The second day of your journey begins with a morning sightseeing trip to the picturesque Mughal Gardens. Two of the many historical gardens that dot the landscape of the place are Nishat Bagh and Shalimar Bagh, located conveniently at 12 kms and 15 kms respectively from Srinagar.

Nishat Bagh, which also means ‘abode of pleasure’, was built by Asif Khan, brother-in-law of Jehangir in 1632 AD. Shalimar Bagh was built by great Mughal emperor, Jehangir as a gift of love for his beloved queen, Noor Jehan. Both these gardens are classic examples of Persian garden layout.  The gardens are located at the bank of Dal Lake with Zabarwan Mountains at the backdrop. While you return you will visit a carpet factory. Your dinner will be served at the houseboat where you will spend the night.
