Beside the mid-station of the Gulmarg gondola, is a comparitively recent development of a detachable quad chairlift. The Gulmarg gondola which has recently been constructed within a span of five years is over 20 years old in reality. It was bought years ago but lay idle on the ground because of the military and civil unrest which has plagued the region.
