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.

Trip to KashmirOverall experienced is good, due to snowfall we missed some of places, rest is awasm. Gulmarg experiences
Trip to KashmirI was traveling to Kashmir for the first time and was quite confused initially which travel group to choose. After speaking to Ms. Anjum from Milli group of tours and travels, I was satisfied with the package they were providing. But what really impressed me was the service. Any requirements from our end were met with just one phone call and Ms. Anjum responded to our requests as swiftly as one could ask for. From the driver,Mr Arzoo, who was very co-operative and helpful to the multiple stays in Srinagar,Pahalgam and Gulmarg and to the car arranged, everything was spot on. I cannot thank Milli and Ms. Anjum enough for giving the best possible Kashmir trip and I would highly recommend Milli group of Tour & Travels.
Trip to KashmirMy recent trip to Kashmir with my wife became a heavenly episode with Young Bombay Travels. we had always dreaded to go to Kashmir but travel triangle made our stay absolutely safe and joyous. We planned a 6 days tour to Srinagar, Sonamarg , Gulmarg and Pahalgam. Omar Bhai would call us every morning to ensure our wellness. We were provided wonderful house boats in Dal Lake, memories of a life time. Hotels, hospitality and food were awesome. The cherry on the cake was our driver Jahangir Bhai who guided us all through with all his knowledge and experience. We look forward to making more trips with you. Thanks so much Young Bombay Travels. We wish you all our best wishes. We had an absolutely incredible trip that was very low stress due to the tremendous effort of the travel team! My wife and I could not have been happier with our experience working with this travel agency. We're sorry that we can only give this travel agency 5 stars -- we'd have preferred 10 stars or more! Special thanks to Zara and Lubna for excellent communication. Keep up the good work guys. Thanks and love you all.
Trip to KashmirHotels and houseboat provided were very good. Also the cab for travel was good but the driver didnt help us much with places to watch in Gulmarg which resulted in more expenses for us. We completely felt like the driver misguided us here in Gulmarg with the local guide. Umeena the travel agent, helped us throught in this tour and responded very fast. Definitely travel designers provided great service but the only thing to improve for them is to guide/educate visitors about the places and local guides. Also if they can give payment options through credit card it would be nice. Enjoyed Sonamarg and Dal Lake houseboat. The New Zealand (name of the houseboat) was great and the responsible person of that boat had taken care of us and also I want to mention that the night our group stayed in Dal Lake houseboat was the coldest in Srinagar in 28 years with formation of ice on the lake surface.
Trip to KashmirKolahoi hotels are best ... dolphin service very poor .. travel agent meer vai very help full Gulmarg
Trip to KashmirIt was a very nice experience in terms of holiday. Agent and every where people were helpful & cooperative. I have suggested my friends to go for same. Only experience bad was with weather due to which our 4 day trip extended to more 4 days, flight cancellations and all. Rest overall experience in visiting places was awsum & superb. Gulmarg being the best ever memorable trip for us.
Trip to KashmirThough I was skeptical on how the arrangement would be, it turned out to be a great vacation. The arrangement was perfect and hotels were good. I would definitely recommend the Young Mumbai for planning vacation in Srinagar..
Trip to KashmirKashmir is really natural beauty. We enjoyed so much. Gulmarg is ultimate place. I never forget it.
Trip to KashmirWe booked our Trip from Katra to Shiv Khoro to Patnitop to Jammu, due to our late departure from Vaishno devi we are unable to go to Shiv Khori, hence next day we will proceeds to Patnitop, our driver stops the Cab many time on the way to meets his friends and relatives, hence almost 2 hours had been lost in transit, when we reached patnitop, we enjoyed Padora Chowk and Children Park, some where we listen the loud music we enquire from local end they said there is a cultural program hence we approached our driver to take us the destination, he said there is no such cultural program, we have a fixed schedule to go to Nathatop and Sanasar Lake, next day when we go to Nathatop and approached our driver to go to Sanasar Lake then he refused and giving many excuse that there was a mud and my car willbe fall there due to whether problem, believe me there was a clear sun shine no such incidents happen there, we inquire about the roads from local tribes they said no such incidents happening there, many other vehicles will also go there, but he refused to go there, on the way to Jammu he again stopped at many other places to meets his friends and relatives, overall experience was very bad with Travel designer, and even our Travel triangle adviser didnt want to get in touch with us on tour. Even in Jammu he has come to 11 AM to take us further at Raghunath Temple, didnt want to say anything else, but make sure will never booked any package from travel triangle in future.
