Gulmarg is credited with highest green golf course, as well. Gulmarg Gondola Ride serves a unique attraction to tourists of all age groups, and is considered one of the highest gondola rides in world. Fortunately, gondola ride facility is made available across the year and occasionally shuts down in unfavorable weather conditions. By now, if you are wondering what could the altitude of this hill resort be- it is situated at 2690 M (8830 ft.) ! This nature wonder is accessible by road through an exciting drive of mere 60 km from Srinagar Airport. Surrounded by the coniferous ever green forests makes it an ideal summer resort.

Not to disappoint the explorers, one can enjoy hikes and treks to visit some beautiful springs and Alpather Lake (frozen until June). Plenty of horses and ponies available for assistance.

Considering the traffic of visitors, both domestic and inbound, some new constructions have been allowed. Khyber Resorts & Spa and Vintage Hotel are the top two luxury accommodation, developed for the comforts of tourists.
