KASHMIR: Finally back on the Tourist map.

After a very long 24 year exile from tourism due to the political unrest, this beautiful region of excellent lakes & mountains is back to welcome its visitors. The foreign office has finally given the green light for visitors to Srinagar in Kashmir. Staying in a houseboat in Nagin or Dal Lake is an excellent way to complete a trip after a visit to Rajasthan. You can sample the Kashmiri cuisine including jasmine tea. You can take Shikara rides along the lakes or visit the excellent gardens.
There are many combinations with a trip to Kashmir. A few suggestions are as below:-
  • Cover the road trip from Delhi - Leh and then take a flight to Srinagar for a stay in a Kashmir Houseboat.
  • Take toy train to Shimla. Then take train to Amritsar via Chandigarh. Then take a flight to Srinagar for a stay in a Kashmir houseboat.
  • Cover Rajasthan, Agra & Varanasi using a rail/ hotel combination in the North India Sampler and then fly to Srinagar for a week's holiday.
  • Cover India's Golden Triangle and then fly to Srinagar for a week's stay in a Kashmir Houseboat and then fly down to Kerala to cover Kochi, the spice hills and stay in a Keralan houseboat.
When to Go: The best time to visit Srinagar & Kashmir is in the summer from mid April - mid October as the winters are cold. In terms of rainfall the best month to visit Kashmir is September where the precipitation is at its lowest.
PRECAUTIONS TO BE TAKEN: Kashmir has just recently returned from a 24 year exile from tourism. Hence, we would recommend pre-booking all transfers & excursions in advance. If you wish to book anything else in addition to what has been booked, only make bookings through our agents in Delhi and their recommended sub-agents in Srinagar. Many other local Kashmiris would like to do a hard-sell on excursions & treks. We do not advise you to avail of the same. Whilst the Foreign office have given the go ahead for visitors to Srinagar & Jammu, it has not given the go ahead for other destinations. At all times exercise common sense & caution.
