We are planning to visit Gulmarg on 17th April. We are planning to buy tickets online for both phases. Can anyone guide if we need to keep some time to roam around at phase-1 before proceeding to phase-2. The tickets are available in blocks of 1 hour (with 3 hour validity for return). If there is something to see at phase-1, then I can keep a gap of 1 hour between the tickets for each phase i.e. 11am-12pm slot for phase-1 tickets and 12pm-1pm slot for phase-2 tickets. Please suggest.
Also, how much time do we need at the top of phase-2? Is going to the aparwath lake possible from phase-2 with 2 adults & 2 children (9 years & 3 years old).
