First off, please keep in mind that it is extremely cold in Kashmir at that time, well below freezing and land route as well as air route can close down due to bad weather. So if you’re ok with this, then only head to Kashmir.

Tagging @rameshtahlan sir for further advice.

Thanks Yogesh for the suggestion. You are right that weather could turn extremely cold at that time. that's why I am more interested on Road trip instead of Air route. I can change plan quickly as per situation there and head towards other hill station. Will wait for ramesh sir advice also.

On the flip side, if the road closes while you’re in Kashmir (which it does in case of heavy snowfall), you will have to wait for the road to get cleared up. In any case, if you’re planning to drive, make sure to get snow chain.

From Delhi to Katra best option is to book a Train, Buses also ply on this route. I am not sure about direct connectivity between Delhi & Srinagar via road transport. You need to first reach Jammu and from there you can take bus for Srinagar. Experts can provide more details.

+1 to what vijay said. Avoid taking a bus from Srinagar to Delhi, it will take more than a day to reach here. Direct bus from katra is easily available and decent enough option.

Take the train option, since the bus journey would be close to 12 hours if not less. Train journey is more comfortable (sleep, toilets etc.). I had this bad experience of travelling from Jammu to Delhi via bus, and it was pretty bad!!

I will suggest to make your base as Jammu due to train station, depending on your starting location (if Delhi).


I will provide more details, as I find them!!
