Very bad experience with gondola ride. We reached there around 9 AM and reached top at around 2:00 PM. Very bad management. Hugh rush was due to peak season. So, I recommend to avoid this place during peak season/summer. Giving three stars only because of views of the mountains from the top of pick.

We went there during the peak snow period and hence Phase II was shut due to high avalanche danger. We were only able to use the first Phase but it was the most amazing experience. There was a thick layer of white as far as eyes could see and a mesmerizing experience. There was very low tourist footfall at that... More

I visited this place in the month of April last year when the mountain was completely covered with snow. Sometimes the ride seems to be scary specially when you see from above. The Ropeway seems to be old and not well maintained. The locals offering ski and snow scooter services on the peak are really harassing. Guides are champions in... More

There are two phases in the Gondola Ride. People with breathing problems are requested to take the Ride of just Phase 1 only. The phase 2 ride will take you to a height of 13500 Ft above sea level and the snow filled mountain view there is Incredible. You can take a break at Phase 1 while going up or... More

Beautiful scenic views from gondola, and both the phases. It is worth to take a pony ride to kilanmarg once you reach phase I. The bad part is the people around, especially guides and vendors. They will disturb you like anything to sell their service or product. I hired a guide after half a day of him pestering me, only... More
