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.

March to Early May (15°C to 30°C): These are the best months to visit Kashmir for sightseeing as the weather is pleasant and lets you explore the lush green meadows and enchanting natural beauty of Kashmir without any obstacle. The temperature during these months varies from 15°C to 30°C. This is also the best time to trek the alluring trails of Srinagar, Gulmarg, and Pahalgam. Weather in Kashmir in May is also pleasant enough to enjoy the summer vacations with your friends and family.

December to March (-2°C to 12°C): Kashmir’s weather in December, January, and March is the best to enjoy snowfall as the whole valley is covered with snow. The entire Kashmir looks mesmerizing in these months and this is also the best time to visit Kashmir for skiing and snowboarding. The temperature during these months varies from -2°C to 12°C.

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 a 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 splendor 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 a honeymoon as the flowers in the famous Mughal gardens in Srinagar are in bloom. Early spring till mid-April, which is also the offseason in Kashmir, is ideal for those looking to get the best deals on hotels in Kashmir.

The best time to visit Tulip Garden in Kashmir is in the month of April when the whole garden blooms and looks vibrant with different species of colorful tulips.

If you are planning to visit Gulmarg, then the best season to visit Gulmarg depends on the type of activity preferred by you. If you are someone who is looking for snowfall and activities like skiing and snowboarding then October to February is the best time to visit. If you want to explore the true beauty of Gulmarg then March to June would be the best time to visit when Gulmarg blooms with colorful flowers and lush greenery.

The most famous Kashmir festival is the Tulip festival celebrated in the months of March and April when the Kashmir valley blooms with vibrant tulips. Another famous festival celebrated in Kashmir with great pomp and show is the Hemis festival. The festival is celebrated for two days during the month of May in which whole state dress in traditional attires to celebrate the festival with great joy. Besides these two, some other popular festivals celebrated in Kashmir are Shikara festival, Gurez festival, Lohri, and Urs.

Climate in Kashmir

Summer Season 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. 

Monsoon Season in Kashmir

Monsoons, between September and November, is also a good time to explore the Valley as summer crowds have thinned out by this time and best deals on hotels and packages are on offer. The Monsoon season is an off-season in Kashmir Valley however, don’t let it discourage your plans. Apple picking is the most rewarding activity to do while you’re in Kashmir during the rains.

Winter Season in Kashmir

Winter in Kashmir lasts usually between December and February. Some places in the Kashmir Valley in Winter witness a lot of snowfall while Jammu in winter has milder winter temperatures. Entire snow-clad Pir Panjal range makes winter the best time to visit Kashmir for a honeymoon. Thousands of tourists come here to enjoy snowfall in Gulmarg, Sonamarg, and Srinagar. Patnitop in Jammu is another popular hill station where newlyweds and families love to retreat.
