Gulmarg

Gulmarg

 

The best ski resort in the Himalayas, Gulmarg's legendary beauty, prime location and proximity to Srinagar naturally make it one of the premier hill spots in the country. Originally called 'Gaurimarg' by shepherds, its present name was given in the 16th century by Sultan Yusuf Shah, who was inspired by the sight of its grassy slopes emblazoned with wild flowers. The towering peaks above the meadow are covered with dense forests of tall conifers and gigantic fir and pine trees, all vying with each other to touch the azure skies. A clear day offers some breathtaking views from Gulmarg: fields of rice; clusters of walnut, pear and mulberry; meadows, ridges and forests that lead to the snow slopes.

The journey to Gulmarg is equally exciting. The wide roads give beauty to flat expanses of rice fields, interspersed with picturesque villages. Gulmarg's international lush green golf course is the highest in the world. Equipment is available on hire for the visitor allured by the golf greens here. Gulmarg is also an important trekking base.
