trip to kashmir, pls advise on travel and stay

We are a small group of 3 adults + 2 children. We are planing to visit Jammu - Katra - Srinagar - Gulmarg - Pahalgam - back to Jammu around Apr end - May 2013, entire tour on our own.

1. How do we make necessary travel arrangements across these locations?

2. Where we do stay at these places, do we need to make hotel reservations in advance or can we get there when we go?

2. Re: trip to kashmir, pls advise on travel and stay

Thanks kashmir111

1. What about the travel ?

2. We would like to stay 1 night in Gulmarg and 1 night in Pahalgam, is ok if we stay less days in Srinagar.

3. Basically we want to stay where there is snow, (and not just see it in the distance) so opting for Gulmarg, is it a correct decision?

if you are going in may you may not get to see as much snow there. you can come back to srinagar no need to stay in gulmarg. instead you can stay in pahalgam for a day if you are interested in river rafting.
