    it is potentially (and unpredicatbly) dangerous. Your government advises against overland travel to Srinagar and warns of the possibility of sudden conflict in a long-running territorial and ethno-religious dispute. Travellers have been targeted in the past, some have been kidnaped. My government advises against travel to Jammu and Kashmir and says:
    We advise you not to travel to the state of Jammu and Kashmir, other than to the Ladakh region via Manali, or by air to the city of Leh, due to frequent armed clashes and terrorist activities. Terrorists are active in Jammu and Kashmir, particularly during the summer months. In the past, tourist buses and groups have been targeted. The annual Hindu pilgrimage to the Amarnath Shrine, conducted from June to August, has been the target of terrorist attack in the past.

    Not saying it WILL happen but it might. You could be there when it's relatively quiet and peaceful... or not. Difficult to predict. Curfews are imposed suddenly, restricting movement and you will come across roadblocks and checkpoints. It's potentially very dangerous, if you decide to go anyway you'll need to be careful.

    Enjoyed a lot with family; I wish I could stay 2-3 days more. Gul Marg, Dal Lake, Mugal Garden, Sonamarg are some of the must visit places. People of Srinagar are very humble helpful and polite. Visit Tulip Garden if you are traveling in April. Shawls saffrons and dry foods are available at a much cheaper rates than what you get in rest of the country. over 3 years ago
