Firstly, as soon as you set foot from the vehicle, the head of the guides along with his chelas round up on you asking / pressurizing you with tantalizing info on points of interest. Haggling over prices defntly helps reduce prices (big time if u have a localite with you). We were a big group so it defntly turned out... More

Gulmarg is "The Place" for Skiing and Sledging. As the winter sets in post November, the winter games are held here which include Ice Hockey, Sledging, Skiing, etc. Its very famous amongst foreign tourists for the winter sports that happen here. Ice is generally present in patches almost throughout the year and people enjoy different activities. A good place for... More

The arrangement for gondola is run by commercial channels and its booking procedure is very pathetically maintained. If you want to book your gondola tickets online, do it at least before a week. Else you may see a message "all tickets are sold out". In my case, I could book only Phase-1 ticket online (Gulmarg-to-Kangdori). Phase-2 (Kangdori-to-Apharwat) tickets were all... More

Naeem and Audil - thanks for organising the trip on the gondola and the activities at the top. Great timing - its important to get the timing right especially with young kids. You did that well for us especially with more than 6 kids age 3 to 6. Would sincerely suggest using their services whilst in Gulmarg and with Family.... More

The guides were very helpful to ensure that we enjoy the beauty of this beautiful place. We rewarded them very handsomely although they did not expect anything more than their regular fees.

The guides were very helpful especially to the senior citizens in our group and bent over backwards to ensure that we enjoy the beauty of this beautiful place. We rewarded them very handsomely although they did not expect anything more than their regular fees.

Security especially in Kashmir is very stringent and often you will see soldiers with rifle patrolling the streets and in airport it's worst. A lot checks and paper works for foreigners. It's advisable to engage a local tour company to bring you around. Gulmarg Alpine is beautiful and it's worth all your money and efforts. Our group of 8 ladies... More

Gulmarg is located about 35-40 kms from Srinagar. It is better to travel by car as there are so many scenic places on the way to Gulmarg. It is very cold weather in Gulmarg from October last to April end and it is better to bring cold weather clothes and ankle boot shoes as the snow may pile up to... More
