Hi

Although I have travelled frequently in India, I have never been able to get to Kashmir. The Australian Government issues warnings regarding travel in Kashmir every month- it could be dangerous, as you probably know.
Hopefully one day the fighting will end, and we can visit this most beautiful part of the world.

Have a look at this website for weather details:

There are umpteen budget hotels in Srinagar.Nehru hotel must be one of them,I have not heard of it.Safety is your personal perception for that matter Delhi roads are no safer.If you plan to visit Gulmarg,Sonmarg and Pahalgam the average cost of taxi would be around INR 1500/-.

Aside from Rajasthan, Kashmir is a special place for me. Been there several times and never disappointed. There has been fighting in the outer regions in Kashmir for decades now, and I would not worry about it in Srinagar.

Personally, I feel that a part of a stay in Srinagar has to include accommodation on the Lake Dal house boats. Look into the history of the British houseboats on the lake.

Also try to include a sunrise boat ride on Lake Dal. it is truly surreal and not to be missed. If you have a chance I recommend visiting a rug/carpet factory and attend one of the sales presentations. A good way to do it is to find out from your hotel (preferrably the house boats), if there is a tour group going to a factory and time your visit accordingly. It is like stepping seveal hundred years back in time, has to be seen to appreciate what I mean.

Good luck, and enjoy Kashmir. It is truly worth it.

Do not rely on information re safety on a travel forum.
Things can change very quickly in Kashmir.
Check the local newspapers...

Absolutely correct.
There are many many destinations that have a similar level uf unrest that are still frequented by travellers. The key is to stay informed. My opinion should by no means, be the only opinion to be considered.

Travel Tips for Srinagar

Attractions outside of Srinagar (Part 1)

by victorwkf

Although Srinagar is the summer capital of the state of Jammu and Kashmir, and there are good attractions in the city and surrounding areas, there are some very beautiful attractions further beyond in the Himalayan Mountains and Afarwat Mountains. The main attractions are:

- Gulmarg ("The Meadow of Flowers"): Very beautiful mountainous region west of Srinagar with snow activities (e.g. skiing) during winter and hiking during summer. More tips and photos are at my VT Gulmarg page.

- Pahargam: "The Valley of Shepherds" (with hills, valleys, rivers etc)
- Sonamarg: "The Meadow of Gold" (with Himalayan Mountains, valleys, rivers etc)
- Ladakh: This is a vast and remote area within the Himalayan Mountains many kilometres east of Srinagar. The landscape consists of barren snow mountains dotted with villages and farmland of Tibetan people. The biggest town in Ladakh is Leh.
- Zanskar: This is one of the most remote region in the world occupied by the traditional Zanskar people.

Note that Somamarg, Ladakh and Zanskar have very old and harsh winters, and these places can only be visited during the summer months when the weather is warmer and the mountain passes are free of snow.
