Tips - Purchase online tickets (www.gulmarggondola.com/gondola_tickets.php) for both phases ( especially during summer seasons) as snow might not be available in phase one Online tickets are available in a separate shack at the back of the phase1 boarding place. Prefer taking a print out of the booking or show booking details on mobile for getting ticket - Go straight to... More

Though the Reception area of the Gondola is under repair and as a result there is little chaos, the journey is enjoyable. View at the first level is unforgettable. In April 14 there had been massive snow and the surroundings were really great.

From the point of parking the car to the point of Gondola start, its about 1- 2 Kms distance.Its an easy,scenic walk. Flowers and greenery surround the road. Dont let the horse owners fool you saying that its a very long distance etc. Do hire the snowboots and coat for protection from the rains/snow/mud. At the ticket and boarding pass... More

Typical chaos with the ticket sales: arriving at about 10am still required a 30 min wait even though there were only about 15 people in the queue. After getting the ticket the rest went fairly smoothly with limited delays. Certainly not cheap by Indian standards: 1400 INR to get all the way to the top. Really no point in only... More

We went to Kashmir in July 2013 and this was one of the highlights of our trip. As we also went to Amarnath, we could see snow there, otherwise this is the place to play in the snow. Even in hot month of July. There are two phases and we could see snow at second phase. Its a must go.... More

The Gondola was way over hyped! The endless ques are a put off and the snow at the top (went upto the second level) was not so clean and enticing. As soon as we reached the second level, we were swarmed by vendors for taking sledges and skis etc. They charge a bomb to take you up to the various... More

It's a little old but still works perfectly fine. Fantastic views. The ticketing is a little shambolic, and people need to be warned to stop pushing to get on as that could prove dangerous. Overall, fantastic and highly recommended.

Online booking available. Beware, gondola service is not available on few Mondays of every month. So plan accordingly. Also, no special clothing/shoes required for stage 1 gondola.
