Although I think we caught Kargil at ...

We looked around the Dal Lake and stopped at the beautiful Mughal Gardens. The whole place is surrounded by massive mountains and has a different feel from the rest of India. It is more peaceful and what is special is that it is clean! Not as much rubbish on the streets is quite a unique view here.
We had some Punjabi veg food in the evening (as that is all our driver Anuz will eat), and left back to our houseboat to crash for ...
