Situated at an altitude of 2730 m above sea level, Gulmarg is surrounded by snow covered mountains, lush green meadows, deep ravines, evergreen forested hills and valleys.
Known for its scenic beauty, Gulmarg has also been a popular destination for shooting of various Bollywood films. Among one of the top honeymoon locations, Gulmarg boasts of being a beautiful town without the crowd. Gulmarg has also been developed as an adventure hub as Indian Institute of Skiing and Mountaineering is located here. A lot of courses on trekking, mountaineering, skiing, etc. Are offered by IISM at great prices here. However, if you are planning to do a course, it is advisable to book your course well in advance. There are a lot of other private tour operators in Gulmarg as well which provide similar courses and facilities for skiing, snowboarding and trekking. The cable car here is also one of the prime attractions here and is the 2nd highest cable car in the world.

"Best place for winter sports"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Aug 19, 2017
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.

"Greenery and scenic snow clad mountains"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted May 24, 2017
Gulmarg is a nice destination full of greenery and scenic snow clad mountains. Though Cable car and pony ride is expensive I would still advise at-least 1 night stay for experiencing the peace and tranquility of this place when one travels to kashmir valley.
Many tourist feel that Sonmarg and Pahalgam is better than Gulmarg thus drop out Gulmarg, in a way it is fine to do that if you have less days in hand.

"True kashmir"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted Mar 4, 2017
Gulmarg is a hill station in Kashmir which is known for its snowfall and the cable car system which is one of the highest in the world. It can be reached via shared taxis from Srinagar and have few good and expensive hotels. The Gondola (cable car) ride costs about 750 rs and will take you to the nearby mountain top where they have skiing and other winter sports. The meadows near the town are very beautiful and there is a temple of lord shiva near it
