Off piste skiing in Kashmir, an exceptional trip with a fabulous powder snow

i

Gulmarg, the " Flowered Meadow", is a small mountain resort in the state of Jammu-and-Kashmir in the Indian Himalaya. It was very popular amongst Indian royal families and the British stationed in India during the Raj. It fell from favor during the years of political unrest but has had a revival with the relative peace and calm created by the 2003 cease-fire between India and Pakistan.

Set between imposing Himalayan peaks (K2, 8611m) Gulmarg at 2690m is the highest and best-equipped ski resort in Continental Asia, with numerous ski lifts and a cable-car going up to 3950m.

i

Important snowfall during the whole winter result in an abundance of extraordinarily light powder. The off-piste and ski touring possibilities are endless, even in inclement weather when the magnificent forests offer shelter. The runs return to the resort or into the adjacent valleys from which a minibus takes us back to the hotel. 

This unique destination for off-piste and ski touring is also an opportunity to encounter the rich culture of the remote Himalayan valleys.

i

Optional heliskiing possible as extra.
