After breakfast we will make arrangements for your visit to The Shankaracharya Temple, dedicated to Lord Shiva, situated in the Zabarwan Mountain in Srinagar at a height of 1,000 ft. (300 m) overlooking the city of Srinagar. The temple which dates back to 200 BC was visited by Adi Shankara and has ever since been called as Shankaracharya Temple. After paying obeisance at the temple, we will take you to the Mughal Gardens - Chashma Shahi (The Royal Spring), Nishat Bagh (The Garden of pleasure) & Shalimar Bagh (Abode of Love). To make your stay in Srinagar adventurous, we may take you to Astanmarg - a beautiful small hamlet on the outskirts of Srinagar. It is rather interesting to reach the spot for paragliding though. It is close to a village called Dara about 15 kilometres from Srinagar on the Nishat-Shalimar garden road. The last 1.5 kilometres is a lovely hike to the jumping ground. As you walk up, the lovely scenes below open up - on a clear day you can see most of Srinagar, Dal lake, Nishat and Shalimar gardens along with the beautiful villages below.
