about gulmarg biosphere

Whether you are a bird-lover, naturalist or simply looking for an adventure, a hike through the rich vegetation of the biosphere is a must. Aptly named, the place is home to some of the more endangered and protected species like the Leopard, Musk Deer, Black Bear, Red Fox, etc. As far as the flora of the place is concerned, the Conifers account for almost 90% of the forest cover. Deodars, Pines and Horse chestnuts are other principal tree species. Deciduous flowering shrubs like Himalayan Indigo and Kashmir Fasle Spirea are also a common sight here. The ground cover is made up of a variety of herbs and mosses. Carry a pair of binoculars, as you might just sight the Blue Rock Pigeon, Snow Cock, Jungle Crow, Griffon vulture or or other rare bird species, flying through or taking a breather on the towering conifers. The ideal time to see the wild animals is considered between September to March while the ideal time to see birds is considered March to May. March to May is also the time when the biosphere is left fragrant by the blooming and flowering of many of the trees and shrubs resident here and is dotted with a kaleidoscope of flowers. For those who are interested, there are tourist lodges easily available in Gulmarg. And those who are looking for more adventure can opt for spending a night at the camping sites close to the reserve. To book your reservations, please contact the Chief Wildlife Warden of Jammu and Kashmir.
