Is Kashmir safe?


Yes, Kashmir is absolutely safe for travellers. You will find check posts everywhere you go that especially ensure that it is safe for tourists to travel. The locals are also hospitable and helpful towards the tourists.

Can we fly drones in Kashmir?


Unfortunately the answer to this one is a NO. The safety in Kashmir is kept very tight and due to the same concerns drones are banned in Kashmir package. Along with it, if someone tries to sneak in and fly a drone, strict actions are taken against them. On top of that, sneaking in is difficult since the drones are confiscated at the airport itself.



Is there a network in Kashmir?

Yes, mobile networks surely work well in Kashmir. But keep in mind that only postpaid sim networks work there. So if you're going on a long trip, carry a post-paid sim with you. To be on a safer side you can use Jio postpaid because that works perfectly fine in Kashmir.



Till what time Shikara rides will be available? Everyone knows about the infamous Shikara rides in Kashmir. And you can't be missing out on trying them while you're on your Kashmir trip. The Shikara rides are available till 7 in the evening. If you want to book an early morning Shikara, we advise you to book a night before.



Should I go for Gondola rides?

You are going to regret  not doing it once you go back home. So it's better to not live with any regrets and live Kashmir to the fullest.
