I am planning a trip to Kashmir this summer, most likely end of june (when I'm off work). I'll be travelling in a group of 6 (2 adults and 4 kids, aged 2-7). We're really excited about going as my family is originally from Kashmir and it would great to finally see where we come from. I've heard lots about it but never been to Kashmir, or even India for that matter.
I'm trying to work out the best itinerary so I can book my flights from now. I was thinking about staying in Kashmir for about 7/8 days. I'll be flying in to Delhi so I'll have to book a flight to Srinagar too. Advice on booking this flight would also be handy.
Any advice on what to see, where to go, where to stay would be great. Is it worth booking an all inclusive package? I don't want to do too much road travelling as I have small children but if there are places that are a must-see, we can always make an acception.
I'd appreciate any guidance on fixing an itinerary and on a reputable tour guide.
Also, since I've never been to India before, are there any things I need to be aware of in terms of safety, scams, etc.?
Thanks in advance.
