Summer: Between the months of April and June, the Kashmir Valley welcomes its highest number of visitors as the weather is most suitable for sightseeing and other outdoor activities.

Monsoon: From July to September, the rains come to Kashmir, bringing with them a sense of rejuvenation, lushness and scenic beauty.

Of course, the snow activities are most popular at this time of the year, but there’s plenty of other indoor and outdoor experiences for you to enjoy in a winter Kashmir honeymoon package.
