This is the 2nd phase of Gulmarg Gandola & it takes you at an altitude of approx 14000 feet..The views from here are stunning, due to high altitude,low oxygen & strong winds be very careful..Wear appropriate clothes as climate can change in a flash.

We unfortunately went during late September when there wasn't any snow and it still looked incredible. But I would recommend others to go during November to April May period to witness this in all its glory.

Gulmarg is very nice in may. except there won't be snow fall. But if you have ssnowfall, generally december and january, you will not be able to go to the second stage as it will be closed. As such 'May ' is excellent.
