GULMARG

Gulmarg
Gulmarg is half the enchantment of reaching there-- roads bordered by avenues of poplar give over to flat expanses of rice fields interspersed with picturesque villages. Depending on the season, nature's colours could be the translucent green of spring, summer's rich emerald, or autumn's golden hues, when scarlet chillies festoon windows of village homes. After Tangmarg, the climb to Gulmarg begins through fir-covered hillsides. At one point, known simply as View Point, travellers generally stop their vehicles for a few minutes and look out a spectacle of snow-covered mountains, almost within touching distance.
Golfing Holidays - It is for golfing that Gulmarg has long been famous. Situated at an altitude of 2,650 m, it is the highest 18-hole green golf course anywhere in the world. The historic Gulmarg Golf Club was started in 1911 by the British who used the place as a holiday resort. The payment of a daily fee entitles one to play 18 holes on course maintained by the State Tourism Department. For the would-be golfer, there are golf sets on hire, professionals to instruct one in the game, and short-term memberships.
Gulmarg is powder paradise for adventure lovers as well as famous hill station for both Domestic and foreign tourists 

places to visit in Gulmarg
1.Drung valley
Just 14 kms from Gulmarg and 3 from Tangmarg, this Drung tourist spot is one of a kind. It was recently discovered and obviously has no hotels or other accommodations to boast. It makes little difference as the nearby Tangmarg has plenty of options for lodging & boarding. Drung is promoted for trout fishing and rock climbing facilities.
It is an ideal place for short duration trips or even a day’s picnic and it resembles to Pahalgam. The only difference being that though there exists a large stream; it is not as large as Lidder which flows downstream into the spot.
Drung is tucked away too deep in the pine forests and many log bridges can be seen used to cross over the stream. The side effect is that no artificial touches have altered in any way the beauty of this place.
Some monuments over the hills are believed to be the runs of Pandava temples. Only a few of the blocks have survived and the area is not much protected either.
2.Frozen Lake
Frozen Lake, located beyond Aparwath, remains completely frozen until mid-June. Triangular in shape, the lake lies at the foot of the twin 4,511 m Apharwat peaks. Located 13 km away from Gulmarg, the lake has a backdrop of scenic hilly snow-capped terrains. The adventure tourists can take the one-day and thirteen km trip to the Alpather Lake from Gulmarg. 
Swiftly flowing at the foot of Alpather Mountain, the Alpather Lake is away from the populace of the city of flowers. The frozen months of the lake hit the senses of the man at the sight of the brutality and stability of nature. The frozenness represents the stoic side of life. Amidst the gliding air, environs and life of Gulmarg, the lake signifies the need for passivity in the crisis enveloped area of Kashmir. The glistening rays carve a spectrum of myriad colors with drops of frozen water in the lake manifesting the colorful and blissful soul in the frozenness of the lake.

 

Nature of Alpather Lake:  

The Lake is frozen till the middle of the June, beyond its substantial static months of frozenness; small flecks of ice along with clear water are visible floating on the surface of the lake. The chilled lumps of ice swings on the layer of blue transparent water, which reaches the city with the whiff of freshness and purity of Himalayas. This is a small meadow having beautiful blue lake on its summit is frozen and offers excellent skating ground. 

Location of The Lake:  

The Lake is a suitable ride on the mountainous pony from the city. Pony track over the 3,810 m Apharwat ridge and up the valley to the lake at 3,843m comprises the trekking path for reaching the site. The steep slope can be trekked by the lovers of trekking and hiking, the rough and under developed soil of the land in the open and vast chain of endless hills and conical peaks is a paradise walk for people who relish nature walks.

The lake can be reached by enjoying the bounties of green Himalayas on a horse, which is easily available in the market of Gulmarg. Professional riders can hire a horse and ride through the woods, whereas tourists are supplied with guides for safety. The up and down path can be passed through by honeymooners to experience the exoticism of romance lingering in the town of Gulmarg.
