Hey everyone,

Would be really happy to take you all to this beautiful journey which we had experienced in January to Srinagar, Gulmarg and Sonmarg.

First we reached Srinagar by Flight and had already booked a hotel for us well in advance.

Day 3

Day 3:We hired a cab which took us from Srinagar to Sonamarg.

Driver's name was Bilal and was simply amazing with his work. He provided us with all the local details including famous tourist spots as well as famous traditional cuisines.

Here we both experienced our first ever live snowfall which was indeed breathtaking and unforgettable.

After spending the whole day at Sonmarg and enjoying the Snowfall at Ice Park in Sonmarg, we headed to Gulmarg in the evening and reached Gulmarg around 6:30 pm and checked in to the hotel.

Day 4

The Vintage Hotel in Gulmarg is simply love. It's a perfect place to stay when you know outside temperature is in minus.

Hotel has a superb ambiance with perfect breakfast.

Interestingly we also got to know Salman Khan stayed in the same hotel while shooting for Bajrangi Bhaijaan.

Its better to hire a local guide to explore and know more beautiful places and also you will get help on prices(negoitation) of all the activities.

We stayed in Gulmarg for around 2.5 days.

Places we visited in Gulmarg:

1. Gondola (World's highest operating cable cars)

2. Sking point

3. St Mary's Church

4. Drang

Gulmarg is place where you don't need much spots to visit. You can just keep walking and experience this beautiful place and the nature for clean air and breeze.

You can get a visit many Bollywood movie shooting spots.

Back to Srinagar to catch a flight for Delhi.

Suggestion: Don't carry any kashmiri masala and pickles in your handbag as they might not allow you to take them as there are multiple security checks at Srinagar Airport.

Reached Delhi and waiting for a flight back to Pune.
