I suggest staying in a houseboat, there are so many. The owners cook breakfast and dinner in a family setting. Be ready for morning Namaz recitals(Islamaic prayers)early in the morning. It seems every family prays early in the morning and you can hear it while staying on the boat from all directions. Than, all the prayers stop instantly in that city and a sense of total calm. This is around 6am. Perhaps it was Friday? I lost track of time in paradise.:-)).

Srinagar is like a paradise. You can see the Himalaya peaks and the lakes reflection as well as the major mosque while taking a relaxing ride on the owners boat as well from the houseboat. People are very friendly and hospitable.

I enjoyed Srinagar very much. The security by Indian para-military was tight back in 1998. There were troops all over to protect people from militants. Currently, I do not know the safety situation in Srinagar. It was quite common for civilian security guards with machine guns dining at restaurants to protect customers from the militants. Again, I suggest looking into the safety situation there. Looks like things have calmed down for now.

Don't forget to book day trip bus tours to Gulmarg and Sonumarg; Sonumarg is farther north and you can see high snow peaks from distance from the bus. You can book them from central district or from your houseboat owner's residence or from tourist office in downtown.

I'm glad you are flying to Srinagar instead of riding the bus from Jammu. I went by bus and there were delays by the soldiers at some check points. Security was very tight while riding the bus. It took us over 30 hours by bus, because of spending a night at a hostel, late in the evening. The Indian para-military security would not allow riding the bus in the evenings going into Kashmir Valley due to tense security.

Happy travels.
