Weather in Srinagar in September/October.

We plan to visit Srinagar ,Kashmir and the surrounding areas including Pahalgham but remain undecided if it should be mid to end September , or until mid october.

Cutting it fine ,I know but a decade ago we visited Srinagar in Late October but found it "Rather Nippy".,including the lake.

We plan to combine this with visit t the Golden Triangle and Amritsar.

Help narrowing these options appreciated!

Mid October would be good time to visit Kashmir. Less Chance of rain in Oct. You'll get to see saffron farming, apple in orchards.

The itinerary can be Delhi > Srinagar (Gulmarg/Pahalgam/Sonmarg) > Delhi > Agra > Jaipur > Amritsar (by train - 19781 Jaipur- Amritsar Express) > Delhi.

AshisRoy,

thanks for your suggestions and indirectly altering our plan,.

We intended Amritsar, Delhi,Srinagar day trips Gulmarg,Sonmarg and an overnighter to Pahalgam then back to Delhi to Jaipur,Rathambore, Agra and Delhi and back.

Hotels in Srinagar offered are Taj Viv,Lalit & Gurkha.Pahalgaham is Pahalgham and Pine trees...Jaipur s TridentRathambore is Regency & N.Haveli...Jaypee in Agra & Delhi and Metro....

Your suggestion feels soother i.e. into Delhi and move on and out of Amritsar?? Care to comment?

You'll get snow at Affarwat (Gulmarg) in October. You'll get to see saffron farmings and apples in the orchards as well.
