It is simply awesome. I visited here is February so due to heavy snow could visit till 1st level only. But believe me the view was not less then Switzerland. Snow covered mountains and pine trees. Ticket queue is always long and need minimum 1 hour waiting. I suggest you to go early morning to cut this time. Don't forget... More

This experience would be fantastic in winter when the snow covers the trees and everything else. However, though we went in June 2015, we really enjoyed the experience. The views are fantastic and you feel quite safe during the ride, notwithstanding the fact that you are in a car that is suspended way above the ground. There is a long... More

The ride is ultimate but the experiences before taking ride is quite bad. Beware of the ponny walas (horse man). They will flee you like anything. There is no need to hire them as the distance is quite walk able from the taxi stand.No need to hire any guide and they won't help you much rather guide you to how... More

If you purchase tickets then don't ever think to cancel it and get refund as they will not refund it. I booked it online on 1/7/2016 and at the counter it showed there was no booking. I called customer care and they told that they are going to rectify this problem. it has been more than 1 hour we waited... More

We were 13 friends. All bundled in fours into the Gondola. The cable car. Till the first level it was just an ordinary ride. The ride from the first level to the final level was spectacular. Snow everywhere. We squealed in joy. Perfect holiday for 56 year old dare Devils. Had the time of our life sledging and skidding in... More

If you are lucky you would witness Snow at level 1 and level 2. We were very lucky and the place was awesome. Flat plateau with snow all around. You must must visit. NO need of any guide or something, can do you on your own.

It is must in Gulmarg if weather permits. Phase 2 is more beautiful to view snow desert. Online tickets are available and have your tickets online because lines for tickets are very long in seasons. View from cabin is so amazing that can't be explained.

Thank hemhimanshu
