The Mountain Resort With Beauty


Located in the Baramulla district, 57 km southwest of Srinagar, Gulmarg is a hill station with unparalleled natural beauty. The place is situated in a pine surrounded basin of the Pir Panjal range. Perched at an altitude of 2730 meters above sea level, Gulmarg was discovered as a hill resort in 1927 during the British rule in India. The place was originally called “Gaurimarg” by the local people, but the name was changed to 'Gulmarg' by Sultan Yusuf Shah in the 16th century.


Sultan was highly inspired by the beauty of the grassy slopes and flower meadows of Gulmarg. This destination served as a popular resort during the Mughal reign. Even the great emperor Jahangir once collected 21 different varieties of flowers from this valley. Gulmarg also boasts of having the highest green golf course in the world. The best time to visit Gulmarg is during winters between November to February.

It is a Muslim shrine located a few kilometres from Gulmarg. The shrine is built on the slopes below Gulmarg and can be reached from either Gulmarg or Tangmarg. Devoted to a renowned Muslim saint, who was a courtier of the Kashmir King Zain-ul-Abidin, the shrine witnesses thousands of devotees every year, regardless of any religion or faith.
