The tall deodar trees were covered with a thick blanket of snowy flakes and the way to... More

Visit Gulmarg last week and no many tourist there. I think it's impacted by the flood disaster in last September. I arrived around 11am, and there was short queue in the gondola platform. Waiting room in first floor of the gondola station is totally empty. I read some tips before to hire local guide to cut the queue, in this... More

The day we visited, it was raining heavily in the morning. We reached the counter inside the building & had to sit & wait for a good 3 hours for phase 1 to open. We couldn't go to phase 2 via the gondola. Instead we hired the horse ride & went upto the top .. it was magical, horse riding... More

Gulmarg is approximately 58 km from Srinagar and take about 2 hours by car. We enjoy the journey as there are very nice view of mountains and green surrounding. When we reach Gulmarg we feel the beauty of the breathtaking view. Mountains peaks covered with snow, and tall pine trees and a larg golf field. It gives a feeling that... More

A must visit place if planning to visit Kashmir. Approx 2 hours ride by car from srinagar. U must also enjoy the famous gondola cable ride but avoid the pony waala's who are thugs. Must take a nights stay at this amazing place.

If you are looking for a holiday in the lap of nature, away from from the city din, then this is not the spot for you. No matter when you decide to go, the place by sheer number of tourist crowd will overwhelm you. Like any other commercialised spot, this too has enough of littering and horse poo. Phase 1... More

Might have been magical in winter but during summer, was nothing short of ooh and aah. Gondola takes you to 2 levels, slightly expensive. Would recommend taking the gondola atleast to the first level and if you cannot resist the temptation, buy the ticket for the next level from there.
