Srinagar Trip Experience ( Email)
Hi AbhishekJst been to Srinagar, so sharing experience..Did few stuff myself and few from AV
Pahalgam - dont take pony rides (dangerous and costs ranges from rs.300-1500 depending on bargaining ability); there is a beautiful way for trekking or a broad road available for walking also (not known to ppl)
Gulmarg- Avoid pony rides, go for cable car rides to both levels....
Sonmarg- Ferrys would charge you exorbitant Rs. 4000 for a 2 km ride for visiting a glacier (which is not there) whereas it can be done within Rs.1000. Walking option also available..
Other places u must visit: Aharbal, betaab valley
Best source of gathering local information: Talk to the police/traffic police personnel at various places
