About Apharwat Peak in Gulmarg

Apharwat Peak is one of the main attractions of Gulmarg tourism. Ski-lovers always find their way to this summit to enjoy their hobby. This place is sure to provide you an out of the world experience while skiing. Since Kashmir is popularly known as the Switzerland of India, you would not deny this post your visit to Apharwat peak. If you are just a beginner and would love to experience skiing, then there is no better place to start than in Apharwat peak. Here, you have all the scope to learn this adventure sport of skiing as well as polish your rusted skills. Since the peaks are completely snow enclosed from all sides, they pose a challenge to even the most professional skiers.

If you are no ski lover, worry not, you can take a quick and comfortable sleigh ride to the tip of the Apharwat peak. This is a wonderful experience in itself that you will never forget. The view that you would get to enjoy during your ride till the very tip of the peak will be jaw-dropping to say the least.

The location of the peak is near the Alpathar Lake that guarantees a breathtaking view from up-top all round the year (be it summer or winter). The look of the Apharwat peak during summers and winters is completely different. While the summer view gives you more chance to take-in its lush green surroundings, the winter will give you the snow-whitey appearance.

To describe the beauty of this peak in few words, it would be honest to describe them as enchanting snowy peaks with a dreamy serene lake by its side. The still surface of the lake reflects the mighty glory of the towering peaks. The surrounding greenery just adds to the whole picture postcard moment.

The view of and from Apharwat peak will teleport you to a fairytale land, far away from the reality of the worldly affairs. The scenery also gives scope for beautiful photographic moments and lifetime captures for photography enthusiasts. If you have never experienced a live snowfall, you got to head to this peak. Make a snow-man or have some fun time picking up a snow-fight with your family and friends while up there.

Do not miss visiting the Apharwat peak when visiting Gulmarg. It is just about 13 km away from Gulmarg and is a must visit tourist spot. The journey to the Apharwat peak will be more enjoyable than being there, what with the wonderful scenery to ogle at!

    Afiya was the representative from Classic Holidays. Our plan was kind of all of a sudden and Afiya had organised a very nice trip for us within very little time. All the hotels were good as per our expectations given the time constraint we had. And the driver (Balal) of our trip is a very skilled dr
    iver, he is very well aware of all the places and situations. He also informed us about some strike that was going to happen near Tangmarg so that we could leave the place well before the time. All in all we had a really great experience with Classic Holidays in Kashmir. Thanks a lot Afiya for organising our trip.
