The approach through towering poplars reaches you to expanses of undulating slopes, lush green in summer and pristine white in winter. It offers a magnificent view of the mountains and is frequented by skiers, golfers and trekkers. The shrine of Baba Reshi, a saint revered by both Hindus and Muslims, lies close to Gulmarg.
Pahalgam (96 km)
This idyllic village on the banks of the Lidder River is popular with golfers and anglers. Pahalgam also has camping facilities, ponies for short rides, skiing equipment for the winter and white water rafting in the Lidder. At Kolahoi Glacier close by, it is possible to have a sledge ride on the ice. The surrounding pine forests are home to the Himalayan brown bear.
