How to reach
Depending upon the modes of travel from other parts of the country to Srinagar, one has the following
1. By Air: From the airport to the university campus situated in Hazratbal, one can hire a cab/radio taxi which would charge something like Rs.700-800/. There are several university campuses in Srinagar & the taxi driver shall have to be told to take him/her to the Kashmir University campus at Hazratbal-(Dargah, as it is popularly known locally).
2. Those coming by train/air upto Jammu & plannig to travel to Srinagar by road (Taxi/bus/private car) usually end up at the TRC (Tourism Reception Centre) in Srinagar from where one can take an autorickshaw to the Kashmir university campus as explained above. Since the charges as quoted by the driver can in general be negotiated, the normal charges should not exceed Rs.250/.
