HolidayIQ Traveller Rachita Biswas from Kolkata says, “I had never visited any hill station covered with such amount of snow. Truly justified with the saying "Heaven on Earth". Gulmarg is perfect pallet of bliss and solitude. There is a golf course also located here. However, the main attraction here is the Gondola cable car. There are two levels. Make sure to take both the levels. The second level takes you to more than 4000 m altitude. Both the view from that height and the Gondola ride are breathtaking.”

The slopes of Gulmarg make it the only heli ski-ing resort in Asia and the highest ski-ing location in India. Being a popular snow sports hub, appropriate clothes, equipment and instructors are easily available. The most popular activities here include skiing and cable car rides. The Gulmarg Godola here is one of the highest cable car facilities in the world.  HolidayIQ Traveller Guru Singh Paaji shares, "First visit to Kashmir will definitely leave you spellbound with its amazing attractions and a sight you can't resist from sunrise to sunset. The shikaras, taking a walk around the Dal lake and then strolling down the streets to get some real authentic Kashmiri cuisine is certainly a must. Tourists flocking here and there and not to miss the army Jawans too, there for protection. It's surely an untouched paradise."

This mountain place is the best one through the year as the peak will have snow even in the last period of summer . There is one drawback in places like Gulmarg and sonmarg. The local people who address themselves as guides and horse helpers are the culprits because of whom tourists don't think of going to Kashmir again as they overly charge the tourist and purposely them skip places if we negotiate them more . The most important thing one has to note while visiting Gulmarg is there is an option to avail the Gulmarg gandola cable car tickets with online booking at. Com/gondola_tickets. Php . . The price for horse ride to phase 1 is Rs1300/- round trip but atv bike is expensive at 4000/- per person If you don't get a online gondola ticket then you have to start your days horse ride to phase 2 by 8 am so that you reach there by 9:30. The counter opening time is at 10:30 but huge crowd will gather at that time. So better be on time to enjoy the ride .
