A popular skiing destination and a hill station in Jammu and Kashmir, Gulmarg features one of the highest gondolas in the world, reaching 3,979 m (13,054 ft) and offering fantastic scenery.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Outer Circle Walk and Alpather Lake. There's still lots to do: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Apharwat Peak, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Imambara Goom, contemplate the waterfront views at Ningle Nallah, and get outside with Gulmarg Backcountry.

To plan Gulmarg vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

New Delhi to Gulmarg is an approximately 4-hour combination of flight and taxi. You can also drive; or do a combination of train, bus, and taxi. Traveling from New Delhi in September, expect Gulmarg to be little chillier, temps between 30°C and 17°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 2nd (Wed) to allow enough time to drive to Pahalgam.
