Gulmarg Winter Festival Tour

Duration: 3 Nights / 4 Days

Gulmarg's legendary beauty, prime location and proximity to Srinagar naturally make it one of the premier hill resorts in the country. While Gulmarg is an all-weather resort with refreshing summer meadows and pastoral scenes to keep the camera busy, the main reason to come here, at least in winter, is the off-piste, deep-powder, long-run skiing and snowboarding. The Himalayan resort of Gulmarg is one of the newest and increasingly popular ski destinations. Gulmarg's Snow Festival is the perfect time and place for you to experience the exhilarating thrill of ripping down 14,000 feet of powder off the world's highest slopes, as you compete with other skiers from across the globe or witness, from a safe distance, others go ski-crazy. Initiated in 2009 by the Winter Games Federation of India and J&K Tourism Department to firmly establish Gulmarg's image as a resort town and boost tourism. In addition to snowboarding, ice-skiing, snow-cycling competitions, that has people participating from all around the world, this festival is a celebration of culture, music, sports and food. The dates of the festival vary and it is better to confirm them before setting out. Advance bookings for tickets and accommodations are always better.
