About Gulmarg

Gulmarg, or the 'Meadow of Flowers', at an altitude of 2,730 m, was developed by the British around a meadow on the northern flank of the Pir Panjal range. Gulmarg is located 52 km from Srinagar. Originally it was called as 'Gaurimarg'. Inspired by the sight of its grassy slopes emblazoned with wild flowers, Sultan Yusuf Shah gave its present name in the 16th century. Gulmarg's prime location, legendary beauty and its proximity to Srinagar make it natural one of the premier hill resorts in the country. Gulmarg was a favourite haunt of Emperor Jehangir. The main attraction here is to venture up through the backing stands of mature pines towards the bald ridge of Mt Afarwat. Gulmarg in winter looks more beautiful due to heavy snowfall. And it turns into India's premier Ski resort in winter.
