Best Time To Visit Srinagar

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

The best time to visit Srinagar is from April to September. During this time, the whole place is covered with blossoms and looks aesthetically beautiful. Compared to the rest of the places in the country it is quite pleasant in Srinagar during summer which provides much-needed relief from heat and sweating. Not too cold and not too hot, the summer season is the best time to visit Srinagar. One can visit all the major attractions and enjoy the pleasant climate too, between the months of April to October. Not to forget, one of the major attractions in Srinagar, the Tulip Garden, is in full bloom during the month of April. However, the best time to visit Srinagar for snow is from October to March. 

Let's take a season-wise look below for the ideal time to visit Srinagar:

April to June (14°C to 30°C): The best season to visit Srinagar is definitely the summer season when the main festival of the place which is the Tulip festival also takes place. Srinagar becomes a whole new charming place in the summer months from April to June. The temperature is quite pleasant and ranges between 14°C to 30°C.

June to September: Monsoon season is not the best time to visit Srinagar. Srinagar hardly witnesses any rain in a particular season, so there is no monsoon season as such. There is autumn instead of monsoon. It is not a good time to plan a visit to Srinagar as there won’t be much for sightseeing and also the natural beauty is less charming as compared to other seasons. 

October to March (-2°C to 10°C): Winter is the best time to visit Srinagar for snow. Those who love the white sheet of snow and the snow adventures, then this is the perfect time to go for an excursion to Srinagar. The average temperature during this time is -2°C to 10°C. Some adventures to try out are snowboarding, skiing, walking the Chadar lake trek etc. 

Climate in Srinagar

Summer Season in Srinagar

Summer is sweaty, dusty, and irritable for most of us. To escape the intolerable heat of the cities, most families go off to regions lying at a higher altitude. One such place is Srinagar. An event which is not to be missed during this period is the Tulip Festival which takes place in the first two weeks of April. Asia’s largest Tulip garden is in its full bloom at this time and provides eye catching sights with dazzling rainbow colors of the tulip flowers. Also summer would be the best time to visit Srinagar for honeymoon as well.

Monsoon Season in Srinagar

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.

Winter Season in Srinagar

For skiers and lovers of snowfall, the best time to visit Srinagar to see snowfall is between October to March. One can enjoy a winter marvel that Srinagar turns into, with temperatures dropping to as low as minus 10 degree Celsius. However, the much talked about and popular Shikara ride would have to go off the list because the Dal Lake gets frozen. For skiers, the slopes of Gulmarg become a paradise during the winter season. Others can enjoy the view of the snow covered slopes and mountains, and even indulge in games like snow balling, rolling through the snow, making a snowman and what not! However, for those who aren’t fans of chilling cold and have a low resistance power to such climate, this isn’t the best time to visit Srinagar.

    Rajdeep's 7 days trip to Srinagar

    We had an awesome trip organised by travel triangle via Zippgo Travels. Our tour manager Ms Aaliya was the one who made our trip a huge success. She was very helpful for us right from day one while booking the trip, customising as per our requirements and till the very end of the trip. She was always available over call if anything was required during trip and made us available in quick time. We made a right decision in giving her an opportunity to serve us and she did in a very right way. When It's kashmir holiday you can trust Ms Aaliya, Zippgo and entire team. We were provided with good hotels and great food. Even vegetarians can manage quite easily. Enjoyed Kashmir Qawah! Gulmarg was with heavy snowfall. Beautiful rides at Pahalgam and last but not the least our houseboat "Anarkali" was a great experience with a sikhara ride arranged at Dal Lake.

    Sunil's 7 days trip to Srinagar

    Big thanks to Pine Leaf Travels!! We had a wonderful Kashmir trip... Sohil & his brother, Rasifa... they were so flexible, provided great hotels & transport package. They have a great team, everything was well organized, we have no words to express. Also we must thank our driver Showkath so nice person, fantastic driving and he made sure of our safety and joyous trip. He also helped us for great shopping in the right place for good price. Many people want to visit Kashmir but because of the situation, many would have not made their visit to Kashmir. I must say Kashmir is paradise, the garden of eden... Kashmir has strikingly 2 different seasons... Summer will have beautiful landscapes, greenery and filled with blossoms and Winter is awesome frozen land, great for skiing, snow bike, Gondola cable car, etc., in Gulmarg. We loved and enjoyed the winter season in Feb 1st week... Everyone will love the beauty of Kashmir it is really a Switzerland in india. Hotels: The Golden Tulip - Srinagar - Is an excellent hotel, privately located, superb food, very well maintained. So humble hotel & restaurant managers, and all the staffs!! Royal Park - Gulmarg - Is a beautifully located hotel on a hilltop with entire Gulmarg view from the hotel. great food!!

    No, you will not be able to witness snow in Srinagar in the month of September. Only from December to February, you will be able to witness snow in Srinagar.

    One should pack light clothing in the summer season as the weather is not so chilly and cold. A light shawl or jacket would work for evenings.
