Hi

I have decided to visit this valley in April'13

In june 2012 also curfew imposed in some parts of Srinagar for other issues

At that time also TA discussed the issue and vistet ( a TA DE from leh) wrote the following lines

"You´ll probably get more precise info from local papers : dailyexcelsior.com , tribuneindia.com , greaterkashmir.com than here."

For nandhi79 check these website and find out more specific and up to date information on curfew as your date is just 10 days away

I do not think this problem will continue till April or May 2013

I will also monitor these website and see the situation improves before going to visit there

although there is a large military presence in j&k but safety is always an issue.we visited kashmir in january this year and from our experience i would like to point out that even the locals are not very co operating. they bully the tourists and the prices charged are very exorbitant every where. so you have to be extra careful.this is a sincere advice to all the people visiting kashmir particularly, jammu is ok but there is nothing much to see there.

my flight was also on 10th march , i have just cancelled it after waiting and observing situation closely for last 10 days. You cannot simply travel with free mind in this situation without being scarred every now and then. I am not pessimistic but while travelling you need absolute peace of mind.
