Srinagar, the exotic summer capital of Kashmir is also the city famous for its magnificent Mughal gardens that bear testimony to the Mughal eye for detail & panache for symmetry. Located in close vicinity of Dal Lake the gardens comprise amazing terraced lawns, lovely fountains, numerous flowerbeds, wonderful Chinar trees and shrubs, surrounded by a peaceful environment.
Yusmarg :A two hour drive from Srinagar will take you to acres upon acres of grassy meadow ringed by forests of pine, and towering beyond them, awesome and majestic snow clad mountains. This is Yusmarg - close enough to Srinagar for a picnic, idyllic enough to make you want to stay for a few days.
Daksum : Past Mughals gardens of Achabal with their tinkling fountains , thorugh the breathtaking splendour of the springs at Kokernag, lies Daksum. Quite away from it all , tucked away in a densely forested gorge, Daksum would be completely silent but for the Bringhi river which gushes though it.
Daksum is a walker's paradise. Up the hills which are swathed in coniferous trees, past gurgling brooks. For in the hills surrounding Daksum, suddenly you will find yourself in grassy meadows where sheep are taken to pasture.
