Gulmarg in Kashmir - A Resort Fit for Kings

Gulmarg in Kashmir did full justice to its translation - the meadow of flowers. I had woken up early to the familiar comfort of my hotel. A sound sleep had ensured that I was ready to resume my trip with the same fervor and excitement. I ordered for a quick breakfast, which was served hot and steaming in my room. It was quite a pity that I did not have a chance to eat at the restaurants of the hotel and enjoy its ambience but I made sure that I ate all the delicacies in the comfort of my room. Part of it was also because I could travel alone and enjoy but while eating in restaurants, I looked for company of either friends or family. My only friend here consisted of Mr. Kabir who I certainly would not have invited for food.

Nevertheless, the journey began and it took about six hours to reach Gulmarg but it was well worth every bit. The moment I laid eyes on the place, I fell in love with it. Everything about it, the spirit, the weather, the skiing and the Gulmarg Gondola, just everything seemed fun. Hailed as Asia’s seventh best ski spot by CNN International, the place was full with tourists and locals all looking to have a good time. I quickly made way for the Gondola because it threatened to be shut by five pm and was a little weather permitting as well. The first stage took me to the Kongdoori station from Gulmarg resort and the second stage from Kongdoori station to the Afarwat peak. In a total of about twenty minutes I finished both the rides and was quite impressed with such a standard of cable ride in India.

Next, I tried skiing; yes I did try and failed miserably. Well, I would then not make another mistake of expanding further on the embarrassing subject. Apart from the apparent natural beauty in Gulmarg in Kashmir, I also particularly noticed the army’s absence there which made it one of the most popular tourist destinations in Kashmir. With reluctance I bade farewell to Gulmarg and Shiv Khori Cave and Yatra, Jammu was the next day’s plan.
