Planning Jammu Trip in last week of June / First Week Of July

Dear All,
we are planning a trip to kashmir in the last week of june or in the first week of July, we are planning to visit srinagar,gulmarg,phalgam,sonmarg
what will be the weather conditions at that time, will there be any snow in gulmarg for skiing, last time during summer our visit to MANALI was v dissapointed as we couldnt find any snow, how will it be in kashmir in late June, if not heavy snowfall, will there be atleast a considerate amount of snow,
appreciate a reply from the people who have visited there, or ppl having knowledge about it.

Thanks

Hi Ananth

In the month of June / July you'll find snow at Sonmarg in huge quantity at stage 2 of Gondola, sonmarg is better than gulmarg in the concern of snow

Srinagar to pahalgam to katra is not possible in a day..skip it or skip vaishnodevi or amritsar. You can do amritsar-vaishnodevi later..going all the way to kashmir and spending just 3 days is not giving justice to kashmir.
