However, if you already belong from a snow region, then better visit it during summers to see the natural flora and fauna spreading it's persona. Coming to it's specialities, the Gondola ropeway bridge, especially the second stage. However, the second stage is stopped in adverse weather... More

If you can. do visit Phase 2! Don't opt for Ski as they aren't worth the price. The people here bargain a lot so make sure dont over pay for rides and stuff. Eating Maggi in the cold is awesome experience.

The gondola is a must visit. But once you reach the peak enjoy it without indulging in any horse rides, sled rides or ski rides as you will pay a lot for nothing. Get a guide for the gondola as they help in ticketing etc. but don't fall for any things else

Takes you up from 8500 ft to 14000 ft. Offers great views of Gulmarg from the top. Start early to avoid rush.
