Important Things to Note in Sonamarg, Kashmir

Best time to visit

April to June. During this time the climate is pleasant for exploring the unmatched beauty of Sonmarg. The weather is neither too hot nor too cold, set at a comfortable range of 15 degrees Celsius to 30 degrees Celsius. Sonamarg also looks exquisite while being shrouded by vibrant blooms of wildflowers.

In the monsoon season from July to September, even though the weather isn't harsh, the frequent rains make activities for travelers, especially for adventure, difficult. Moreover, this period coincides with the time of Amarnath Trek, and therefore these months witness heavy footfall.

As such, those looking for solitude may find it rare to get it during the monsoon. Although Sonamarg remains closed to tourists during the winters - from November to March - because of heavy snowfall and risks of avalanches.
