“great view during snow , must go if u go gulmarg hell made by guides”
Reviewed March 30, 2013

AVOID GUIDES --- THERE IS NO NEED , nothing guide can do accept break the line and charge u 600/- black to get tickets faster and make innocent waiting people suffer , the sledgewallas ponywallas are nighmares ,they want every penny from ur pocket

gondola ride is excellent , well managed once u get the ticket ( before ticket is all mismanaged even if u have online pass )

but great view and weather on top , we were lucky that snowfall started at gulamrg and a film shoot was in progress great and a must not miss place , phase 2 was closed on 25 march so we had no option but to settle with phase 1

“At an altitude of 13000 feet you can have a coffee! Heaven at peak!!”
Reviewed March 23, 2013

Never go upto 1st phase only to save money. The heaven is at the peak of phase 2. You will see a only snow mountain peak with clouds far below you. You can find a natural snowfall. Better part is have a coffee there and try a guide helped ski. Have a coffee. See how the heaven looks like!

“Excellent experience of snow”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

The Gondola has 2 parts, one part is roughly 2km and takes 8min ride to reach. The cost was Rs500/-. After first part you get out and you get a blanket of snow where you can do sking and all snow sports. It will be cold so hire snow jacket and snow boots - the complete gear is on rent for Rs200. Then the second leg of Gondola is very long and takes you to top of the mountain that is not visible from bottom as the last 1/4 is in cloud always. It is rougly 6km straight up and takes 20min to reach. People looking from first point can only see dozens of gondola going up and vanishing in snow/cloud/become a invisible dot if weather is clear. On reaching the top you can see the pakistan border and I was told at one time they use to fire missile on this point.
