What Else Does Gulmarg Have To Offer As A Tourist?
Gulmarg is home to the highest golf course in the world and also has one of the highest Gondola Cable Car Lift in the world too. Apart from skiing, Gulmarg offers a host of other snow sports during winters such as tobogganing, snow boarding and even heli-skiing. Hell ya! ;p
Gulmarg is popular both during summer and winter seasons. So if you cannot make it till March-April, do not worry, the valley will still welcome you in the summer with lush green meadows, flower beds and sublime lakes.
Kashmir, one of the most beautiful destinations in the world, was facing an Internet shutdown for the longest time, following the abrogation of Article 370, which had crippled the valley’s economy as local businesses and tourism were hit. Internet services were restored in the valley after a period of six months.
So plan that trip soon! This place, which is literally heaven on earth, awaits you and needs you more than ever.
