No need to book tickets from Guides- they are cheats, book the Gondola ride & travel by yourself. The first stage to the second stage of Gondola ride has a lot of waiting, the return is smooth. Try going earlier as crowd keeps on gathering at the hill top & fewer come down early.

On the way to Gondola, one needs to pick up boots and coat if one doesnt have already. Your driver/guide can guide you for it. Paid 600 for guide. Rs200 for boots and leather coat. 1400 per person for Gondola ride. It is divided into 2 phase, Rs600 and Rs 800. If you want to do skiing or sledging, it... More

Walking down the lane towards the ticketing counter you'll see many things, horses and horse s**t, vendors lending snow boots and jackets, ATVs (yes.!) and guides and more guides. Guides would approach you and tell you how difficult it is once you reach up there and how many things you would have to take care of on your own if... More

However the state of the mounting points was appalling.. The base station was under construction, we walked with kids through exposed beams and half finished rooms..at both... More

It's the best thing to do, even in the worst of weather. During my second visit this year, the entire valley was covered in fog and visibility was down to jut 10 feet, was still a helluva experience. Not just for me, but my 2.5 year-old daughter. Too bad we couldn't go to Level 2.

Gulmarg Gondola takes you to a height of 14000 feet. During summer, it is a chance to feel ice. It consists of two levels. Level one and Level two. You get very few food items at the top. Be careful in the ice as it is very slippery irrespective of what foot wear you use.

It has a spectacular view, should do both the stages, it will cost 1400/- per person but it is worth doing it.
