Our 9 days Kashmir trip itinerary with family

“Kashmir is not just a place, It is an emotion that everyone wants to experience!!!!”

travel plan for kashmir

“You have got Kashmir and Himalayas. You are the richest when it comes to natural beauty!” – While we were playing in the snow at Mount Titlis on our trip to Switzerland, our guide remarked vividly. Years later, I can now comprehend the statement completely. As I relive every moment of our 9 days trip to Kashmir. After hearing, reading and witnessing the beauty of Kashmir through books, media and our own parents, we waited for years to finally be able to experience this “heaven on earth”. There is for sure, that every Indian wants to visit this paradise at least once in his lifetime. We have compiled this complete guide for a trip to Kashmir that will help you plan your trip to Kashmir in a smooth, hassle free manner. And here we bring to you our 9 days Kashmir trip itinerary with family.

travel plan for kashmir

This Kashmir trip itinerary for family is based on the trip to Kashmir that we took with our family in April, 2022. It can vary for others based on their requirement. So, we will provide some alternate itineraries towards the end of the post. To get the details of how to make the hotel bookings in Kashmir, how to book a cab in Kashmir, where to stay in Kashmir, what to eat in Kashmir, how to go shopping in Kashmir and even general tourist scams in Kashmir, read our upcoming comprehensive Kashmir travel guide.

Table of Contents

Day 1 : Arrival in Srinagar

We took a flight to Srinagar from Bangalore. It was a connecting flight. As there was no suitable budget direct flights from Bangalore to Srinagar operating at this point. We had a flight from Bangalore to Delhi and then another flight from Delhi to Srinagar. We reached Srinagar early in the morning, around 8:00am. The April-June time frame is peak tourist season in Kashmir. So, the influx of tourist is high. There was a huge queue at the airport exit, after navigating it we took a cab to our hotel, Walisons Hotel, Srinagar .

travel plan for kashmir

Since we had a night flight, and we arrived early at our hotel, our rooms were not ready. So, we headed straight to the Tulip Gardens near Dal Lake . Since, the Tulips were in full bloom at this point, we didn’t want the chance to miss witnessing them in full bloom. We dropped our luggage at the hotel. And then requested the driver who dropped us from airport to hotel to take us to the Tulip Gardens. By 8:30am, we reached the gardens. There was no queue at the ticket counter and no rush inside.

We thoroughly enjoyed the gardens. And then by 10:00am, we headed back to the Tulip Garden parking lot. Where we had our late breakfast.

travel plan for kashmir

While visiting the Tulip Gardens of Kashmir, I couldn’t help but draw a comparison in my mind with the Keukenhof Tulip Gardens of Netherlands which I had visited on my trip to Europe, from Amsterdam. Each one has it’s own surreal beauty. And I couldn’t really tell which one is better than the other. So, I will say, visit both ! (I am always greedy when it comes to travel :D)

After spending considerable time witnessing the tulips and having some picture perfect instagram moments with them, we returned back to our hotel. This time, our rooms were ready. We shifted to the rooms to catch up on some much needed sleep. And retired to bed after an early dinner later.

Note: You can also arrive in Srinagar by road from Jammu. Jammu is well connected with rest of India through road and rail network.

Day 2 : Places to visit in Srinagar

Today, post breakfast, we started our exploration of Srinagar – our one day of sightseeing in Srinagar . From this day onwards we had booked a dedicated cab till the end of our journey.

The first site we visited was Pari Mahal. It is a beautiful garden around a 7 storied building. But the best part is the views of Srinagar, Dal Lake and the surrounding mountains that you get from the garden. Take a virtual tour of Pari Mahal with us in this vlog :

Next we headed to the Mughal Gardens of Srinagar. We visited Chash-me-Shahi Garden and Nishat Bagh. Although there are other gardens also in Srinagar including Shalimar Garden, after visiting 2 mughal gardens of Srinagar, we felt we had enough 🙂 . Since, all these gardens look alike beyond a point.

travel plan for kashmir

So, next around 4:00pm, we headed for Shikara ride. After much hassle and bargaining, we and the shikara owners came to an agreement. And finally we had a 2.5 hrs Shikara ride on the Dal Lake . Which included visiting all the famous spots around the lake, stopping for tea and snacks and finally visiting the shops on the bank of the Dal Lake.

travel plan for kashmir

Watch our vlog on our Dal Lake Shikara ride here .

Day 3 : Srinagar to Pahalgam Transfer

Today, post breakfast, we traveled from Srinagar to Pahalgam . We reached our hotel in Pahalgam, the Oswal Cottage , by afternoon. And had lunch. Post this, we enjoyed the beautiful sceneries around. And just relaxed. However, some of our friends headed to explore Bisaran Valley. It takes around 3 hours for the complete round trip. Although Bisaran Valley is only 6km from where we stayed. But the terrain is rough. And only accessible through a horse ride. Since we were with kids and moreover our younger one hates any animal interactions, so, we didn’t go. Although if you are not constrained like us, I will highly recommend visiting the Bisaran Valley. Because it is very beautiful.

travel plan for kashmir

Day 4: Pahalgam to Aru Valley, Betab Valley and Chandwari

Today we has another action packed day in our Kashmir trip itinerary with kids. As, we spent the day visiting Aru Valley, Betab Valley and Chandwari from Pahalgam . These are the most famous and beautiful valleys around Pahalgam. Which have completely different charms in different seasons.

When we arrived here in April, the spring was in full bloom and the valley was on the verse of welcoming summer. Green meadows spread in front of the snow clapped mountain peaks reminded me of some of the beautiful scenes we had encountered in Tuscany while doing day trips from Florence when we spent almost a week in Italy.

travel plan for kashmir

Day 5: Pahalgam to Gulmarg Transfer

Today, post breakfast, we started for Gulmarg from Pahalgam. Watch our road trip experience from Pahalgam to Gulmarg on this vlog . Actually, Gulmarg is the most famous ski resort destination in Asia and India. By the time we booked our accommodation, almost everything in Gulmarg was either full or exorbitantly charged. So, we booked our stay at Hotel Pineview in Tangmarg which is almost 10km before Gulmarg. Nevertheless, we reached here by noon.We had our lunch on the way. After reaching Tangmarg, our driver connected us with a guide who was going to accompany us to the Gondola ride.

travel plan for kashmir

The guide further took us to a shop where we hired shoes, jackets and bought gloves and caps for all of us to be used the next day. Also, we rented a vehicle to take us till the Gondola. Since our regular cab drivers prefered to return back to Srinagar. The shoes were to be packed and placed in the car the next morning. So, booking them in advance really saved our time.

Day 6: Gulmarg Gondola Ride

Finally arrived that day of our Kashmir Trip itinerary with family which the kids were waiting for since day 1 – the day of Gondola Ride in Gulmarg . Today, we woke up really early in the morning. And started around 8:00am from our hotel in Tangmarg for the Gulmarg Gondola point. We had pre-booked our Gondola ride online through this government site. Also, we had booked for both phase 1  and phase 2  . Since when we reached here, the snow in phase 1 had reduced a lot. After arriving at the parking for Gulmarg Gondola, we walked to the Gondola and reached there just in time, around 8:30am. Still there was already a huge winding queue. And it was only at 10:30 that we reached the Gondola cable car.

travel plan for kashmir

As we sat into the Gondola and started our journey up the mountains, I couldn’t help recall the same experience scaling the heights of Mount Titlis on a day trip from Lucerne with Aashi. Who was precisely the same age at that time as Ishi is now. And once we reached the top, we had a gala time playing in the snow. The memories are as fresh as if it happened yesterday. I guess that’s why we need to spend more on experiences and less on material things.

We reached phase 1 in around 10 mins. But we decided to go to Phase 2 first. Because this year, the summer started early and there was not much snow in phase 1 left. So we went to Phase 2. However, the weather soon turned our plans upside down. It started with a snowfall and then turned into a snow storm. I and my friend decided to return back to the Gondola station with the kids. As the temperature dropped to -5 degrees and the kids started to feel cold. However Abhishek and 2 other friends decided to take the plunge and enjoy snow activities.

Day 7: Gulmarg to Srinagar Transfer

After having a gala day at the Gulmarg Gondola, we started back for Srinagar from Gulmarg on the 7th day of our 9 days Kashmir Trip Itinerary with kids. We started post breakfast from our hotel in Tangmarg, Hotel Pineview . And reached our houseboat, Chicago Group of Houseboats in Srinagar by lunch time. Yes, today we were going to experience staying on a houseboat in Srinagar . The access to the houseboat was through a short Shikara ride from ghat no 9 on Dal Lake. After reaching the houseboat and dumping our luggage, we again took another shikara to return back to the main road for lunch. Since lunch was not provided on the Shikara. After having lunch, we just relaxed in our houseboat in Srinagar. And prepared for the next day when we planned to have a day trip .

Day 8: Srinagar to Doodhpathri day trip

On the second last day of our 9 days Kashmir trip itinerary with family, we embarked on a day trip to Doodhpathri from Srinagar. Although for the past 2-3 days we were having a tussle to select between Sonmarg and Doodhpathri.

travel plan for kashmir

Sonmarg is yet another winter destinations in Srinagar. It witnesses a lot of snowfall in the winters. So much so that you can only travel here with special chained vehicles that can navigate snow. However, the snow cover had reduced when we visited here in mid-April. But the temperature was still very low here.

Doodhpathri on the other hand is a lush green meadow. It was not that chilling cold, not that crowded and touristy also. So, finally we picked Doodhpathri over Sonmarg. And then had a wonderful day basking in the sun in one of the most beautiful valleys of Kashmir.

travel plan for kashmir

Day 9: Flight back from Srinagar

Finally came the day to say goodbye to Kashmir. We boarded our morning flight from Srinagar and embarked on our way back home. With memories of a lifetime. However, we want to come back to Kashmir. This time in the winter season. To witness the completely transformed landscape of Kashmir. And the winter wonderland that it is called. Hope that materialises soon.

Alternate Kashmir trip itinerary with family

The 9 days Kashmir trip itinerary with kids that we did was a really relaxed one. Since we were traveling with little kids, we didn’t want to overexert ourselves. But, if you are pressed by time on your Kashmir trip itinerary with family, or want to cover alternate things, here are some alternate Kashmir trip itinerary with family options for you. Some of these are aggressive on timelines, you can opt them when traveling solo, with friends or backpacking.

Kashmir Trip Itinerary Option 1 : 5 days trip to Srinagar, Pahalgam and Gulmarg

travel plan for kashmir

  • Arrive in Srinagar in the morning. Get an early checkin at your hotel if possible. If not, at least dump your luggage. And head to the Tulip Gardens. Spend couple of hours here. Have lunch. And post lunch take a Sikara ride on the Dal Lake. Stay near Dal Lake if possible.
  • Srinagar to Pahalgam day trip. Start early in the morning by 7:00am, reach Pahalgam by 9:30am. From here, take a day trip to explore Aru Valley, Betab Valley and Chandanwari. Return to Srinagar by 6:30 or 7:00pm in the evening
  • Srinagar to Gulmarg day trip. Today, go straight to the Gulmarg Gondola from Srinagar. Pre book the gondola ride tickets. Reach here by 10:00am. And then enjoy the snow activities in Gulmarg. For a complete detail of how to book the Gondola and how to enjoy your day in Gulmarg, read this post.
  • Do a day trip from Srinagar to Sonmarg today.
  • Spend half the day sightseeing in Srinagar. Visit some of the famous gardens, Pari Mahal and some other attractions. Post noon, checkout from your hotel and start back home.

While staying all 5 nights in Srinagar, you can spend a couple on a houseboat – a different kind of experience.

Kashmir Trip Itinerary Option 2 : 3 days visiting Pahalgam and Gulmarg

travel plan for kashmir

If you are really pressed by time, I will suggest, skip Srinagar. And head straight to Pahalgam and Gulmarg. Do a day trip to each of these from Srinagar. And then head back to your home on the third day. Of course, you will miss the Sikara ride on the Dal lake and the other attractions that Srinagar has got to offer. But then you have to make a choice when you are that limited by time.

Kashmir Trip Itinerary Option 3 : Srinagar, Pahalgam, Kargil and Ladakh

travel plan for kashmir

This is a very different itinerary than the rest two I proposed above. If you are visiting Kashmir in summer months, like June, there is not much of snow to enjoy. So, you can altogether avoid the snow destinations like Sonmarg or Gulmarg. Spend the first couple of days in Srinagar enjoying the local sites. And then do a day trip to Pahalgam from Srinagar on the third day. On the fourth day head to Kargil. And from there, embark on a trip to Ladakh for the next 5 days!! Making the most of your time in Kashmir. And combining two most exotic destinations of India into one single trip!!

Hi, In case your are aware, could you please share how many days in advance the Gulmarg Gondola ride tickets can be booked ? Is the portal ( https://www.jammukashmircablecar.com/ ) the only online option to book the tickets in advance ? On this portal I don’t see any ticket availability between May 15th till June 25th 2023.

Hi Siddharth, we had booked the tickets almost 10 days in advance. The site opens the ticket booking window in stages. So, it might still not be open for May. This is the official site to book tickets online but if you are facing difficulty booking, you can ask a travel agent to book it for you. They will know the exact dates when the window is going to open

THANKS FOR THIS DETAILED INFORMATION. CAN YOU PLEASE LET ME KNOW WHICH IS THE BEST MONTH OF THE YEAR FOR PICTURING THE HEAVENLY BEAUTY (as you have mentioned ). THANKS. DO PRO PHOTOGRAPHY, WILL CARRY EXPENSIVE EQUIPMENT, DONT WANT EQUIPMENT TO GET WET.

Thank you! We visited in April, and we saw the tulip festival. The valley was green while there was snow still in the upper reaches of Himalayas. If you want to witness the snow season then visit in Dec – February

Hello Neha, Need your guidence I m going to srinagar on 21st march 24 till 29th march. Apart from 21st n 29th, 22nd to 28 there will be a sight seeing. Actually i came across ur blog aftrr i made my itinerary, but not fixed yet.

The point is do u think this itinerary is practically possible? Another question is I booked flight tickets only. And confused to go with package for this itinerary or to book the hotel n cab by ourself. I would like to receive your suggestions. Thanks in advance.

Hi Sachin 1. I am not sure of stay options at Doodhpathri. We saw some constructions going on when we visited, but not sure if any decent hotel or resort has come up. So, if you dont get an accommodation, I would suggest to take a day trip to Doodhpathri from Srinagar. You can do Pahalgam and then directly go to Gulmarg from there and finally come back to Srinagar, spend an extra night there and do day trip to doodhpathri Rest of the itinerary looks good. You can also do a trip to Sonmarg from Srinagar

If you are comfortable you can book hotels on your own. I have added the cab details in my post from whom we booked. But if you dont want to, packages are also competitive. They were not very flexible in terms of cancellation with full refund, so , I booked on my own.

Have a wonderful trip!!

Hi Rajesh, we are not organising the trips, we are travel bloggers…travel…write about the experience…repeat 🙂 having said that, if you are asking what dates we traveled, it was April 9 – 16

Hi, Thanks for all the details. Well written. Can you please share details of rates for cabs, horse rides, house boats etc. I am planning to travel in June along with my aged parents. It would be helpful with these details.

Hi Shoba, the houseboat cost will vary with season and also what category of houseboat you select. For us, it was around 6k for one night. I will update the cab driver’s phone number in the post and also the name of the agency through which we booked the cab. Again, the cab price varies. When we landed there, there was a huge surge in demand for cabs and we had to pay 2k above the initially agreed price to be able to retain the cab. It cost us ~25k per cab.

Thanks and nicely put. How much was the overall cost for the trip, exclusing flights from hometown. Rough estimate should help us preplan

For our family of four, the hotel costs around INR 2500 per night on an average and then rest was food, entry fee. Roughly I would say around INR 40000 – INR 45000 all in all

Very very nicely written and encouraging to plan a trip immediately.

Need guidance from you. I’m planning to visit in June with old parents and and kids 14 and 10 years. Can you please suggest, which places I should not plan with parents if it requires considerable walking.

June I am choosing that it will be pleasant and bearable cold for family. For snow playing which will be place for 1 day (return by day end ) or 2 day with stay.

Thank you! Yes, June will be a pleasant weather. Neither very hot nor very cool. In places like Pahalgam and Doodhpathri you can choose to trek to further heights if you want, if parents are not comfortable, they can stay in the valley while you can go explore and come back. Bisaran valley might be difficult for them as it involves a bumpy pony ride. They will definitely enjoy a stay at Dal Lake in a boat house. You can just sit on the porch and enjoy your day there. Gulmarg, Srinagar, etc. shouldn’t be a challenge. Most of the gardens of Srinagar have few stairs but beyond that there is no other challenge in reaching there or walking around. Hope this helps

Very well put together. Did you guys book cabs before reaching Kashmir or are they easily available there?

Could you share some reliable cab agents numbers? Thanks 🙂

Thank you! We booked the cab a month in advance. As there is a lot of rush in the season and if you are booking on the spot, you might still get a cab but will have to pay much more over the usual cost. The agency we used was TravelXplore Kashmir Cab

I had been there in late September but missed the Pari mahal, as not awre of this jem. Also it was the monsoon so in pahalgam we had rains so could not complete the aru or betaab valley. Looking forward to kashmir once again to enjoy them and maybe this time I will have more time in hand:)

Nice and informative post. Visit Gurez Valley and Mughal Road next time when you will be in Kashmir.

Sure thing!

Beautifully written but it would have been more informative if the rates of cabs, horse ride etc were shared.

Good point. we will update the article with these details

I leave in Mumbai please send me dates of travel

Plan Your Trip to Srinagar in Kashmir with this Travel Guide

Land of Lakes and Gardens

travel plan for kashmir

Ng Hock How/Getty Images

Srinagar, in the Kashmir Valley in far northern India, is one of the top 10 hill station in India. A place of splendid natural beauty, it's often referred to as the "Land of Lakes and Gardens" or the "Switzerland of India". The gardens have a distinctly Mughal influence, as many of them were cultivated by Mughal emperors. Although civil unrest is an ongoing concern in the area due to conflict with nearby Pakistan, calm has been restored and visitors are returning to the area. (Read more about how safe is Kashmir now for tourists? ). Nevertheless, be prepared to see army personnel and police everywhere. Find out important information and travel tips in this Srinagar travel guide.

Getting There

Srinagar's Sheikh ul-Alam airport was completed in 2009 and is owned by the Indian Air Force. It can be reached most easily by flight from Delhi . There are also flights from Jammu, Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Chandigarh, Amritsar, Kolkata, Bangalore, and Lucknow.

The Jammu and Kashmir State Road Transport Corporation operates an inexpensive bus service from the airport to the Tourist Reception Center in Srinagar. Otherwise, expect to pay about 1,000 rupees for a prepaid taxi (2018 prices). App-based taxi services such as Uber and Ola don't operate in Kashmir.

If you're traveling on a budget and are feeling adventurous, you may try taking an Indian Railways train to Jammu (these trains start from Delhi or pass through Delhi from other cities in India), and then go by shared jeep/taxi to Srinagar (traveling time around eight hours). Buses also run but they are much slower, taking around 11-12 hours for the journey.

A rail project is currently underway to link the Kashmir Valley with the rest of India, but it's well behind schedule and isn't expected to be completed until after 2020. Tunnels are also being built to cut the travel time from Jammu to Srinagar by around five hours.

Visas and Security

Foreigners (including OCI cardholders) are required to register upon arriving and departing from the airport. It's a straightforward process that requires the completion of one form and only takes about five minutes. Do note that US government employees and government contractors who have security clearance are not permitted to visit Srinagar, as Kashmir is off-limits. Traveling to Kashmir could result in loss of security clearance.

The kind of experience you want to have in Srinagar will determine the best time of year to visit. It gets very cold and snows from December to February, and it's possible to go snow skiing in surrounding areas. If you want to enjoy the lakes and gardens, visiting between April to October is recommended. April to June is the high season. The monsoon usually arrives by mid July. September to October is also a good time to visit, and is not so busy. Foliage turns lovely deep, warm colors in late October, as the weather becomes colder. Temperatures get quite hot during the day in summer, but are chilly at night. Make sure you bring a jacket!

What to See and Do

Check out these top Srinagar attractions and places to visit. Srinagar is most well known for its houseboats, a legacy of the British that has rapidly multiplied. Don't miss staying on one!

Tips for Staying on a Houseboat

Avoid booking houseboats from tour operators in Delhi. There are plenty of scams and you never know what kind of boat you'll end up with! Reputable houseboats can be booked at Srinagar airport, and many have websites as well. Have a read of these tips for choosing the best Srinagar houseboat to find out what you should consider.

Where Else to Stay

The main commercial and tourist district, where most of the accommodations are situated, is Lal Chowk in the heart of Srinagar. It's located within close walking distance of local markets and the Jhelum River. Walking time to Dal Lake from Lal Chowk is about 30 minutes.

If you prefer to stay closer to Dal Lake, you'll find plenty of budget hotels to choose from along Boulevard Road, which runs along beside the lake. Hotel JH Bazaz and Blooming Dale Hotel Cottages offer good value for money in the Dal Gate area next to Dal Lake. Swiss Hotel Kashmir , located just off the Boulevard, is a popular budget choice -- and here's a pleasant surprise, foreigners pay reduced rates (usually, foreigners are charged more in India)! Hotel Dar-Es-Salam is a popular boutique hotel that overlooks the lake

Otherwise, if money is no object, the best luxury hotels are the Lalit Grand Palace and the Vivanta Dal View .

Hospitality Home is the most popular homestay in Srinagar and it's also inexpensive.

The annual Tulip Festival takes place during the first couple of weeks of April. It's the highlight of the year in Srinagar. In addition to being able to see millions of blooming tulips in the biggest tulip garden in Asia, cultural events are held.

Indian tourists often prefer to conduct their trip on an auspicious note, with a visit to Vaishno Devi shrine. It's best reached by helicopter from Katra, about an hour and a half from Jammu. Otherwise, these  popular tourist places in Kashmir can be visited on day trips (or longer side trips) from Srinagar.

Travel Tips

If you have a cell phone with a prepaid connection, your SIM card will not work as roaming has been blocked in Kashmir due to security reasons (postpaid connections are fine). Your hotel or houseboat may provide you with a local SIM card to use.

Note that being a predominantly Muslim area, alcohol isn't served in restaurants and most businesses shut for prayer at lunchtime on Friday in Srinagar. Bars can be found in select upmarket hotels though.

If you're flying out of Srinagar airport, do get there with plenty of time to spare (at least three hours before departure), as there are lengthy and multiple security checks. There aren't any restrictions on cabin luggage when flying into the airport. However, when departing, airlines often won't allow cabin luggage except for laptops, cameras and ladies handbags.

If you go to Gulmarg, you can save yourself a lot of time and hassle by booking gondola tickets online or in advance at the Tourist Reception Center in Srinagar. You'll face huge lines at the gondola otherwise. In addition, avoid visiting Pahalgam during July as it will be extremely busy with pilgrims going on the Amarnath Yatra .

Do be aware that you should dress conservatively to respect the local Muslim culture.

Kashmir Travel Itinerary 7 to 9 Days

18 oct kashmir travel itinerary 7 to 9 days.

This is my Kashmir travel itinerary for a long-awaited journey and a lifelong dream for my dad. Like most Indians, I have had my presumptions and imagination about Kashmir. After all, it is one of the most talked-about subjects in Indian politics, a subject that we love as much as we love tea.

I had tried visiting Kashmir 2 years ago. But with a sudden twist of the historic event of the removal of article 370 followed by the coronavirus pandemic had led me to cancel my plans.

After 2 years of yearning and pent up energy for ‘revenge travel’ after being locked indoors for months, I was determined to make this trip. However, like always, I find it hard to get information online, even with thousands of Indians with cheap Jio networks flocking to these destinations.

Kashmir is often called ‘paradise on earth’ and so much of it is true. You could easily barter your Switzerland trip for this place and won’t miss a thing. But you need to know quite a few things to make your way around. Here is my itinerary and more that you may find useful.

Itinerary to Kashmir

Srinagar -> Gulmarg -> Pahalgam -> Wular Lake -> Sonmarg -> Srinagar

Day 1 – Arrive in Srinagar

Day 2,3 – Leave for Gulmarg. Spend 1 or 2 days/nights in Gulmarg.

Day 4 – Travel from Gulmarg to Pahalgam. Takes about 4 hours. Stop at Pampore.

Day 5 – Spend the day in Pahalgam.

Day 6 – Travel from Pahalgam to Sonmarg. Takes about 6 hours. Stop at Wular Lake.

Day 7 – Spend the day in Sonmarg

Day 8,9 – Travel to Srinagar. Sightseeing in Srinagar. Return home.

Another alternative is to travel to Srinagar from Pahalgam and stay there for the rest of your trip. You can instead visit Sonmarg on a day trip from Srinagar and return the same day.

How to travel around in Kashmir

The answer largely depends upon how many people you are travelling with. If you are travelling solo, you can find shared cabs (sumo), small buses and even hitchhike between cities in Kashmir. However, you will need to find out with the locals about the schedules. No trains are available inside Kashmir.

However, there is very limited public transport inside the cities/towns. So in most cases, you will have to hire a local cab for the day to take you around the tourist destinations. These cabs can cost around INR 3000-4500 per day depending upon the distance and the destination you are covering. 

In case you are travelling in groups, try and go for day cabs and split the rent. Large groups can also opt for taking a full-time cab with them. Take note that cabs/cars from a different state number plate are often unwelcome and banned from entering some locations. So it would be better and cheaper to get a local cab in most cases.

We rented a traveller to go aroun

Horses and ponies are also another very common way to travel short distances. Several locals in the countryside breed and keep them to offer rides to tourists. And personally, I think that most people treat their animals well.

So you will often find yourself looking for a pony ride at places that are not easily accessible on foot. A pony ride usually starts at INR 800 for 2 hours and added INR 200 per additional hour from there.

Locals offering ponies for rides

Srinagar is the gateway to Kashmir and it should be the first stop to move ahead anywhere, even if you don’t spend much time in the city. Srinagar is accessible by road and flight that operates frequently from Delhi and even a few other major cities.

To me, Srinagar had this dreamy feeling of a mesmerizing shikara ride on the dal lake with snow-capped mountains in the background. On top of that, the ‘Shalimar gardens’ and other historical buildings built by Mughal emperors have only been the tales from our textbooks. 

To be honest, I was fairly disappointed. It’s not that this is not true. But for the most part, Srinagar looks like any other city in India and parts of it resembles old Delhi city and even Lucknow with crowded streets, traffic jams, loud and boisterous people and the wafting smell of delicious food.

If you have come in search of the real Kashmir, I would suggest finishing up your sightseeing in Srinagar quickly and head ahead as soon as you can. Here are some of the places that you must visit in Srinagar:

1. Dal Lake

2. Shalimar Bagh Mughal Garden

3. Nigeen Lake

4. Hari Parbat

5. Jamia Masjid

6. Lal Chowk

7. Indira Gandhi Memorial Tulip Garden

8. Nishat Garden

9. Shankaracharya Temple

10. Dachigam National Park

Srinagar is the centre point for almost all major tourist destinations and you may have to pass the city repeatedly to move to another location.

Check out our blog on the best places to visit in Srinagar for more details

Shikara boats on Dal Lake in Srinagar

Gulmarg is a must-visit place when in Kashmir. At least for first-time travellers. I haven’t been to Switzerland (yet) but I think that you can see an insane similarity between the topography of the two, both during the summers and the winters.

Gulmarg is just 2 hours away from Srinagar. You would be surprised to know that there is no local population that resided in Gulmarg. The place is only accessible for tourists and the Indian Army. The only locals that live in the town are the ones who travel during the day for work.

Therefore, it is only natural to find the place deserted at times and extremely tourist-centric, sometimes at the point of being annoying. Also be ready to pay steep prices for things like pony rides, gondolas, guided tours and viewpoints. These prices almost double during winters and the arrival of snowfall.

There is no other place like Gulmarg in winters and if you love the cold or want to experience the beauty of snowfall, you should try and visit the place between December to March but get ready to pay handsomely for it.

Here are some of the places that you must visit when in Gulmarg.

1. Apharwat Peak

2. Gulmarg Gondola

3. Alpather Lake

4. Kilanmarg

5. Maharaja Hari Singh’s Cottage

6. Children’s Park

7. Maharani Temple

Lovely Green meadows of Gulmarg, Kashmir travel itineary

Pahalgam is 2.5 hours road ride from Srinagar and 4-5 hours from Gulmarg if you are making this trip directly.

Pampore is really nothing more than a small regular town, much like the rest of India. But the area around Pampore is popular for saffron fields where purple saffron flowers bloom during the autumn season from which saffron strands are extracted.

Of course, catching these flowers bloom will depend upon the time you visit. But if you want to buy authentic real saffron and related produce like almonds, walnut, raisins, fresh spices, honey, gulkand, Kashmiri kehwa etc. you should stop by and visit some of these places located right on the highway to Pahalgam

Pahalgam is a small town located east of Srinagar that gradually moves towards the higher mountains that you have been looking at the backdrop so far. Unlike Gulmarg, the town is home to locals and you will find a small market, local shops, homes and people moving around the town. I also found it less touristy and more homely.

There are a few places to visit inside Pahalgam town. Here are some that you can explore even on foot if you are living around the main town:

1. Baisaran Road

2. Mamaleshwar Temple

3. Poshwan Park

4. Dara Shikoh Garden

5. Tulian Lake Trek

6. Tarsar Marsar Trek

But some of the best sights are located out of town and you will need to make small trips to visit them. A full day trip to all of these places combined will finish up your sightseeing. You will need to hire a local cab since private vehicles are not allowed in most of these areas. The fare for a half-day cab is INR 2100 and INR 3000 for a full day.

If you are looking for more information on the places to visit in Pahalgam and the popular treks, check out our blog .

Pahalgam Market

Aru valley is one of the popular places for sightseeing near Pahalgam where tourists flock for some fantastic views of the dreamy mountain ranges. It is around 30 minutes ride from Pahalgam and I suggest you get a local cab to take you there. 

Not only the ride to the valley is beautiful, to me, but the valley itself is also comparable to the photographs I had seen of Switzerland. The mountains turn green during the summers with occasional wandering horses and their owner hiking in the wilderness.

Once you reach Aru valley, you can make a stop at the nearest park that is a fantastic place for your memorable photos of Kashmir. We rented out some local Kashmiri garments and went overboard with the cliche touristy poses. Renting out garments cost us INR 100 per person.

Right next to the park you can also take some ponies to reach the interiors of Aru valley that takes around 30 minutes. Do make the trip if you haven’t had your share of pony rides. The result is a lovely meadow and patch of grassland that should be even more beautiful during the blooming season.

View on the way to Aru Valley

Betab Valley

On the other side of Pahalgam is Betab valley on the way to Chandanwadi. The valley’s name comes from the hit Bollywood movie ‘Betab’ starring Sunny Deol and Amrita Singh that was shot here. In fact, the two decades from the 60s – 80s is when Bollywood made Kashmir its go-to destination for shooting.

Today, you can find a sprawling park in Betab valley. The Lidder river makes its way through the park with icy cold and crystal clear water that the locals drink from directly. It later merges with Jhelum. The park is huge with a walkable stone trail that runs across. You can also enjoy a small meal on the riverbank of Maggi, tea, coffee or ice cream from a nearby stall.

However, you will catch the best views of the valley on your way to Chandanwadi. Stop your car and get down to take in the aerial view of the Lidder river, blue in colour, cutting and making its way through the wide meadow.

Chandanwadi

Chandanwadi is a small and extremely important town to the northeast of Pahalgam. It is the starting point for the Amarnath yatra, a long arduous and religious journey that several Hindus make to the endpoint at the Amarnath caves. It is also the last village on this route.

If you are fascinated by the Amarnath journey but are not making it, I would suggest you can make your way to Chandanwadi and find more about it. You will also find the river that makes its way from the Amarnath caves and maybe hike a couple of kilometres to get in the feel. Make sure you have warm clothes for this place since it can get pretty chilly.

Chandanwadi

Including this in your itinerary is completely an option since you will have to take a detour on your way to Sonmarg and maybe spend an additional 2 hours visiting it. But we did that and I will tell you about it.

Wular Lake is HUGE! You can see that on the map. Geographically, it is the biggest freshwater lake in India (Sambhar lake is saltwater and Chilka lake is a brackish or semi-saline water lake bigger than this).

Since it is so huge, you can access it from several points. We made a halt at Wular vintage park and I think the view to the lake was simply mindblowing. You don’t have any shops in the area so get some snacks or a meal with you and make a picnic out of it. The garden is beautiful and a great resting place for late afternoon.

Wular Lake

Sonmarg was our last destination in our 9-day trip itinerary and luckily, we had the best of it there. When I was looking up for stuff to do in Sonmarg earlier and really nothing came up. So, don’t rely on the internet.

The most popular place to visit in Sonmarg is Thajiwas glacier. And I think that you must not miss it. While most of the local guides will convince you that you need a pony to reach there, if you are fit enough to hike 5 km on slightly uneven terrain, you can also make this journey on foot.

We did one way on a pony (costs up to INR 600 per pony) and returned back on foot. The views are amazing. At the glacier, you probably won’t find any snow during the peak in summer. But it’s still cold up there and you can hang around for tea and Maggi.

You can read more about places to visit in Sonmarg with popular treks on our blog

City view of Sonmarg

The next trip from Sonmarg is towards zero point. While it shows just 6 km from Sonmarg, its actual distance is 23 km. Zero-point refers to the border point between Kashmir and Ladakh. Only local vehicles are allowed to make this journey so hire one if you don’t have one already. It could cost you around INR 3000.

The journey itself is exhilarating. You can find snow-capped mountains in the distance even at the peak of the summer. You can also observe the terrain changing from bright green mountains to dry yellow ones with distance. We found some large blocks of ice from last winter that melts into icy cold water streams and makes tiny waterfalls.

We crossed the Zoji La pass and saw the construction of the tunnel that will open up Ladakh all year round (currently its closes in winters). The zero point lies just ahead of Gumri where you can find a war memorial and a small temple that you must make a stop at. A small cafe run by the army also serves tea, Maggi and momos.

Saying goodbye to Kashmir

No matter where ever you are, you need to travel back to Srinagar to travel back. If you are travelling back by air, make sure you reach the airport with an ample amount of time since the security checking is rather strict.

Kashmir will imprint strong memories for you. Memories of mountains and Himalayas that you will never find anywhere on the planet (even if they look alike). If you decide to make another trip, you can also decide to travel deep in the mountains to some of the lakes with trek time that could range from 3 – 10 days.

Best time to visit Kashmir

Winters in kashmir.

Now if you love winters and the snow, I will definitely suggest that you visit Kashmir once in the winters. Especially Gulmarg. But it comes with its own restrictions.

On one side it is extremely cold where the temperature drops down to several degrees minus zero. On the other hand, your travel and movement os fairly restricted since most of the roads are blocked with snow and only small vehicles are allowed to pass. On top of that, the prices are insanely high.

But I still think that the price is worth it and you must visit Kashmir during the winter at least once in your life

Gulmarg in Winters

Summers in Kashmir

As beautiful are the winters, summers are also a fantastic time to be in Kashmir. Especially if you are looking for some respite from the heat. Although Srinagar still remains quite hot. You can find relatively better weather in Gulmarg and Sonmarg.

It is also a good time to travel long distances and cover a lot of places in Kashmir. Tourist activities are at their peak corresponding to the number of tourists that flock here. Several places that are closed off during the winters are open only after the snow melts during a few months in summer.

Most of the treks to lakes deep in the mountains takes place during this time. You can also plan all your adventure activities then.

Spring and Autumn

I think these are probably the best months to go. Also called the ‘shoulder’ season, spring is when the snow has not yet melted in a lot of places in Kashmir. You can catch snow and frozen glaciers near Gulmarg and Sonmarg as late as April. Plus, the steep prices have come down and there is the ability for more movement.

Autumn is also a fantastic time. It is when the saffron flowers bloom in the valley and with a little effort, you can find these rare views. The weather is a little chilly but the days are warm. The tourist activity also subsides after a busy summer so you can get great prices on hotels and flights.

If you are going in search of some snow, plan your vacation in mid-October and you will be able to catch some fantastic views, at least in some areas.

A Happy Dad after his dream trip

After you checkin, rest till evening. In the evening, proceed towards Dal Lake for an amazing sunset boat ride. The ride typically lasts for 1 - 1.5 hours and shall cost you about INR 500 - 800 per person. Make sure that you bargain. During the ride, you will come across people in boats selling snacks, kahwa (traditional Kashmiri tea), artifacts, etc. You will also pass by the floating market. The prices here can be a tad bit more expensive compared to land costs.

P.S. Even though this experience is slightly expensive, we strongly recommend it. The views are to die for, and movies such as Bajrangi Bhaijan were shot in these places. 

Post this trip, return to your hotel for dinner and call it a day.

Pahalgam and return to Srinagar

1. The land cost in Kashmir is expensive compared to other destinations (for hiring pony, local cabs, renting winter wear, etc.). Make sure that you bargain for a fair price and also carry sufficient amount of cash with you. While ATMs are available in Srinagar, they are sparsely available in other locations and online payment is not always an option.

2. If you are traveling during winter, make sure to carry sufficient amount of winter wear such as thermals, jackets, sweaters, etc. While gumboots are available for rent in places with heavy snow, you must carry woollen socks and a good pair of shoes.

3. Make sure to carry your essential medicines with you since medical shops may not be accessible everywhere.

4. While aerial shots of Kashmir are beautiful, make sure that you ask around for local regulations related to flying a drone. 

5. Please leave for airport early on your departure day since there is security checking before entering the airport. Please make sure to factor in atleast 30 - 45 minutes for this, based on the crowd at the airport.

Kashmir Travelogue – A Few Days in Paradise

kashmir travelogue

This article, and the next ones in the series, are an account of my first visit to Kashmir. While writing this Kashmir Travelogue, I am really hoping to give you a true picture of how you can plan a trip here, things you should keep in mind, places you must explore, and experiences that you must gain.

Forbidden paradise is what I was calling it before the trip actually. My thoughts on Kashmir were the same as the rest of the world. The very idea of visiting Kashmir makes people nervous and it did the same with me.

But then things changed when I went and spent some time there, rode my bike through its valleys, and got talking to its people. My trip to Kashmir was much more than enjoying the lush green mountains and clicking numerous photos. It was an experience in itself, one that I will cherish for the rest of my life.

If you have any questions, you can contact me on Instagram . For all other details on Kashmir like mobile connectivity, public transport, taxi services, and several other tips, please take a look at How to Plan a Trip to Kashmir – A Complete Travel Guide .

For getting the best hotel rates, and taxi charges, and to organize your trip to Kashmir, you can speak with Kunal @ 9910 402 252. Give him my reference and you will surely get a discounted rate.

Quick Navigation

Kashmir Travelogue

The first time I landed in Srinagar was about a decade ago while returning from Ladakh. Was I nervous back then? Yes definitely. I stayed in the city for a night and got out first thing the next morning.

The same routine followed in the coming years as well. Kashmir was just a stopover while we went riding to Ladakh. The only place I visited in all these years was Dal Lake in Srinagar city and that was pretty much it. Never did it occur to me to spend some time in Kashmir itself and visit the place that is known as a Jannat for its scenic beauty.

But after exploring the Himalayan regions of Uttarakhand, Himachal, Ladakh, and Spiti for years, Kashmir was bound to happen sooner or later.

Where to Go?

It all really started with a simple idea and that too several months in advance. A close friend of mine, Shoaib, and I were talking about how it had been a long time since we were out on a long trip together. We agreed we must plan a trip to someplace new sometime soon.

We talked about a few places and I suggested Kashmir, which neither of us had really been to. After that, there was not really much of a discussion and we both immediately agreed.

Next came the question of when. Through my blog, I met a Srinagar Local a few years ago. Faisal runs a motorcycle rental agency in the city. I called him and he suggested that we should plan for either August or September as it would be all lush green then.

Neither Shoaib nor I could afford to be away from work in September, and visiting Kashmir before or around the 15th of August did not sound like a good idea. Hence 3rd week of August was finalized.

vargis khan

How and When?

After that came “for how long”. This one proved to be a really short discussion because 9 days were all that we could afford, including 2 weekends.

Last but not least was the question of how to go. First, we thought about traveling by my Thar. But that meant 2 days spent going to Srinagar from Delhi, and then 2 days coming back home. So out of 9 days, we will spend 4 days just going to and coming back from Kashmir.

Hence, we dumped the idea of driving and decided to book a flight instead. That way, we could just fly in and out of Srinagar and rent bikes from Faisal for traveling locally. We will be able to dedicate all 9 days to exploring as much as possible.

Now all this was happening several months in advance. Our trip was finalized for late August and we booked our tickets in early May, about 4 months before the travel dates.

Then in early June, It just so happened that I was talking to another close friend of mine, Lavish, on a different topic when the idea of asking him about coming along occurred.

Shoaib, Lavish, and I had been on several trips together before and I was actually surprised that I did not ask him sooner. When I mentioned the plan to Lavish, he too agreed. After about half an hour of getting his leaves approved, his flight ticket too was booked.

The only difference was that Shoaib and I were both in Delhi. Lavish however would have to first travel from Dehradun to Delhi and then fly to Srinagar.

After numerous discussions and taking inputs from Faisal (and after multiple changes), the following itinerary was decided. This however was just the initial plan. I was certain that the actual travel will turn out to be completely different.

  • Arrive in Srinagar and head straight to Gulmarg – Day 1
  • Travel from Gulmarg to Doodhpathri and reach Srinagar by evening – Day 2
  • Srinagar local sightseeing – Day 3
  • Srinagar to Pahalgam – Day 4
  • Pahalgam to Aharbal and Srinagar by evening – Day 5
  • Srinagar to Gurez – Day 6
  • Gurez to Sonamarg – Day 7
  • Sonamarg to Srinagar – Day 8
  • Fly Out of Srinagar – Day 9

I wanted to rent motorcycles for the entire duration of the trip. But Faisal had prior bookings he had to keep up with.

So for the first 2 days, it was decided that we would rent a cab and then take the handover of motorcycles from Faisal on Day 3. The driver would pick us up from the airport and take us to Gulmarg.

After this, it was pretty much just the wait for D-Day to arrive and getting the travel plan ready. We literally counted the days to the day of the trip and all 3 of us were quite excited.

Final Itinerary

I kept changing the itinerary multiple times trying to find the best way to explore the best that I could. Faisal of course was my primary source of information. I really thank the guy for being so patient with my wild amount of questions.

Mentioned below is how we finally ended up traveling. You can also click on the links to read about our journey on that particular day.

  • Delhi to Srinagar – Day 1
  • Srinagar to Gulmarg – Day 1
  • Sightseeing in Gulmarg – Day 2
  • Gulmarg Gondola Ride – Day 2
  • Trek to Alpather Lake – Day 2
  • Sightseeing in Gulmarg – Day 3
  • Gulmarg to Doodhpathri to Srinagar – Day 3
  • Srinagar to Aharbal Waterfall – Day 4
  • Aharbal to Peer ki Gali – Day 4
  • Srinagar to Yusmarg – Day 5
  • Sightseeing in Srinagar – Day 6
  • Srinagar to Gurez Valley – Day 6

Kashmir Travelogue – Conclusion

All three of us knew that this was going to be an amazing experience. The last time I was so excited about a trip was when I first visited Ladakh. And we weren’t wrong. It indeed turned out to be a grand journey; one that was going to be etched in our memories for a long time.

Agent ordered to refund RM5,000 for cancelled holiday to India

Putrajaya-based travel agent to pay rm31,000 for unfulfilled umrah trip, contractors ordered to pay for abandoning projects.

SIX holidaymakers who had booked a winter holiday to India, only to have their travel plans dashed when the Covid-19 pandemic hit, want the travel agent to refund their money.

They had initially booked the trip to Kashmir for December 2020, but following the pandemic outbreak and imposition of the movement control order, the Kota Kinabalu-based travel agent cancelled the trip.

Farah Syahirah wants the travel agent to refund the RM5,000 paid for the package to Kashmir, India.

She had booked the 5D/4N Kashmir private trip for her husband and two children.

Joining them were Farah’s friend, her husband and their toddler.

The travel agent set up the ground arrangements for the group in Kashmir.

They paid RM5,000 in total in September 2019 for the four adults and two children.

The balance of RM1,494 was to be paid 30 days before the departure date in December.

No charges were imposed for the toddler.

“We chose the travel agent from Kota Kinabalu as the prices quoted by the company were much lower,” said Farah who works as a clerk.

The package included houseboat accommodation, transportation in Kashmir, meals (breakfast and dinner), airport transfer, tour guide, car parking and transport toll charges.

“It did not cover our return flight tickets from Kuala Lumpur to New Delhi, New Delhi to Srinagar, lunch, entrance fees at places of interest and tour activities,” she said.

Farah said following the MCO in March 18, 2020, the travel agency cancelled the package as Malaysia’s international borders were closed.

However, the agency did not give any notice of cancellation or get feedback from Farah.

“The holiday could have been postponed instead as we did not mind waiting until the situation improved and travel restrictions were lifted,” she said.

“I contacted the company and asked them to return the RM5,000 we had paid but they claimed the sum had already been forwarded to the travel agent in Kashmir.”

Farah said the company was only willing to reimburse them by offering two domestic packages as replacement but she declined the offer.

Tribunal president Lee Chee Thim ordered the respondent, who did not turn up for the hearing, to return RM5,000 to the claimant within two weeks.

Those who need assistance with regard to Tribunal matters can contact 07-227 1755/1766.

Iconic places you can’t visit in 2024!

Panchali Dey , TIMESOFINDIA.COM , TRAVEL TRENDS , WORLD Updated : Feb 13, 2024, 12:08 IST

travel plan for kashmir

In 2024, there have been reports of unexpected closures of some of the world's most iconic destinations. From the ancient steps of the Acropolis to the Smithsonian Castle in Washington, this year marks a temporary pause for some of the globe's most treasured sites.

Some reasons quoted are preservation and restoration, whereas these closures also prompt a moment of reflection on the delicate balance between our desire to explore and the imperative need to protect our cultural and natural heritage.

Read on to know more about the surprising, and sometimes hidden reasons, behind the temporary inaccessibility of these famed locations.

Smithsonian Castle, Washington, DC

The first building bearing the name Smithsonian is taking a hiatus for a makeover. The museum complex’s main building, known as the Smithsonian Castle, closed in February 2023 and will be shut for about five years for repairs and upgrades.

Notre Dame, Paris

In 2019, the world watched in horror as Paris’ Notre Dame Cathedral caught fire. Donations poured in to restore the popular icon, and it is set to reopen in December 2024 after an extensive restoration process to its original look. So, you will have to wait till December to plan a trip to this place.

Park Hyatt, Tokyo

Considered the first Western-style luxury hotel in Japan’s capital, the Park Hyatt will close in May 2024 for a ‘property-wide renewal.’ The rooftop New York Bar, which featured in the movie ‘Lost in Translation,’ will reopen in 2025.

Noma, Copenhagen

Ranked as one of the world’s best restaurants, it will be closing in 2024, but it won’t disappear entirely. In 2025, Noma plans to reopen as ‘a pioneering test kitchen dedicated to the work of food innovation and the development of new flavours.’

Phantom of the Opera, New York City

After 35 years and nearly 14,000 performances, the iconic musical took its final bow on the New York City stage in 2023, retiring as Broadway’s longest-running show.

Leonardo Da Vinci’s Vineyard, Milan

Once a tourist destination for half a century, the remains of Leonardo Da Vinci’s Italian vineyard are now in private ownership, as it has been purchased by French billionaire Bernard Arnault in December 2022. He has not made any official announcements as to when the travellers will be able to visit this site again.

Pergamonmuseum, Berlin

The Pergamonmuseum, an integral part of Berlin's UNESCO World Heritage-listed Museum Island complex and renowned for housing the world-famous Ishtar Gate, is set to undergo a comprehensive upgrade project. This ambitious initiative, encompassing the creation of a new central pedestrian zone and the expansion of exhibition halls, will result in the museum's closure until 2027.

Star Wars: Galactic Cruiser, Disney World

Despite a grand debut and its connection to one of the most widely recognized intellectual properties globally, the Star Wars-themed Galactic Cruiser at Walt Disney World ceased operations in 2023. With regard to this, Disney stated that it was a business decision.

Easter Island, Chile

To preserve its mystical Moai statues and archaeological sites, Easter Island is limiting visitor numbers. This strategy aims to protect the island's fragile environment and rich cultural heritage from the impacts of tourism. So, there are very light chances that you will get to visit this place.
