Best Time (Season) to Visit Kashmir

Winter - Winter set in from November onwards until early March, which gives Kashmir a different mood. Watching the snow-covered landscape from the warmth of the fire is a joy, and it is indescribable for people who have not experienced it. In winter, Gulmarg is the most favorable tourist destination in India and especially Kashmir. Warm woolens are required. It starts to snow from December end till March. Places like Gulmarg and Sonamarg are totally snow bound. 

Spring - Spring comes in from March to April, when a million flowers are spread on the ground. During this time, the weather is very pleasant with temperatures running from 15 - 25 degrees celsius. 

Summer - Summer lasts from May to the end of August. It is quite warm in the town of Srinagar, but the higher altitude places like Gulmarg and Sonamarg are still chilly. At higher altitudes, the night temperature will drop slightly to 10 degrees also. The daytime temperature in Srinagar at this time is between 30°C and 35°C. At this time, the entire valley is a mosaic of various shades of green-rice fields, grasslands, trees, etc., while Srinagar and its lakes and waterways are paradise after the hot Indian plains.

Autumn - Autumn may be the cutest season in Kashmir. When September comes, the green turns gold and then auburn and red. The maximum daytime temperature in September is about 20°C, the night temperature drops to 10°C, and it drops further from November onwards. The fallen leaves of trees make Srinagar a poetic destination.

Accessibility For Kashmira- This beautiful valley is well linked with the rest of the country via air, road, and train.


How to Reach Kashmir

By Air - The only airport in the Kashmir Valley is Srinagar Airport, now known as Sheikh Ul Alam International Airport, which has flights from major cities in India, such as Mumbai, Bangalore Pune and Hyderabad, Chennai, Kolkata etc via Delhi.
