The Best Time to Visit
If you are planning to visit the panoramic valley of Kashmir in the near future, the best time falls during the months of March to October. During this period the weather conditions in Kashmir and surrounding areas are favourable for touring around. Interestingly, the period covers three major seasons in Kashmir:
•Spring – March to Early May
•Summers - Early May to Late August
•Autumn – September to November
In all, the beautiful blossoms of spring, the fresh breezy weather of summer and the gold and red shades of autumn endow the peak season with excellent atmosphere for Kashmir travel. From December to early March, the beautiful winter season for Kashmir covers the entire valley with a white blanket of snow. If you are a sport lover and enjoy chilling weather, winter is the best time to visit Kashmir.
