about trekking in gulmarg

Against the backdrop of clear, blue skies and bright sunshine, Gulmarg provides an excellent base for trekking. There are quite a few trails that you could take. Gulmarg to Khilanmarg (5 km), Khilanmarg to Alpather Lake (8 km), Gulmarg to Leinmarg (16 km), Gulmarg to Ningle Nallah (10 km) are some of the more popular ones. Most of them will take you through meadows and forests lush with wildflowers and rare trees like the ornamental Himalayan Horse chestnut, crisscrossing through rivers and streams. As you trek through these trails, Nanga Parbat can be seen to the North from several points. The Pir Panjal range from a distance seems quite blunt and rounded, but when you come close enough to walk up its slopes, you'll find the peaks to have similar steepness as the Himalayas. If you point your feet towards the south, you'll come across the Ferozepur Nala and several charming little hamlets lying beyond. You might need a local guide or stop to ask the locals for the right directions. The route to Tosamaidan is also quite popular where you pass picturesque villages, sparkling streams, green fields filled with grazing sheep and shepherd huts, the Sunset point and the Romushi Nala.  Although you can hire trekking gear from the tour operators and hotels, it may be a good idea to carry your own. During peak seasons, there may not be enough gear to cover all.

In case you just want to explore the surroundings, there’s a 7-km walk called the Inner Ring Road that you can wander along on foot if the ponywallahs leave you alone, or an 11-km walk called the Outer Ring Road which takes you through stands of pine.
