Gulmarg Gondola Ride Gulmarg's exquisite beauty, its pine surrounded basins, and opulence of blooming flowers make it a prime hill station in Jammu & Kashmir. During winters it is the country's major ski resort which is accessible by the Gulmarg Gondola. The Gondola Cable Car covers an aerial distance of 5 km and reaches the Apharwat top. It operates in two phases. The first phase takes you from Gulmarg to Kongdoor. It starts from 2,990 m and has a vertical rise of 400 m. Every hour it ferries 1500 people to the height of 3100 m from where several easy runs for skiing are accessible. The ways are made through pines and snow-covered slopes. Next, phase 2 brings into the picture the enormous Himalayan Ranges as it goes to a level higher than before. The cable car ascends 1,330 vertical metres to a height of nearly 4,000m and reaches the Apharwat Mountain. It carries 600 people per hour. After arriving at the station, you can further have a 30 minutes trek to reach the mountaintop. From here the LOC or the Line of Control is visible.
