Kashmir first week of June onwards, a few concerns

Jump to last reply

I hope you all are safe with all the floodings and all!

My lovely friends, I am so excited at the prospect of visiting India for the third time. I have always adored Kashmir so finally i get the chance to fly there this coming June. 1st June till TBC

I am thinking of spending at least 2.5 weeks in Kashmir. I am a Muslim visual artist. Was in Iran and Turkey few months back. I will fly from Singapore to Delhi, visit Taj Mahal and travel to Srinagar the next day.

1) If I want to do Leh, I supposed only option is by the Srinagar-Leh road. Or is it advisable to do an open jaw ticket flying out from Leh back to Delhi. I'm trying to save cost. I'm so confused by the advice. Is it better to do Leh first then Srinagar or vice versa to reduce altitude sickness?

2) Is 2 weeks enough to cover main cities of Kashmir including Leh, Ladakh? Is Manali worth the go or pass?

3) If I want to experience Ramadan at Kashmir, would it be safe or what is it like there? Any safety concerns? If it is perfectly fine, I can even extend my tip to be 3 weeks.

4) The Leh route gives me much crack of the brain so far, trying to find the most economical way to travel by road from Srinagar i suppose.

5) Someone told me the aftereffects of floods will be until June. What does she mean? Like is much of the landscapes affected?

I only have these queries for now. I am so happy. Thank you in advance.
