I will be travelling to Kashmir in April 2015 along with my hubby,1 1/2 year old son and another couple.
Note : 1) Since I have a small baby I do not want a long road journey at a single day.
2) I do not want to avail flight on both up and down journey.
3) Need a mix of offbeat and popular places.

Here is my planned itinerary:
Day 1: Delhi to Katra/ Udhampur(Train)
Udhampur --> Kud(32Km). Night stay at Tourist Bunglow, Kud(Rs 500-2000)
Day 2: Kud--> SInthan Pass(205Km/4hrs) --> Daksum(31Km/1 hour). Night stay JKTDC GH at Daksum.
OR
Kud--> SInthan Pass(205Km/4hrs)-->Kokernag(47Km/1 hour). Night stay JKTDC Kokernag
Day 3 : Daksum/Kokernag -->Pahalgam-->Aru (100Km) .Night Stay at JKTDC Hotel Alpine/Travllers Inn/ Hotel Brown Palace/Mantoo cottage by the river Lidder
Day4 : Pahalgam sightseeing: Baisaran , Kashmir Valley, Dabiyaan (pony)
Chandanwari, Betab Valley(by car). Night Stay at JKTDC Hotel Alpine/ Travllers Inn/ Hotel Brown Palace/mantoo cottage by the river Lidder
Day 5: Aru Srinagar(100Km/4hrs) via Awantipura Ruins. Evening Shikara ride.Night stay.
Day 6 Srinagar- Gulmarg Gondola ride .Back to Srinagar. Night stay.
Day 7: Srinagar sightseeing. Stay in Houseboat.
Day 8: Flight from Srinagar-->Delhi


Questions:
Day 1 - Should we choose Katra or Udhampur?
Day 2 - Night stay at Daksum or Kokernag ?
Day 3,4 - Which hotel at Aru ?
Day 5,6- Night stay at which hotel in Srinagar ?
Day 7 - Which Houseboat ? If not a expensive one,then would like to stay on Day 5,6,7
How to book a car for the above trip ?

You should choose Katra only if you are visiting Mata Vaishnodevi Shrine.
