Located on the banks of the Jhelum river, at an elevation of 5,200 feet, Srinagar holds the distinction of being the “summer capital” of J&K. Srinagar is well known for the”Dal Lake” and its many colourful ‘shikharas’ and house-boats. It is also known for dry fruit, saffron and traditional Kashmiri handicrafts like handwoven woollen shawls, carpets and rugs.
Not far from the hustle and bustle of Srinagar is a pristine little hill-town called Pahalgam. The area holds a rich cover of vegetation, the dominant forest consisting of conifers which account for over 90%. There are many species of rare, endangered and protected species to be found among the vegetation here. Wildlife enthusiasts are bound to spot some Hangul, Musk deer, Serow, Brown bear, Leopard, Rhesus macaque, Grey langur, Wild bears etc, apart from a large variety of exotic mountain birds. Due to the constant threat of illegal border crossings, the Indian army is always patrolling the area and is on constant high alert. However, the area is safe for tourists.
Legendary beauty, prime location and proximity to Srinagar make Gulmarg a premier hillstation in the region. Originally called “Gaurimarg” by shepherds, its present name was given in the 16th century by the Mughal Sultan Yusuf Shah, who was inspired by the sight of its grassy slopes emblazoned with wild flowers. But Gulmarg is not merely a mountain resort of flowery beauty- it also boasts of the highest green golf course in the world – at an altitude of 2,650 meters. The journey to Gulmarg is half the enchantment of reaching there — roads avenued by tall fragrant poplars, rice fields interspersed with picturesque villages and lots of pretty fragrant flowers. There is a point known as “View Point”, where travellers generally stop to get a lungful of fragrant air and take in the beauty of the white-capped mountains.
