True, you will forever be carrying the memories of natural grassy with wild flowers, fir-covered hillsides, steep snowy slopes and snow-covered mountains, but it might be good idea to have souvenirs and local handicrafts to go with them. There are a number of pedestrianized shopping markets where you can buy cane and bamboo items, woolen items, brass, silverware and art pieces. Here, Woollen shawls and Pashminas are good buys. Carpets and rugs are another specialty of the region, hand woven by locals. Thinking of changing or adding to your home furniture? You could explore the carved furniture, made from local timber and walnut trees, sold here.
Many of the hotels and resorts in Gulmarg have their own in-house souvenir shops. However, browsing the local markets for handicrafts and souvenirs is one of the best ways to know the place and appreciate its cultural fabric. Do check out the exclusive souvenir shop that has opened at Gulmarg Gondola. You can have your photographsprinted on T-shirts and Coffee mugs, one of the four places in India where this facility is available and carry back with you tinned Wazwan and Saffron.
