Advice Planning for my srinagar tour


I am planning to travel with my family to srinagar (we are 2 adult and 2 child 5 and 10 year)

We have 5 nights -arrive 12 june in afternoon flight and depart 17 june in morning flight.

already booked a hotel near dal lake for 5 nights on room only basis.

Have a total budget of Rs 12000, i know its a small budget but i want to manage it in this only whatever possible, for meal and transportation,sightseeing. Please advice what would be the best plan and itinerary .

My idea to go for a day trip to gulmarg and another day trip to pehalgan by hiring a Indica car

You can do Gulmarg, Pahalgam and Sonmarg in day visits from Srinagar. It would be Rs.1800 (Indica) for round trip for each place.

My suggestion; First day after arrival you can relax in & around Dal lake, shikara ride etc.

i) Second day - Leave in the morning for Sonmarg & surrounding, return back by evening.

ii) Third day - Gulmarg, Gondula ride etc & return back in the evening.

iii) Fourth day - You can plan for local sightseeing in Srinagar like Shankaracharya mandir, Hazrat bal mosque, Jamia Masjid, 3-4 gardens around, Shikara ride etc. This you can even shift to last day.

iv) Fifth & Sixth day: Check possibility whether you can stay for a night in Pahalgam. it's a Good place to be around. Also a Taxi taken from Srinagar will not work in Pahalgam. You have to hire a local taxi for local sight seeing.

v) Sixth day - Return back in Srinagar.
