It is only when you reach the northernmost limits of the country do you enjoy access to the snow and hail and the wonderful winter sport opportunities that it offers.

The eastern part of the Himalayas offer wonderful mountaineering options. For those who want a bit of plain old snow combined with winter sports like snowboarding, skiing and other such winter sports, Gulmarg is the place to visit.

The biggest advantage of visiting this tourist destination in Jammu and Kashmir is that it is being consciously marketed as a winter sports capital. This means that the facilities offered to tourists are the best in the country and comparable to facilities offered in various resorts all over the world.

The fact that winter sport athletes in India travel to and train in Gulmarg should be sufficient testimony of quality of services offered. The conscious efforts to promote this destination for tourism means there are ample facilities related to accommodation, tourism and holidaying. It goes without saying that this will be an extremely cold destination and that one should travel with adequate facilities for protection from the cold.

Gulmarg is accessible by road and those traveling from outside should fly in the state capital of Srinagar for further travel by road to the destination. A relatively less known activity that is very popular in Gulmarg is trekking. You can make use of the rough terrain for some highly enjoyable treks that take you right into the lap
