After a refreshing sleep I was raring to go to Gulmarg which I have often seen in pictures and movies. My friends friend was supposed to pick us up by 8 am. But he overslept. Hahah and Aamir, my Bro and friend called him and was going on giving him a piece of his mind over phone... Poor boy ????.
In the meantime we got ready for breakfast a a simple one. First time I had noon chai, a salted pinkish hued tea with fresh Tsot or Girda bread, which have fingertip indentations. You must try the other varieties of Kashmiri breads which are prepared early morning in traditional style in the kandurs (bakeries). Infact I suggest you go for a food tour and visit a kandur to see and taste the bread varieties. After my friend put a liberal spread of butter on girda, I understood what my weight will be at the end of my Kashmir trip.. ????
Finally my friend's friend came to pick us up at 11 am ????. In the meantime we already had 2 more rounds of noon chai and went for a walk by the Dal to kill some time. We got in the car and off we went through the streets of Srinagar but before that we bought some snacks to munch on for the hour and a half journey to Gulmarg. We zoomed on the highway at quite a high speed..to make up the lost time, thanks to Aamir who had no patience! For slower commuters. I was praying ???? that he doesn't hit anyone...
We reached closer to Gulmarg and suddenly I could see high up the vast expanse of meadows and mountains from a distance. We reached Tangmarg on the route to Gulmarg. We stopped here for a chai and second round of breakfast :) Once over we started off to beautiful Gulmarg.
Finally we reached and it was a refreshing sight, with rolling lush meadows, pine forests and misty mountains in the background. In fact Gulmarg has also the world highest golf course.
