While summers are usually thought to be the best time to visit Kashmir, it is not always the case. But it depends how much winter you like or not, travel during snow is beautiful for some people. There are a little more details about year around srinigar weather here at http://www.travelomy.com/srinagar-when-to-go , you can take a look.

No idea about hotel, restaurants, sorry, thought the site above should be able to give you places to see etc too.

Kashmir is a four season travel destination. Choose what you want Spring, Summer, Autumn , Winter all have their own beautiful charm.

Summer is considered best because it is holiday time in schools & people can go to travel with their families. But this is not true what if you like to see the flowers blooming in the paradise, so you need to come in Spring, If you wantto see the beautiful green kashmir, so summers. If you want to see the golden shades of Kashmir, Autumn is for you. Well if you are a snow freak , then winter is right time for you.

But as i can feel from your words , You can enjoy Kashmir tour in Summer only. Have a nice holidays

Either you visit Kashmir between March and June or September and November. The itinerary can be Srinagar 3 nts, Gulmarg 2 nts & Pahalgam 2 nts.

You may stay in Paradise Hotel, Sunshine or Nishat View, ranges Rs.1200-1500.

Best veg restaurant in Srinagar is Krishna Dhaba. It is near Durganag off Dal Gate. On Srinagar - Pahalgam highway.

Hi,

I am visiting srinagar, pahalgam and gulmarg in the first week of september. my trip has been booked through ezeego and we are on a package. Just wanted to know whether it is safe for women to travel to these places. We would be a group of two to three women. Any tips/advice would be extremely helpful.

Thanks in advance.

Nothing to worry as such. Kashmir is safe for all. Do not go for exploration after late evening, if necessary, hire an auto rickshaw for both way. Pre-paid phone card will not work in Kashmir, take woollens. keep photo ID card with you.

If you have plan for overnight stay at Gulmarg, then heavy woolens will be needed, otherwise, light woolens will suffice.
