Travel Tips for Srinagar

Floating farms at Dal Lake

by victorwkf

Dal Lake is home to many local people, who built their houses on islands on the lake itself. As part of their daily life, these people actually have floating farms on the lake itself, where they grow vegetables. These floating farms are mobile and can be moved along the lake from place to place (interesting indeed). During summer, the Dal Lake is also filled with many floating lotus plants and flowers.

Srinagar, Kashmir

by Hind_S

My trip to Srinagar was, I believe, a few years too soon. The city still has a huge military presence, with checkpoints and armed soldiers behind sand bags pretty much everywhere. Going during low season couldn't have helped either.. there was a bit of a hostile and unwelcome feel to the place, in general. We were advised of an unofficial curfew at 6pm...in a city with only one mediocre hotel bar and not much to do. The food is.. nothing worth bragging about. The national dishes are 2 variations of what taste like spam balls in different sauces. Vegetable dishes are ok (stick to the spinach), bread is good, and the Kahwa tea when served in the traditional way is delicious. Staying on a houseboat and taking a shikara ride on the Daal Lake are the best things to do here.. the moghul gardens were blah. See one if you must. I would go again out of curiosity to see its former glory come to life again, but I'll wait a few years.
