Reviews of Gulmarg Gondola • 6
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.
Honestly the recent news of gandola accident was really very very devastating and it has affected me so much.Because when you have visited a place and then something happens, you keep on getting flashbacks of that place.But apart from all the,Gondola ride is one of the best thing which you can get in Gulmarg.
Snow point called Kongdoori Mountain, a shoulder of Afarwat Peak (4,200 m (13,780 ft) .To reach here we have to take the Asia's highest and longest cable car ride, the Gulmarg Gondola----The highlight of Gulmarg.Activities at the point include skiing,sledging,biking.Skiing can be done with the skiing guide.View of LOC (Line Of Control). Coming down from the Gandola trip you can take a pony ride or walk to other nearby places like temple ,park etc.But deal with the horsemen as a package and not as individual trips.ATV's are also there which will cost a fortune for this purpose.Gandola rides needs to be prebooked days before otherwise its all about commission to your tour guide,hotel manager or whoever guides you here.
7. Gulmarg – Lush green meadows (I call them Heidi fields) spread over vast lands will captivate you as you enter Gulmarg. The meadows are fully enclosed by Pine and Deedar trees and overlook snow-capped hills. Ride a horse around the meadows to enjoy the full view. In winters the sight is even more enthralling as the entire area is laden with a carpet of white. Gulmarg is famous for winter sports, especially skiing. Take a Gondola ride from Gulmarg to Kongdoor and Aparwath.
This Gondola service takes you to the very top, the highest point in Gulmarg. The view of the whole town underneath is beautiful. The Gondola takes you cutting right though the snow covered woods. When you reach at the top, you might find film sets being prepared as Gulmarg is a hub for movie shooting. When you are famished out there, aloo parathas will serve as you saviours.
