Best Time To Visit Kashmir

Plan your trip during best season to experience the best of this stunning destination

Kashmir is well and truly a year round destination if you’re waiting for the best time to visit Jammu and Kashmir. All seasons, be it summer or winter in Kashmir, have their allure that beckons travellers from all over India and abroad. So, never mind when to visit Kashmir and just pack your bags and get up here.

 

Since the entire Kashmir Valley is a mountainous region in a temperate zone, it witnesses a four-season climate pattern: Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter. Jammu, being closer to the river plains, has hotter and drier climate throughout the year. Alpine meadows speckled with wildflowers, grazing herds of nomadic tribes, and orchards laden with fruits make spring in Kashmir a splendour worth witnessing. Srinagar, Gulmarg, Sonamarg, and Patnitop are best places to visit in Jammu and Kashmir during this time.

 

The winter season, December through February, is the best time to visit Kashmir for snowfall. Spring, March through May, is the best time to visit Kashmir for honeymoon as the flowers in the famous Mughal gardens in Srinagar are in bloom. Early spring till mid-April, which is also the off season in Kashmir, is ideal for those looking to get the best deals on hotels in Kashmir.

Summer, June through August, is a season of joy and it draws in a constant flood of tourists of all kinds into the Kashmir Valley. Although hotel rates are higher and solitude is hard to come by in Srinagar, but a shikara ride or a nightstay in houseboat on Dal Lake makes it all worthwhile. Summer is also when most locals indulge in many festivities such as Ramzan and weddings. Whether you’re on honeymoon to enjoy time around Dal Lake or an adventurer planning your next trek in the mighty Pir Panjal range, summer is the best season to visit Kashmir Valley. Jammu in summer experiences heat waves as bad as in Chandigarh or Delhi. Summer is also the time when pilgrims go to Vaishno Devi in Jammu or Amarnath Yatra in Kashmir.
