Gulmarg is about one and a half hours from The Lalit Grand Palace Hotel. Gulmarg was covered with snow when we went in March 2012. Tips for travellers are that. 1. If you are going by taxi and reach an area called Tangmarg, your driver may say to you that his car will not go up to Gulmarg and you... More

Peak snow season....and it looks like a little piece of heaven :-). The gondola ride is really good... though extreme weather may get it shut down on bad days. Skiing options are good - for first timers as well as professionals. We saw loads of foreigners skiing down the slopes of the hills. In winter, this place is all about... More

Gulmarg is must visit. Dont forget to go for cable car ride ie gondola ride. You will have fun there. Dont go for sledge riding it is waste. Spend your time skiing. Dont take the broker, he is waste. You can your self spend time there.

enjoyed heavy snow and snowfall, dont hire a sledge cart, the distance between the stop and Gondola is hardly 500 mts. enjoy walk in the snow, need gum shoes only and heavy woollens with cap. skiing is really enjoyable. take a local taxi from Tangmarg to Gulmarg in winters.

Switzerland of Asia. Heavy snow during my trip. Only setback is the touting of the tour guide (at Gulmarg) who force us into their sleigh service.

This is the Switzerland on India. Amazing views from any hotel you stay. Greens and white flowers of the grass do not stink they have a natural perfume. The land is an amazing art with the highest Golf Course.

We went to Gulmarg in September. We could not see snow. But even without snow, Gulmarg is excellant. We got into the gondola and went to the first stage. The climate was awsome. We wanted to go to second view point, but the Gondola to the second stage was not functioning on that day. The view of the Kashmir valley... More
