thanks AshisRoy for quick reply.

Can I purchase any local prepaid for 8-10 days?

Should we need to carry woolen in this summer days? Where we can find snow and snow sports?

No, you won't get any pre-paid phone card there. Because it is not allowed in Kashmir.

Light woolens will be needed in Srinagar and Pahalgam after sunset. If you have plan for nightstay in Gulmarg, you should carry heavy woolens.

You'll get snow in Affarwat, second station of Gondola from Gulmarg. There will be skiing, sledging etc.

No pre-paid phone works in Kashmir. Only post-paid phone works there.
