Places To Visit In Jammu and Kashmir

From staggering summits of Pir Panjal to inviting waters of Jhelum

Among other reasons, Kashmir is renowned worldwide for unparalleled natural beauty. Between Baramulla and Kishtwar, this land of tin-roofed hamlets and scenic hill stations shelters an abundance of places to visit in Kashmir Valley. In Kashmir, one can never run out of places to explore. While Srinagar remains the kernel of bowl-shaped Kashmir Valley, smaller towns like Anantnag, Pahalgam, Gulmarg, and Patnitop are also finding their place among top 10 tourist places in Jammu and Kashmir.

As soon as the tourist season in Kashmir begins, scores of travellers from the world look to spend a few days in this scenic valley. From popular treks to charming hill stations, there are plenty of places to visit in Kashmir in summer. The Great Lakes Trek is one of the best places to visit in Kashmir in June.

The city of Srinagar is famous for sprawling Mughal gardens, tranquil Dal Lake, and religious shrines. It serves are the point of entry and departure to several pilgrim tours, trekking bases, hill station getaways, and socioeconomic trades. The city is lapped by ethereal Dal Lake which is thronged by honeymooners, families, and pilgrims alike. The wooden houseboats floating on the lake provides just the peaceful retreat newlyweds are after.

Mughal gardens show their grandeur at the foothills of Zabarwan hills, which act as an idyllic backdrop for pictures. Fresh blooms sprouting along the artificial channels in Nishant Garden and Shalimar Bagh make you wonder about the glory days of Mughal rule. Wular Lake, among the largest water bodies in the state, doesn’t get its share of visitors despite being as glossy as its counterpart within Srinagar. Chashme Shahi, Hari Parbat, Shankaracharya Temple, Indira Gandhi Memorial Tulip Garden, and Pari Mahal are other prominent places to visit in Srinagar.

Roughly 56 kilometres west of Srinagar, Gondola rides and powdery slopes in Gulmarg are a magnet for travellers visiting the valley. This hill station in Baramulla district experiences reasonable snowfall in winter, making it the heartland of winter sports in Gulmarg include skiing, snowmobiling, and sledding. The slopes on 14,000-feet-tall Apharwat peak have ample opportunities for thrilling experiences. It also offers uninterrupted, sweeping views of nearby forests, lakes, and Pir Panjal peaks. Private taxis and car rentals are available to reach Gulmarg from Srinagar.

Sonamarg and Yusmarg rank among the best places to visit in Jammu and Kashmir. Just a short pony ride from Sonamarg takes travellers to climb the largest glaciers in Kashmir. Locals agree that Anantnag district in South Kashmir is replete with must-see places like Betaab Valley, Pahalgam, Aru, and Kokernag. Further east, Kishtwar and Doda welcome trans-Himalayan trekkers beyond the valley. Saffron fields around Pompore and apple orchards in Anantnag are a sight to behold in harvest season.

    • Trip to Kashmir

      Peacock travels is a well managed and professional company but in my case they didn't provided the well located hotels and traveller friendly driver. Hotels were well maintained but very far from visiting spot. We although knew about it bcz our budget was on lower side. But biggest let down was the driver who was a bore and he was trying various tricks that will make us cancel our plan or change itinerary. Yusmarg was a miss citing security reasons. Still I do want to recommend peacock for this vacation. They might be best of the lot in Srinagar. But next time I will plan this tour by my own. Many, apart from the immense beauty of nature, I loved the people who were welcoming tourist. They were so down to earth and caring.

      Was a very pleasant and well managed trio.Amazing India Routes managed the travel very well. The driver provided was really good. One issue where the travel iteniary had to be reaccomodated due to tensions in Kashmir was not well handled by Travel Triangle initially. But after contacting multiple times they finally agreed to modify the iteniary. Times where such unforseable circumstances need to be addressed show how reliable the customer service are. Apart from this 1 issue was a smooth experience.

      Kashmir is a great place. The scenic beauty with its natural essence is something that you cannot experience elsewhere. The hosts are one of the best and value for money is something you can never get anywhere else in the globe Sonmarg and Gulmarg both were breathtaking

      Initially good time but to our surprise when we reached Hotel Jamal on 3rd day at 8 PM after Gulmarg visit to our shock we were informed that no such booking in my name. Somehow after our phone calls to travel agent he managed some other hotel. I am surprised how can travel agent confirm to the customer without written confirmation from Hotel. Though booked for four star but three star hotels. We have issues with the food quality served at Hotel specially dinner.
