Ever since its existence, Gulmarg, the 'Meadow of Flowers' has attracted more than a thousand tourists with its exceptional beauty. One of the main attractions of this place is Gulmarg Gondola which is the second highest cable car in the world. Phase 1 of this cable car lift was made operational from May 1998 while the other phase came into running after 6 years in May 2005. An addition was made in the form Chairlift or phase 3 in 2011. Since then it has been a commercial victory for the government of J&K. The construction of this cable car even boosted the tourism in the state. The Gondola ride gives you the most extravagant views of both Gulmarg and Khilanmarg. It captures the beauty and splendour of this place at its best.
The 1st phase of Gondola takes you to Kongdori Station which is situated at the height of 8530 ft and the second stage goes up to the altitude of 12293 ft. It gives you a chance to have magnificent views of Nanda Devi, LOC, and Pir Panjal range. Apart from cherishing the beauty of Himalayan ranges, tourists can enjoy other activities like horse riding and snow skiing. The pine surrounded area becomes a white blanket in winters making it a skiers paradise. The place is perfect for re-discovering the child within you!
