Kashmir is undoubtedly one of India’s most beautiful destinations. It has often been referred to as ‘Heaven on Earth’. Be it during summer when the roads have cleared and riders flock Ladakh or winter when the snow covers most of the region and it is ski season in Gulmarg, Kashmir is a fantastic holiday spot all year round.

However, there is something about Kashmir in June that makes it the best place to be in India!


1. The Dal Lake looks like this in June!

2. Roads to Ladakh – the best road trip route of India – open up for tourists.

3. Monasteries like Lamayuru gompa host colorful local festivals which are a delight to witness.

4. The pastures are greener than ever making the landscapes spectacular!

5. It is neither too cold nor too hot which means it is the best time for camping!
