What was supposed to be a trip to Rajasthan After much thinking and debating my wife and I decided to book trip to kashmir, PHEW ! Initially we were hesitant to travel to kashmir because of constant not so good news in news channels .
We booked indigo flight because they have direct flight from Bangalore to Srinagar .total journey is around 3.15 hrs .
First 2 nights we decided to spend in Gulmarg .
We had booked Vintage Gulmarg on Booking.com and asked the hotel to arrange for the transfer from Srinagar airport to gulmarg hotel .the total cost is 3500 inr .
Pre paid sim does not work in j&k so we had to borrow mobile outside the airport to contact the driver ,but it was easy since all ppl are very friendly towards the tourists.
We boarded the taxi and it was a 3 hours journey to Gulmarg but one of the most beautiful ride you will ever ride . We had to change 2 cars because it was peak winter and normal cars don’t go the last 15 km because of snow . There are Special 4*4 cars with chain tied to the Tyre . There are lot of people who will try to be friendly with you and help you to plan the trip but they charge 700 inr per day ..
