Kashmir is beautiful in all the seasons. In fact, everyone tells you to visit Kashmir at least 3 times: once in summer, once in winter and once in autumn to enjoy its beauty in all its glory.

Visit in Summer: For beautiful flower filled meadows in Pahalgam and for the tulip season.

Visit in Autumn: For the Apple, Walnut harvest season and to see the Chinar trees in their orange glory.

Visit in Winter: To enjoy snowfall and the snowcapped mountains.

Visiting Kashmir - A note: While Kashmir remains a perfect destination all year around, travelers should stay informed about the region's current political situation before planning a visit.

Kashmir is a volatile disputed territory, with constant attacks from the neighboring countries. Don't be surprised to see military presence everywhere. However, it is considered a safe place to travel, as long as you keep abreast of the political situation before travelling.
Scams are quite prevalent, like any economy that relies mainly on tourism, so be wary of that as well.

Surrounded by the majestic peaks of the Himalayas, Kashmir boasts of unparalleled natural beauty that attracts adventure seekers and nature-lovers from all across India and the world. When you experience its majestic mountains, lush green valleys, crystal-clear lakes and fragrant apple orchards, you won’t be surprised as to why it is often dubbed as ‘Paradise on Earth’. Kashmir is also steeped in history, with Mughal gardens, ancient temples, and mosques that tell tales of its past.  While the summer months give you lush greenery, in Winter, a blanket of snow envelopes this valley and transforms Kashmir into a magical wonderland.
