Jannat - E - Kashmir (2 - 7 July 2022)
Day wise itinerary specially designed by Wander Womaniya for women only solo trips in India
Day 1: Welcome to Kashmir (Paradise on Earth) with Doodhpatri
The group meets and leaves for Doodhpatri which is also called the Valley of milk. Visit the beautiful & serene valley and witness the untouched beauty of Kashmir. Doodhpatri is mostly ignored by people, and thus it is unspoilt and does not have restaurants or huge establishments. While you can take a horse (additional charges) to reach the river, we recommend you to trek your way and back to soak in the Kashmiriyat.
Proceed back to Srinagar from Doodhpatri, Overnight stay in Srinagar
Day 2: Gulmarg Day Trip
We will have our breakfast packed and proceed towards Gulmarg. Enroute you get to see the beautiful Tangmarg town and drive ahead on a scenic drive of 14 KM to Gulmarg. Later, begin a short tour of Gulmarg. Gulmarg has been a resort for the kings like Yousuf Shah Chak and Jehangir, who used to visit frequently. Gulmarg boasts Asia's highest and longest cable car project, the Gulmarg Gondola. The two-stage ropeway ferries about 600 people per hour to and from Kongdoori Mountain, a shoulder of nearby Afarwat Peak (4,200 m (13,780 ft). You can opt to take the Gondola cable car ride (the famous 08 minutes rope way - optional & chargeable). Descend back to Drung is a beautiful destination 15 km from Gulmarg, visit Drung waterfall (if time permits).
Later proceed to Srinagar, overnight stay at Srinagar.
Day 3: Srinagar to Pahalgam (Shopping time & Lidder Valley)
After breakfast, we drive to Pahalgam via Pampore, Avantipura and the village of Bijbehara which is famous for being the breadbasket of Kashmir and Chinar trees. There will be a shopping stop where you can buy Saffron, Kashmiri Rajma, Walnuts & Kahwa amongst many other offerings. In Pahalgam, check in at the hotel and spend the rest of the day at leisure. We recommend you enjoy the breeze sitting by the Lidder River. Overnight stay at the hotel in Pahalgam.
Day 4: Baisaran Trek (Mini Switzerland)
Have your breakfast & head to Pahalgam main town. Here we start our short & easy trek to Baisaran. The trek can be muddy & dirty as the snow melts a lot during this time and mixes with the soil. There is an option of taking a horse too (Optional & chargeable) but then they don't allow you free time at Baisaran hence we recommend the trek.
Overnight stay at Pahalgam.
Day 5: Pahalgam to Srinagar & Houseboat Experience
We start the day by driving back to Srinagar, where you will be taken to Dal lake. A shikara will take you to your houseboat, followed by a one-hour sunset Shikara ride from our side. (It can be extended at an additional cost). Staying at a houseboat is a must-have experience that makes your Kashmir trip complete.
