There is not so much to shop in Gulmarg but there are many good shopping places in Srinagar to substitute the lack of shopping opportunities in the town. Being a summer capital of Jammu and Kashmir, Srinagar boasts of multitude of exclusive items to be bought from the markets for the tourists. Hand woven silk fabrics and shawls with intricate embroidery are the specialty of the town and should be bought while getting back home. Moreover you can also shop for other traditional handicrafts made up of cane and bamboo. Besides brass and silverware, willow baskets, woolen garments and paper mache items are also quite among the tourists in Srinagar.
