If looking for waterfalls, summer is the season of choice.
If looking for waterfalls, summer is the season of choice when the snow melts and increases the water content of all rivers. In general, March to October is the season for tourists where the true colour of Sonamarg “Meadow of Gold” is in full bloom. All flowers in different hues bloom one after other and this valley keeps changing the contrasting colours.
Sonamarg is inaccessible during winter due to heavy snowfall and avalanches, NH 1D is closed in December every year and the local traffic is permitted only up to Gagangear village, which is the last permanent settlement of this area.
With prior travel arrangements, however, you can still enjoy Sonamarg. Your travel agent would be your best guide.
