Kashmir is a haven for snow lovers. The place started to experience its first snow at the beginning of November. In a bid to promote Kashmir during the winters, too, after 70 long years, the government has decided to keep a few places open. Starting from places like Sonmarg, Gurez, and Karnah, the famous Marchoi Trek to Dachigam National Park will remain open till winters kick in officially. However, if you’re bent on visiting Kashmir during the winter season, you should dial a few tour operators, find out the local news and keep yourself updated on all potential places you could visit.
Things To Do In Kashmir. First Timers, Take Note!
There are tons of things one can do when in Kashmir during winter. One prominent attraction you must experience is staying in a houseboat in Srinagar. In Dal Lake, the houseboat is nothing but magical. If you’re on a couple’s visit, the houseboat experience is going to be rewarding & worth all the travel during winter. After a visit to the Shalimar Gardens, head to Gulmarg, where you can trek to Thajiwas Glacier, see the Vishansar Lake, and more. Sonmarg too, in Kashmir, will keep you hooked if you love snow-clad landscapes. Besides all the sightseeing and leisure activities, Kashmir is also a place for adventure and snow sports. So, skiing is one of them you can experience. Ensure you find a place where you can have the best of time in the snow & at least make memories of a lifetime.
