Srinagar or the Jewel of the North.
This place is quiet and beautiful. Unlike Delhi, it’s less crowded and its overwhelming muslim majority makes you feel like if you were in Afghanistan or Pakistan 🙂 Try to step into the old bazaar and streets and you’ll definitely feel somewhere else than in India.
The fort is worth for the view, don’t miss out a tour on the lake and have a look at the architecture and especially the mosques that are stunning (one all made of wood). Srinagar is a must see !
