Gulmerg- 60km away from Srinagar. It's basically a two hour Journey. I started my journey early in the morning hired a cab for pick-up and drop from Dal Lake to Gulmerg for around 800 rupees. One has to do some bargaining to convince them for 800 rupees. Than j begin my journey and believe me the route is so beautiful that one hardly would like to miss the scenery. J reached Gulmerg in around 2 hours. So basically Gulmerg has different types of views for different whether. If you traveling in winter's than be prepared for winter sports activities. Ice skating is one of the famous sport in Gulmerg and best in India. Huge number of foreigners travel to Gulmerg to do ice skating. To see the best whether and greenery one must travel in July or August.
I traveled Gulmerg in Mid July and it was such beautiful whether at that time which I can't describe in words. Due to the rainy whether all the flowers and trees were blooming.
So one can book a horse to roam around the mountains to see the pleasant beauty around. Again you need to do some bargaining with them. So I hired a horse for around 500/- rupees for a two hour ride through the Gulmerg region. After covering the entire region I decided to stay here for overnight. It was really costly to stay there but with lots of efforts I found a good and decent hotel for 800/- rupees for overnight stay and it was a good decision to make as I had the opportunity to see the sunset and sunrise in such a lovely region. Early morning after having the breakfast I went back to Srinagar.
Gulmerg is really the heaven in the world.
Har Har Mahadev...
