Awesome Gulmarg visit!

Have you ever seen heaven? Yes.. I have seen a glimpse, in my journey to Gulmarg. Before reaching the the cliff, its all green and water. But after reaching to 13, 000 ft. Approx, it is pure white. Yes, it was the first time I have experienced pure white snow.

The ride begins from Srinagar by road. We booked our Gandola tickets online. But make sure that the weather is appropriate before bookings as the tickets are for Rs. 1400 for both the phases. After the ride of around 90 kms, I switch to a horse ride for about 2 km. Then came the best part, Gandola ride. We wanted to go directly to the 2nd phase so we didn't roam at the 1st phase. After reaching to the peak, it was so cold. We didn't purchase that rented road side jackets but took only boots. But wearing that rubbery boots on snow was a bad idea. My legs were freezed. Anyways it was nothing to moments I was enjoying there with my family. It was mesmerizing. We were throwing snowballs to each other and then we decided to go LOC by skiing, not alone. There were people who were offering rides through skiing to LOC. But make sure, you do not end up by paying out your pockets. After spending around 2 hours there, we returned to the place where our vehicle was parked. All I can say is, it's the best place, I have ever been to. '

Best place for winter sports

1. Why to visit?
It is by far the best place in India for winter sports. It has enchanting view of meadows covered in beautiful flower beds during summers.
2. Must Visit Places.
With amazing range of hotels to stay around. Khyber hotel a 5 star property provides you with delicious range of cuisines and a warm comfortable stay too. The Rani Temple in the middle and Hari Palace and Baba Reshi shrine while coming back from Gulmarg is worth going.
3. Local food and shopping.
Local food at Khyber Hotel is good and Nedous Hotel is also nice. For shopping nothing much is of the same sort is available at Srinagar also)
4. Activities.
The cable car ride is a wonderful experience lifting you from base to a height of 13000 ft within one hours time( including break at first phase).
The snow scooter and skiing during winters and ATV during summers is a must do thing. Can go for pony ride also.
5. Advice.
(adoring Winters.
Carry 2-3 warm Jackets with one being waterproof for prevention from snow and rain. The locally available jackets are unhygienic and used repeatedly by everyone. Carry spare shoes and socks as well. Carry own medicine for common cold, mountain sickness etc. Do carry a camera. Bargain with the snow sledge and snow scooter owners.
(be) During Summers
Do carry own camera. Bargain as much as you can with the local pony riders and All Terrain Vehicle (ATV) owners.
