Khyber Himalayan Resort & Spa For A Luxurious Experience In Gulmarg
Starting off her day with a delectable breakfast on the balcony, with a view one could never get enough off, a day filled with skiing lessons and other fun activities awaited her. Her view was straight out of a postcard and the tranquillity of Kashmir couldn’t have been more evident.
Also recognised as one of Asia’s top 5 spots for skiing, it had 4.5 Lakh worth of experiences in store including wellness spas, presidential suites, dining, and exclusive snow-filled activities. After being welcomed with a hot cup of Kahwa at the airport, the journey was off to a great start. With all of Gulmarg, covered in snow, every inch of the landscape looked as beautiful as you can imagine.
Next, it was the turn of this international-class luxury hotel to take the trip to the next level. Located at an 8,000 ft elevation of the Pirpanjal range of the Himalayas, the most exquisite quality of Khyber Himalayan Resort and Spa is the spellbinding view at every corner.
