Gulmarg . Beautiful Destination

Gulmarg is heaven, only bad thing about it. Locals Note: When I say Local I am referring to all the cheats from or around Gulmarg trying to cheat you and make money from you in the name of whatever business they think they are doing First set of cheats are in Tangmarg . Don't pay more than 100 (actually 75) for boots & Jackets each . In winter they will ask you to hire different vehicle due to snow fall on road, but when you will negotiate with a person for price . That person will not be there while you are trying to pay on return journey . So be careful In Gulmarg when you arrive . All the local cheats will say Gondola is closed tomorrow you should visit now. Just ignore those cheats & ask hotel staff to inquire . Locals won't let you travel alone peacefully, they will annoy you to the point that you have to hire one of them as guide . If you are visiting in winter then be aware that you can skate & do other activities in Gulmarg . You don't have to visit gondola & rent skate & other stuff for more than 1000. Same will be available down in Gulmarg for less than 500. My guide cheated me in that department. Don't quite remember his name If you are going from Srinagar Airport . I would personally ask you to hire one of the two taxi drivers to Gulmarg or Tangmarg (in winter). They are brothers namely Sarfaraj & Mehraj. Ask specifically for one of them on Airport Taxi Department . I am not advertising them . But they are amazing. Big brother Sarfaraj agreed to pay 200 Rs from his pocket to Tangmarg taxi driver (for me) just because his brother Mehraj gave me price approximation for taxi from Tangmarg to Gulmarg on Srinagar airport (which was not his job or his promise to make or keep). So not all Locals has to be bad . Its just what kind of people you meet .

Switzerland in india

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 .

Gulmarg

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

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

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

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
