Gulmarg

Gulmarg

A twisting 4km-long loop of road rings and wounds through the hills reaching to the undulating ‘Meadow of Flowers’, called Gulmarg. This hill resort's legendary beauty, prime location and proximity to Srinagar eventually make it one of the premier location.  Gulmarg is situated at an altitude of 2730 meters above sea level and has a gently sloping topography. The pine-fringed meadow gets a visual focus by the prim 1890s Anglican Church of St Mary’s sitting on a lonely hillock, accessed off the dead-end road linking historic Gulmarg Golf Club to the 1965 neo-colonial style Hotel Highlands Park.

 

You can also venture up through the backing stands of mature pines towards the bald ridge of Mt Afarwat. With no doubts, Gulmarg is one of the beautiful place that can be visited in Kashmir valley. Formerly, it was called Gaurimag, named after Shiva’s coasts.  During the colonial rule over India, the British discovered the hill resort of Gulmarg in 1927. Gulmarg draws numerous travelers due to its rustic appeal. The snow-clad peaks and the lovely landscapes of Gulmarg have contributed background for several Bollywood movies.Gulmarg is also the Asia's only heli-skiing resort.

It is a convenient base for treks to the Himalayas and also offers multiple winter sports facilities to the tourists.
