The geographical location of Srinagar is such that it does not have a typical monsoon season. There is hardly any rain and the showers last for a maximum of 10 minutes. However, Srinagar does witness autumn, which is quite uncommon in the Indian subcontinent. This is most undesirable time to visit Srinagar as it does not provide much scope for travelers to explore the popular destinations or to go out for sightseeing. The localites too prefer to stay indoors during this season.
Each season carries a charm of its own during which, the capital city of Srinagar, looks and feels like a heaven on Earth. To make the most of it, the best and the most popular season is that of summer.
