I would give gulmarg a total miss if sonmarg and pahalgam are on the list to visit too. Nothing much to see or do except for gondola which is not so exciting and quiet expensive as well. Maybe in winter it is better but not in this season.

Thank funnz

There are 2 phases of the cable car. Ensure to go upto the second phase. From the 2nd phase, take a guide for a trekking experience to the frozen lake. The frozen lake wasnt 'frozem' when i visited in August. But the place was very serene, silent.
There was real queue system into the cable car while returning and it was kind of chaotic.
Some locals said they are going to replace the old cable car with new ones.
U can see shepherd houses when taking the gondola ride during summer

Recommend during the winter and to get one of local travel agent along with you to facilitate the tickets and booking , some time the power might get off but they used on it , so don’t worry

It was nice experience travelling by the cable car. However, it's bit expensive I would say. I visited during summer time, however, I believe the view will be better during winter. Regarding the safety, I don't know how safe are they as I heard that a family died falling off from the cable car in the year of 2017 during a sudden storm.

As we were a family of 6, our guide Mr Abdul Zandari (email welcome.kashmir@gmail.com, tel +91 8803057227) arrange for a local guide for us. We were lucky to visit both the stage. Stage 2 is mainly for a higher view. As the visit was in August, there was very little snow around the place. Place was not too crowded either. Views from the 2nd stage are breathtaking, when there are no clouds. 1st stage was also good. There is a large meadow, and pony riding is possible, but we avoided it. We spent quite some time here, enjoying the lovely atmosphere.

In winter, there is a good opportunity for skiing, so I hope I will be able to make it again when it snows.
