Things To Do In Jammu and Kashmir

Adventures, encounters, and memories await!

Pony rides in Sonamarg and Pahalgam are among the popular things to do in Kashmir. A few hours ride on winding trails takes visitors through dense forests and beautiful meadows. The ride is reasonably priced for its duration and is suitable for visitors of all ages. Camping and trekking near Sonamarg are popular among thrill-seekers.

Gulmarg is a hub of several adventure activities in Kashmir, especially during winter. December through February when the terrain is covered in snow, tourists take gondola rides and skiing lessons in Gulmarg. The sweeping views from Apharwat peak mesmerise honeymooners and children. Exploring the Gurez valley in North Kashmir is one of the best things to do in Kashmir. The valley is home to a few nomadic tribes that retain their old traditions and live a simple life. Taking a wooden boat ride on Dal Lake is one of the wholesome family activities to do in Kashmir.

Lay back and sail on the placid waters of Dal Lake, admire the sights of Pir Panjal mountains, ski down the powdery slopes in Gulmarg, go on a shopping spree in Srinagar’s Lal Chowk, take a pony ride in Sonamarg, opt for paragliding in Aru, or join the batch of pilgrims on their way to sacred Amarnath Cave. The fun and the range of things to do in Kashmir never end.

Pashmina shawls, antiques, salted tea bags, willow baskets, and local spices are some of the best things to bring back from Kashmir. Saffron grown in fields of Pompore is one of the most expensive spices in the world. Local vendors sell woollens made from Pashmina, Kashmiri carpets, and handicrafts in the Old Bazaar and street markets. Bargain while shopping in Srinagar and you will definitely find a good worth for your product. While shopping in old Srinagar, one can also take the self-guided heritage walk to admire the city’s architecture.

The white waters of Lidder River are easy or moderate making the river ideal place to do rafting. Once you’ve visited the Betaab Valley near Pahalgam, do find time to conquer the noisy waters of river Lidder. Paragliding in Sonamarg, Bhaderwah, and Gulmarg will leave you speechless as you take it the majestic views of mountains. If you would rather take things slow, there’s a golf club in Gulmarg which is open to the public in summer. Besides all the adventure and fun activities, gorge on delectable Kashmiri cuisine and take a cup of salted tea which will help you maintain body temperature.
