseboats line the edge of the sparkling water, making the town a visual delight as well as a breath of fresh air for all who visit. One of the most prominent features of this mountainside town is the Dal Lake that has caused Srinagar to be referred to as the "Venice of the East" and makes the landscape here even more picturesque.
