Our Kashmir tours start off in Srinagar Kashmir, the largest city in the region and famous for the scenic Dal Lake. To give you a more authentic experience of Kashmir culture and hospitality, we’d be staying at the houseboats. Houseboat in Kashmir is a pretty wooden boat with beautiful interiors that you’d find lined up on one side of the Dal Lake. There are some beautiful palaces and gardens in the region which give a peek into the rich history of Kashmir. You can take a stroll around Jama Masjid, Mughal Garden, Hazratbal Garden, and Shankaracharya Temple when you are here to enjoy beautiful Kashmir.

Also, Kashmir is famous for the shikara ride on Dal Lake and you shouldn’t miss the boating experience when in Srinagar. The backdrop of the Pir Panjal ranges is truly magnificent! You can also dress up in the traditional dress of Kashmir called Phiran and take photos while on the shikara for your perfect Instagram shots!

Once you’ve experienced Kashmir beauty in Srinagar, we’ll move on to our next destination on this Kashmir package - Gulmarg! Gulmarg means ‘meadow of flowers’ and rightly so, as the valley is bustling with a myriad of flowers during spring. To enjoy such scenic beauty, book the Kashmir honeymoon package with your partner during spring when Kashmir temperature is also pleasant! ‘When in Gulmarg, you should also not miss out on the famous gondola ride that takes you to the top of Kongdoori Mountain!

Gulmarg is also famous for being a skiing destination during winter when temperature in Kashmir reaches sub-zero. If snowfall in Kashmir is on your mind, the best time to visit Kashmir is December - February. However, with weather Kashmir being unpredictable in the winters, keep an eye on Greater Kashmir news.

Next on our Kashmir tour, we’d visit the ‘Village of Shepherds’ - Pahalgam. A scenic hamlet in Kashmir, Pahalgam is famous for its lush meadows, pristine river streams, and untouched rugged beauty. You can also make a snowman and enjoy Kashmir snowfall here if you’re visiting during winters which is the best time to visit Kashmir for snowfall.

Very close to our Pahalgam stay are the two popular Kashmir tourist places - Aru Valley (12 km) and Betaab Valley (15 km). While Aru is famed for being the grounds of heli-skiing, Betab Valley is of Bollywood fame and has been named after Sunny Deol-Amrita Singh starrer blockbuster ‘Betaab’. You can spend some time with your partner by the beautiful Baisaran and Tulian Lake if you’re here on Kashmir honeymoon packages.

We’d then take a very scenic drive to Sonmarg Kashmir along the same highway that takes you to Leh Ladakh. We’ll visit the Zojila Pass here as a part of the itinerary of Kashmir. It’s the second highest mountain pass on the Srinagar - Leh highway at approximately 3,528 metres. This is the last part of the Kashmir tour as after this, you’d be heading back to Srinagar with lots of memories! But worry not as you can always be back to the mountains with Moustache Escapes tours as and when your heart desires! After all, the mountains are always calling!
