The old part of Srinagar is difficult to reach by taxi because of narrow and twisting roads, but who says you cannot visit them any other way! Traverse the Jhelum River in doongas
(slow boats) and see the rustic allure of this part of Srinagar. The maze-like streets with battered old houses are huddled together. White bearded men puff on hookahs
and sip tea while waiting for customers to visit.
