You will be picked up from your hotel in the morning and driven to the top of Shankaracharya Hill located on the Zabarwan mountains. The hill offers a stunning perspective from the highest point of Srinagar. On the hill is a temple dedicated to the Hindu God Shiva that dates back to the 2nd century B.C. It is now named after the sage, Adi Shankara, who attained enlightenment here in 750 A.D.

With their unmistakable terraces and central channel of fountains, these gardens have been described to be as close to paradise as possible.
