Thanks for the prompt reply and all the information. It was really helpful.

But we do not want to come back to srinagar daily as in from gulmarg and sonmarg as the distances are much and it will be exerting for my parents to travel this much daily. So can we stay there also?

Hi,

Srinagar-Gulmarg is around 50 kms and can be covered in an hours drive.

Sonmarg is around 85 kms from Srinagar & can be travelled in about 1 1/2 hours.

Generally,these two places are covered in a days trip & you have better options of hotels in Srinagar.

I just returned from the srinagar trip (June 18-23) and have booked the itinerary and taxi as per advice from Ashis Roy.

All the tips he advised were indeed helpful. we aslo did 5N/6D. We did not went to Sonmarg. The trip could be tiring as it took us about 6 hours from Gulmarg to Pahalgam because of some road construction. So plan your timing accordingly.

Hope this is helpful.

Regards
