Hi Friends,

Am planning to travel to JAMMU>>KATRA>>SRINAGAR>>JAMMU in the month of OCT 2010. I have few queries for which i hope i will receive some expert thoughts

  1. Travel from KATRA to SRINAGAR..are there any buses or trains available?? what is the best mode to travel from Katra to Srinagar @ evening/night
  2. Good Houseboats in SRINAGAR and price
  3. I want to make SRINAGAR as a base and cover the other places viz Gulmarg, Sonmarg, Pahalgam..will this approach work out or do i need to check-in individual hotels @ every place??
  4. Taxi for sight seeing for all the places i.e. Gulmarg, Sonmarg, Pahalgam.

Welcome to IndiaMike. :)

Try searching for this info in the Jammu & Kashmir forum, there are many threads that can help you. But before you make the plan, be aware about the current political situation in Kashmir valley. It isn't the best time to visit the valley right now, and no one can be sure how it would be in October either. So keep your plan flexible.

Hello we are from hyderabad and we will also be trvelling to srinagar in october 2010. Our dates are 13-10-2010 reach srinagar and leave srinagar on 17-10-2010. We plan to see srinagar, gulmarg sonmarg and pehalgam.....or may be drop sonmarg. Taxi rate is around 1800 to 2000 per day all inclusive in a tavera or scorpio. HB in srinagar will cost from 500 to 4500 per day so it is really a matter of how much you want to spend on HB. And yes do all the sightseeing keeping srinagar as your base it sounds sensible. Still if you do have the time stay overnite at pahalgam.......really good place to see.....to get info on houseboats you may also see www.houseboatowners.org . If you are there during my proposed period of travel.....do let me know....and yes how many of u intend to travel ? enjoy and bye....praveen hyderabad

hi shvair,

Its better to start from Srinagar and end your journey at Katra.

For visiting Gulmarg and Sonemarg it is ok to make Srinagar as base. But you must stay at Pahelgaon. I am sure you will enjoy it.
