The Indian states of Jammu & Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh and hills of Uttarachal, Bengal and Sikkim fall in the Himalayan and Trans-Himalayan regions. In this region, March to mid-July is pleasant; end July to end September is pouring rains (except for in Trans Himalayan regions of Ladakh, Lahaul-Spiti and Kinnaur which are beyond the reach of the monsoon clouds) and hence is rather uncomfortable to travel. October to February is rather too cold as it snows time and again; in the higher reaches of the Himalayas and Trans Himalayan regions temperature falls way below freezing points.

Required Clothing  
Lightweights to medium-weights from March to October. Warmer wears for the winter. Weather can change rapidly in mountains and it is therefore important to be suitably equipped.
Food culture

Kashmiri cuisine is essentially meat-based. Lamb, goat's meat and chicken form the basis of many a famous dish.
The abundance of dry fruit like walnuts, dried dates, and apricots also inspire the Kashmiri connoisseur to use them lavishly in puddings, curries and snacks. Cottage cheese or chaman as it is called, is also a popular accompaniment to many meats and vegetables. Fresh water fish like trout found in the numerous fresh water streams flowing down from the Himalayas is also a delicacy. Some of the few famous dishes are:Ghost Ki Kashmiri Biryani,Dum Aloo Kashmiri.
