ALL INCLUSIVE GUIDED OFF-PISTE AND BACKCOUNTRY SKI SAFARI TO GULMARG IN THE INDIAN HIMALAYAS

In Indian Kashmir, Gulmarg, which is located at an altitude of 2690 mts, is the highest and best equipped ski resort in continental Asia. Its gondola lift which culminates at an altitude of 3950 mts gives access to a vast off-piste domain. Whether on the front de neige with the locals, on the summits in front of the K2 and its 8611 mts, or in the forest skiing when the langurs observe us from the top of the conifers, the atmosphere of this trip is a powerful mix where sport and culture of the remote Himalayan valleys combine marvelously.

GULMARG - MONT APHARWAT - HIMALAYA

Ski many virgin itineraries in the Pir Panjal mountain range in India.

Gulmarg, the “Prairie of Flowers”, is a small mountain resort in the state of Jammu and Kashmir in the Indian Himalayas, which has long been a popular resort for both Indian princely families and the British stationed in India, before falling into oblivion due to revolts and insecurity. Since the ceasefire between India and Pakistan in 2003 and the return of peace and relative calm, tourism has revived.

Gulmarg is a true nirvana of off-piste skiing, powder snow, wide open terrain, large spaced trees, defenitely a change of scenery and a bunch of exotic discoveries. This trip is resolutely freeride oriented because the off-piste and sidecountry skiing possibilities are countless, even in case of bad weather thanks to the protection of magnificent forests. The ski itineraries taking us to powder descents take place around the ski area in the direction of the adjacent valleys from which you enter the hotel by minibus, however to earn some routes we will also have to use the skins.
