February being the last month of winter for this part of the country so if you wish to indulge into skiing Gulmarg is your place.

HolidayIQ traveller John Don from Srinagar shares, “Gulmarg is a wonderful place to be at as it has scenic beauty and wonderful forests. Nature has bestowed Gulmarg with all the eye catching things. Gulmarg also has the highest gondola of the world. In Gulmarg Gondola is the best thing I have ever seen, taking a ride in cable car while enjoying the beauty is breathtaking. Our stay was nice but I think too much human interference has taken the sheen away from Gulmarg a lit bit. I think it is best place for any kind of people whether adventurous, romantic or just nature loving it is a beauty to watch. So every person should visit this wonderful place once.”
