A trip to Gulmarg is incomplete without riding its famous cable car Gondola Ride. It’s considered the highest and longest cable car project in the whole of Asia, which speaks volume. A joint venture of the Jammu and Kashmir government and French firm Pomagalski, this ropeway project is perhaps the best way to marvel at the matchless beauty of Gulmarg and get back home with loads of cherished memories.
The Gulmarg Gondola is a 2-stage ropeway capable of ferry about 600 people per hour. Visitors here ferried to and from Kongdoori Mountain and during the ride, enjoy the splendor of the Afarwat Peak (4,200 m (13,780 ft)). The cable car takes visitors to the peak of Apharwat which is some 3980 metersatop sea level. More so, lift-served access is also provided to visitors here.
Further, Gondola Ride has helped Gulmarg join the list of the ‘highest lift-served ski resorts’ in the world. During the ride, guests can expect to cover a maximum of 5 kilometers of distance. The ride helps visitors enjoy panoramic views of the Himalayas and feel truly blessed. The sight and pleasure of cable car ascending higher and coming closer to the Apharwat Mountain is sure to take your breath away.
