    Very nice post. Gulmarg is one of the most stunning hill stations in India. It has some spectacular places to see like the Nagin valley, the Apharwat peak, and Pattan.

    One of the best spot of Kashmir. The snow was too good and soft. We visited in June and were lucky to experience the snowfall in phase 2. What an experience. Hire a guide if you are with kids.They will help climbing up the peak and guide you better. This is an amazing place. Don’t miss.Carry suitable warm cloths because the weather is quite unpredictable.

    Gulmarg is full of fun and memories. Gondola riding is very thrilling, exciting & charming which will lead you to Apharwat peak. When I was up above, the beauty of the lower view of the surrounding from the gondola is beyond of my description. We were lucky to witness the snow fall at the top of the peak. It also provides a brilliant view to sunshine peak and nanga parbhat peaks. Gulmarg has a great potential as a Ski resort and it is proving to be a great one. The Himalayan slopes are amongst the best slopes for skiing. It is a great skiing destination. Gulmarg is heaven on earth.
