The Mughals called Kashmir “paradise on earth” when they came to the valley in summer. Hundreds of years later, Kashmir still holds that enchanting beauty in its every aspect. The region’s weather is one of the principal factors that make Kashmir, especially Srinagar, an ideal tourist destination. Cool throughout the year, Srinagar has pleasant summers, chilly winters, and refreshing monsoons.

Srinagar in summers, carpeted with vibrantly-colored flowers and containing a sweet aroma of ripened fruits in its aura, is a sight to behold. The most-loved tourist places in Kashmir are experienced at their best during May to October. In order to escape the heat of the plains, travelers from all over the nation come to Kashmir during summer and spend a few days amidst the stunning beauty of the region. However, summers in Kashmir are different from your typical summers in the plains. Therefore, before you start packing for your holiday, you must know what type of clothes to carry that would suit the climate of Kashmir. Here is a list of some important things you should pack on your family trip to Kashmir.

Cotton clothes

The day temperature during April, May, and June in Srinagar remains around 25 to 35 degrees and cotton clothes would be the best for daytime. This type of apparel is especially recommended if you plan to do some of the sightseeing on foot. Pack a few full-sleeved shirts and tops as well; for when it rains, the temperature may go down a bit and make you feel chilly.


Since Srinagar enjoys a humid subtropical climate, nights here are cooler than one would expect even during summers. It is advisable that you carry a few light woolens and warm clothes such as thermals and warm jackets on your trip to Kashmir.

Umbrella and raincoats

In the months of April, May, and June, you may be caught in light showers of rain in Kashmir. To ensure that your holiday goes as planned even during rains, do pack umbrellas and raincoats.

Trekking boots

For many places to visit in Kashmir, such as Sonmarg and Gulmarg, trekking boots will help you navigate through higher snow levels.

Moisturizer and sunscreen

To protect yourself and the kids from dry skin and sunburns, remember to carry tubes of moisturizers and sunscreens on your trip to Kashmir.

Small traveling bag

A small traveling bag will help you keep mobile phones, power bank, camera, medicines, and cash easily in one place during sightseeing.
