Srinagar Tourist Places

 
 
Tourists planning to visit India should include Srinagar Travel in their itinerary. Srinagar is the capital of the Indian state called Jammu and Kashmir. This city, however, is the summer capital because in winters the city is covered with snow. Srinagar is often referred to as Srinagar Kashmir as well because of its location. The city is full of large lakes and lovely gardens. The lakes here have unique houseboats called shikaras which are the prime attraction here.

Though Srinagar is linked to the rest of the country by air and trains, tourists prefer to travel by road, especially from Jammu to Srinagar because of the picturesque surroundings. However, tourists desirous of traveling to this city should search for “weather Srinagar”, before starting for this place. People stay overnight or travel on lake on these boats. The gardens surrounding the lakes have lovely bright colored flowers. River Jhelum also passes through this beautiful hill station. Since it is a popular tourist destination, there are many booklets available even at hotels, which offer more information about Srinagar.

Srinagar tourism includes a visit to the city’s shopping areas in which many of the exceptionally beautiful handicrafts and embroidered clothes are sold. The place is renowned for carpets, silverware, wooden ware, cane works, leather works, metal ware, footwear, etc. Srinagar is also famous for dry fruits. Tourists are advised to confirm their room in any of the hotel in Srinagar prior to arriving.
