Day 4 : Srinagar-Pahalgam-Srinagar (90kms) (B,L,D)
This morning we take our breakfast in the houseboat before we begin our journey for Pahalgam. On the way to Pahalgam, we stop at a largest Dry-Fruit show room where you can purchase all sorts of dry fruits produced in Kashmir. You can also purchase high quality saffron which is famous all over the world competing with the production of Iran and Spain. We continue our journey for Pahalgam to cover a distance of 90 Km’s from Srinagar. Pahalgam actually means “The valley of Shepherds” and known as a famous recreation resort. It is like to go in to the lap of nature to do many things-one of the best-that “do-nothing”, just enjoy the beauty of nature. Pahalgam is a popular tourist destination located on the bank of Lidder River at an altitude of 7200 ft above the sea level. Being there, we have options to either take a pony ride to visit some gorgeous peaks (Baisaran also called Mini-Switzerland, Kashmir valley & Dabiyan). Or else, we can arrange a local car for you to visit Betaab Valley & Chandanwari to witness the stunning beauty of the resort. Hot lunch will be served at the local restaurant. In the evening, we will drive back to Srinagar and drop you in a local market where you can shop around to purchase handicraft items, Pashmina shawls and other local items & souvenirs. With the help of Shikaras we will cross the lake to reach our houseboat where dinner will be served before retiring to the bed rooms. Overnight stay in Houseboat.
