HI All,
Need some help in planning to visit the dream destination Kashmir in the month of June 2012. I have personally gone through most of the threads here on Kashmir, but beg to be excused beforehand for asking questions that may have already been previously answered by somebody in some other posts. This is because I need specific advice for my current tour.

We'll be reaching Jammu on 9th June around 10:30 hrs.
We have our return ticket booked from Udhampur on 17th June at 17:55 hrs.

We are a group of 3(family) nature lovers. We intend a comfortable and budget tour. Our approximate budget for the family is Rs 2000-2500 per day inclusive of all expenses(fooding,lodging,trans port). We would like to visit Patnitop, Srinagar, Gulmarg, Sonmarg, Pahalgam..... We do not intend to visit Mata Vaishnodevi this time.

I have personally made a rough plan:
09 June(1 night) - Patnitop
10-13 June(4 nights) - Srinagar, Sonmarg, local tour...
14 June(1 night) - Gulmarg
15-16 June(2 nights) - Pahalgam
We'll appreciate and welcome advice and suggestions from the experts regarding our following queries:
1. What should be our ideal itinerary for the tour? Please feel free to add places if time permits. We want to capture maximum out of it.
2. What are the options for transportation? Approx costs?
3. Need some budget accommodation guidelines.
4. What kind of weather can we expect?
5. Are ATMs available throughout?
6. Any special tips from the experts' end.
Thanks to all fellow IMikers in advance.

Hi,
In june you would get the houseboats in the range of 1200 to 1800 rs with ep plan.
For breakfast & meals rs 350 per head.
Transportation - Tavera for 3 families (6 persons) 2200 rs per day ,it comes to approx 350 per head.
so u r budget of rs 2000 - 2500 ok.

for stay in Patni top i would suggest hotel Pine view, it is on right side of Srinagar highway 3 km after kud & before patnitop.A good place to stay with great views.

With regards,
Sachin.

Thank you Sachin for the suggestion. I would like to surely incorporate that in my plan, but I need to know regarding the transport facilities. Assuming my train reaches Jammu at 10.30 hrs, what will be my options for proceeding towards Kud/Patnitop?
And on the next day shall I get proper transport from Hotel Pine View for moving to Srinagar? I mean are there shared taxis available or only buses?
If we hire a cab from Jammu itself, how much it can cost us considering a night stay at Kud/Patnitop?

Also if possible help me with my other queries too.
Thank you again.

Hi,
This is a plan i would recommend

Day 1 : Jammu to Patni Patni stay
Day 2 : Patni to Pehalgam Pehalgam stay
Day 3 : Pehalgam local Pehalgam stay
Day 4 : Pehalgam - Gulmarg Gulmarg stay
Day 5 : Gulmarg - Srg Srinagar stay
Day 6 : Srg local Srinagar stay
Day 7 : Srg - Sonmarg - Srg Srinagar stay
Day 8 : Srinagar local Srinagar stay
Day 9 : Srg - Udhampur

I would suggest you to hire a cab for the entire trip.
For accomodation : lot of options in Srinagar & Pehalgam, average options in Gulmarg & less options in Sonmarg.

Once again, thank you Sachin for the early reply. Your suggestion for the itinerary is brilliant! Can you throw some light upon the approx car rental charges on a per day basis for small cars like indica, alto, wagonR....etc. Coz we are only 3 people so no need for a big car.

I went to Srinagar in April. I hired Qualis for 5 days. It costed me Rs 9450 for 5 days. I used this card to travel within srinagar, Gulmarg, Pahalgam.
Try calling Sajid - 09419447389. Give him my ref.

I would skip Patnitop if i was going to Kashmir. Patnitop is for people who want to go to Katra plus enjoy some hill station feeling so you go to Patnitop. IF you planning to go to Kashmir, Gulmarg or Pahalgam you would better off spending that night in Srinagar than Patnitop. Patnitop is not that fun place. Its a place which has high altitude and has got some hotels there. No water, no sightseeing. It is a break for people who are fed up of Jammu heat. Thats all. Drive straight to Sriangar and decide your ternary from there.
