The meadow of flowers Gulmarg is an outstanding hill resort for the nature-admirers, honeymoon couples and adventurers. An imposing carpet of lavishly green grasses and colourful flowers cover the place during summers and falls, while the winters let it don the white sheet of snow. Breathtaking views of snow-topped Himalayan peaks, dense pine forests, majestic mountain streams and some extremely serene lakes make one feel having dialogue with Mother Nature.

Thrilling ski slopes, along with ski lifts, ski courses and ski competitions draw huge flocks of adventurers to this fabulous hill station.
