- SRINAGAR

This morning is a fascinating walk through the by-lanes of the old city observing the markets, heritage buildings and day to day life, as well as gleaning an understanding of Sufism. The amble begins at Badamvari (Almond Garden), awash in blossom and includes stops at a significant Sufi shrine, a famous Mughal Garden, the beautiful Jamia mosque built in 1400 AD and the wooden architecture of grand homes built by wealthy merchants. 
After lunch, visit a special village where you have entrée to the homes of master weavers to see at first hand the production and skills involved in producing famous pashmina shawls, from the spinning and dyeing, to setting up of the loom and elaborate almost lost weaving techniques such as ‘kani’.
