Kashmir has four distinct seasons, each with its own peculiar character and distinctive charm. These are spring, summer, autumn and winter. But if you ask which is the best season and time to visit Jammu and Kashmir? The answer is the best season is Summers and the best months are May, June, July, August, September. You can visit Kashmir in any of the months mentioned above in 2019. As the weather is pleasant in the summer months and gets cold in the months of winter. The valley gets covered with blossoms and the orchards are heavy with fruits during summer. This is the peak tourism season in Kashmir Valley and most of the tourists prefer to visit Kashmir during May to September

However, winter is the best time to visit the 'Jammu' region, from the months of October to March, when the maximum temperature is around 18 degree Celsius and the minimum is 4 degree Celsius on some days.

Is it Safe to Visit Kashmir?

This question has been asked many times on social forums. is it safe to visit Kashmir? The answer yes it is completely safe to visit Kashmir any time be it summers or winters, however there are apprehensions that in summers the situation in Kashmir gets volatile due to political uncertainty in the Valley, that is true that in last two decades we have seen an upsurge in political unrest in Kashmir and mostly in summers, but here is the important aspect of it which most of the News Channels  do not report. in last two decades of  violence in Kashmir not a single tourist was hurt in Kashmir by the local people in contrast Kashmir is known as the safest place for solo women travelers.

This is not just because Kashmir is dependent on tourism so Kashmiri's don't want to snatch their own bread and butter by mistreating the tourists, its in fact the social system of Kashmir that there all the tourists are treated as guests not as customers. you can knock at any door in Kashmir at any time and you are welcome with love and respect.

There are some areas in Valley which constantly remain in news for unrest and anti-militancy operations, like areas of south Kashmir, which include Pulwama, Tral and Shopian but none of them is a tourist destination, in south Kashmir the most popular tourist place is Pahalgam and it remains calm and open for tourists round the year.

Kashmir tourist guides have put their lives at risk many a times if any untoward incident had happened with their guests.Here is an example how  to that fact after saving five tourists guide lost his life in Pahalgam Kashmir. Despite very negative image building about Kashmir by many media houses Kashmir still remains the favorite tourist attraction not just for domestic tourists but for international tourists as well.

The best thing about Kashmir tourism industry is that most of the tourists in Kashmir come through referrals, the reason is simple once you visit this place you will fall in love with its unmatched natural beauty and the hospitality of the local people.

    Kashmir is the northwestern region of the Indian subcontinent. Historically the term Kashmir was used to refer to the valley lying between the Great Himalayas and the Pir Panjal range.

Cradled in the lap of majestic mountains of the Himalayas, Kashmir is the most beautiful place on earth. On visiting the Valley of Kashmir, Jehangir, one of the Mughal emperors, is said to have exclaimed: "If there is paradise anywhere on earth, it is here, it is here, it is here." The Mughals aptly called Kashmir ‘Paradise on Earth’ where they journeyed across the hot plains of India, to the valley’s cool environs in summer. Here they laid, with great love and care, Srinagar’s many formal, waterfront gardens, now collectively known as the Mughal Gardens. Anecdotes of four and five centuries ago describe their love for these gardens, and the rivalries that centered around their ownership. They also patronized the development of art & craft among the people of Kashmir, leaving behind a heritage of exquisite artisan-ship among the people and making the handicrafts of the land prized gifts all over the world.
