A Trip to Kashmir in June: The Perfect Itinerary Decoded

7 mins. read

Also known as the ‘Paradise on Earth’, Kashmir is one of the most sought-after tourist destinations in the country. This northern state of India is majorly divided into three different regions: Jammu, Kashmir, and Ladakh. A major part of the region is covered by the mighty ranges of the Great Himalayas and the Pir Panjal range. Surrounded by beautiful, towering mountain peaks and several gleaming lakes, Kashmir is known for offering breathtakingly beautiful natural vistas throughout the year. Especially after snowfall, it turns into a white wonderland, which is also the reason why it is fondly called India’s Switzerland.

Being blessed with an abundance of natural beauty, Kashmir offers a different charm in every season. Although the best time to visit Kashmir for snowfall is from January to March, the winters can get extremely harsh here. This is the reason why this place witnesses the highest visitor influx in the summer season (especially in the months of May and June). The chances of witnessing snowfall in Kashmir in June are very low, but you will definitely get a chance to see snow-clad peaks as the snow doesn’t melt away completely in certain areas.

Attractive beyond anyone’s imagination, Sonmarg is a charming place that is also known for being a trekker's paradise. This beautiful town is home to lush green meadows and beautiful valleys blooming with a variety of flowers.
