Excellent tour planned by Kashmir Port tour agency of Kashmir. We did our tour in March'22 and were able to see lot of snow in all places - Pahalgam, Gulmarg, Sonmarg. Special mention of our driver cum guide Mr. Zakir Wahid who made our drive and sightseeing enjoyable. Would highly recommend Zakir Wahid as tour driver / guide if you plan to visit Kashmir through Kashmir port travel agency. Regarding hotels provided, I would suggest booking the tour well in advance to get good hotels of your choice to avoid disappointment, since being a tourist place good hotels gets booked early and fast. At Pahalgam you need to take horse ride to visit top of Mountain which they call mini Switzerland. This horse ride is dangerous but thrilling, so take the ride if you want to experience the thrill otherwise you can skip it as well and move ahead to ABC ( Aru Valley, Betaab Valley, Chandanwari ) which is very beautiful and is accessible by car. The charges for horse ride depends on your bargaining skills. Horse owner will ask orbitant rates per person, like Rs 5000 + to reach mini switzerland which is the top, but we bargained / settled for Rs.3000 per person. Since we visited in March we were able to see white ( Snow covered ) Kashmir which was very enchanting. At all the tourist spots - Pahalgam, Gulmarg, Sonmarg you will need to bargain a lot to bring down the cost. Activities done at these spots are sledging, snow bike ride, skiing. Be prepared for waiting time 2-3 hrs in Q
to hop in Cable car / Gondola ride. In short do visit beautiful Kashmir and get enchanted by its beauty.
