We travelled to Gulmarg from Srinagar on a day trip.
The weather looked rainy that day and we kept contemplating to go or not until 11 in the morning...Glad that we finally decided to go!
The drive was pleasant and as we approached, the bed of white grew thicker...amazing was the sight of snow everywhere....and as we reached Glumarg it started snowing !
Woww just what we went chasing, snowfall!
You get to the slopes, after you are all clothed up and moved to another vehicle geared to drive in through the ice.
The men with sledges are irritating following you forever ....you can comfortably walk..just need good snow boots which you can easily hire.
Hire skiing equipment and take some quick instructions and you are set for a lovely time skiing , talking about 1st timers like us, looking at some fooling around!
We had a great time and would want to visit again!
Yah the touts are a big let down.
We decided to give the Gondola a miss since it was fairly cloudy..but would def want to go back for a ride.
Make sure you get a good guide to take you up there and get you decent bargains for the ride and ski stuff.
