Do not plan for visiting Kashmir between mid Novembet and mid March. Its not the right time to enjoy the valley except ski lovers.

Hello Asok Ji,

The itinerary is okay. But it would be better if you plan for October or after March. Because, during winter there will be no blooming gardens, lively river. The tourist spots around Pahalgam will be inaccessible after mid November. Harsh temperature might be uncomfortable.

Thanks Ashisji for your prompt advice. Now my dates are still not fixed- can you please guide me on selecting the best period from July to October with a try on avoiding heavy tourist rush? I cannot leave here till end of May and can only finalize the date on /after 3rd week of May AND to reserve good hotel/houseboat,etc. I will require a little more time- so please help with your expertise.
