Gulmarg Gondola

Gulmarg Gondola in Gulmarg district of Jammu and Kashmir is one of the highest altitude operating cable cars in the world. It is a two-level gondola lift that carries 600 people on a round trip to Kongdoori Mountain in the Apharwat Peak. The round trip takes around an hour. The Gulmarg Ropeway Project is a collaborative venture of the Government of Jammu and Kashmir along with Pomagalski, a French Company. The first level of the Gulmarg Gondola travels at a height of approximately 2600m to Kongdoori Valley. The second level of the Gulmarg Ropeway has 18 towers and 36 cabins to travel to the Kongdoori Mountains at a height of around 3747m. The best time to visit Gulmarg Gondola is from the month of December to Mid of February. During winters, the region experiences good snowfall and turns into a wonderland.

Gulmarg Gondola is the second longest and second highest cable car in the world. We were ready to go on a Gondola Ride.

Only first phase of the gondola ride was open since it’s peak winter time .it was a 8min ride one way which costs 750 per person for to and fro .but it’s totally worth since the view is really awesome but since it was snowing heavily we could not see much of a view . We can also ski from the end point of the gondola station .
Day 4 – Today was the highlight of the entire trip. A ride on the Cable Car in Gulmarg and reaching Phase I of ice ski fields. We took the cable car ride to reach Phase I and was completely taken aback by the white views. The cable car ride offers splendid views of trees and shepherd houses covered in snow.

After a good night sleep, I finally hit the mountains! Fayaz, my new buddy, helped me to get a ticket, and together we embarked the gondola. Trusting this masterpiece of new French technology, I could fully enjoy the ride. Not a single cloud covered the mountains, and I had a stunning view over the Kashmir valley, surrounded by mountains as far as you can see. Halfway up, we disembarked and walked to the ski lift. It was already past 10 am, and to my astonishment, he was still motionless. As we slowly approached the booth, they turned on the engines – for their very first guests of the day!
Warmth of the golden sun, chills of the wind and the soothing sight of snow lay in front of me. The entire mountain was covered up in a white sheet with people skiing, shouting and laughing in joy. Those were the fewer ones who dared to take a step ahead regardless of what others had told them, a lesson I never expected to have learnt in such a poetic manner.
