Best time to visit Kashmir to see snowfall– visit the place between December to March. The region witnesses maximum snowfall in Jan, Feb. However, Srinagar-Jammu highway gets closed during the season as it further increases the risks of accidents on already very narrow roads. Moreover, it would be unbearably cold. Hence make up your mind, before you plan the trip.

Best time to visit Kashmir to see snow- If you want to just play in snow and want to enjoy the whitey kind of ice and get some superb images, visit the place during end of February. Do check the weather updates which might get true sometimes. 😉 But you will get lot of snow if you visit in March however, the rates are almost at peak during this season. Hotels, Shikaara, travel- everything would be double the actual cost.

Best time to visit Kashmir Tulip Garden- Tulip Garden is one of the most beautiful gardens of India. Spring is the best time to visit the place. April and early May would be the ideal time to  visit if you want to get glimpse of blooming gardens.

Best time to visit Kashmir for honeymoon– Honeymooning in Kashmir would be enjoyable almost in every season. In fact, its’ all on you and on your idea of holidays how you want to celebrate the occasion. If it is about playing in snow and getting some beautiful pictures clicked, visit in February but if you want to just reel the romantic ride on the beautiful landscape, you should visit between April to June, when the weather is extremely pleasant.
