Hike to the peak of Apharwat Mountain and enjoy the dramatic views of the surrounding countryside. Afterwards, embark on a moderate uphill climb to Alpather Lake, an alpine lake that remains frozen well into each June.
Enjoy a ride on the Gulmarg Gondola, the second highest in the world and a stunning achievement in engineering. The Gondola's way station sits atop the summit of Apharwat Mountain, 13,780 feet (4,200 meters) above sea level.
Nanga Parbat Hike
Another worthwhile Hike is a 7-mile (11 kilometer) circuit through the pine forests around Gulmarg; this route offers stirring views of Nanga Parbat, the ninth highest mountain on Earth at a height of 26,660 feet (8,126 meters).
Other activities around Gulmarg include trekking, hiking, mountain biking, snowboarding, and long-distance skiing. In summer months, horseback riding, water-skiing, and fishing are popular activities, as well as golfing; Gulmarg features one of the highest altitude golf courses in the world.
Not only is Gulmarg is home to excellent, world-class ski terrain, but it is also not as visited as other skiing areas in Asia. As a result, skiers and snowboarders can pack in many runs per day on the slopes' pristine powder.
