Best Season to Visit
The best months to visit Kashmir Great Lakes are July and August. During these two months, the sky’s the clearest and the temperatures are at their highest, allowing trekkers to enjoy their adventure to the fullest. From October to April, the region is still entirely blanketed in snow, making it difficult to even go through it. Camping is not possible in the area as a result.
At this time of year, the average high and low temperatures are 17 to 20 degrees Celsius during the day and 3 to 5 degrees Celsius at night. Although the months of June and September are manageable for the climb, hikers must be ready for the possibility of a day off and nights below zero.
