Skiing in the Himalayas
Gulmarg has been the most captivating experience of my life. As soon as my flight landed at Srinagar the light cold breeze blew my heart away. Gulmarg is tucked away at the beginning of Himalayas and has the most beautiful slopes to ski and snowboard. My initial vacation was planned for a week of learning basic skiing but I ended up staying for 10 days. I could witness Kashmir before and after the snowfall. Kashmir has a rich culture and tradition; they welcome you with warm kava and even warmer smiles.
For me, skiing in Gulmarg was a first-time experience but the coaches trained me well. Initially, I learned to ski and take turns on baby slopes and finally, I skied down the mighty phase one slope, well I like to think that way at least. Kashmir also hosts the most amazing après skis. With a diverse environment, you meet people all around the globe. And I’m happy to admit that I found few of the happiest people and hope to have a very healthy relationship with them.
Thank you, Gulmarg for providing me with the experience of my life.
