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!

    • Trip to Gulmarg

      It was a complete Kashmir package consisting of Srinagar, Gulmarg and Pahalgam. Agent Zahida and her counter part assisted well, though thy were extremely busy with EID celebrations. Hotel's and Houseboat were of good quality but the food served at Sringar hotel was okay. Houseboat meal was damn good.

      Our trip to Kashmir was as good as it gets. The locals there are warm and phenomenally enthusiastic. Our driver ,Mr.Rayees was a nice and soft spoken man. Trip was well organised by Mr.Owais. Although we faced some issues with our hotel in Pahalgam, he tried his way best to help us. Hotels in Srinagar were pretty good though. Altogether a wonderful experience and shall look forward to visiting again. The trip to Gulmarg was a total bliss..

      An absolutely mesmerizing experience that is sure to stay long in our memories.. & hearts! Everything from the way the trip was coordinated by Ms. Firdose, to some of the best friendships we've made with people like Amin bhai.. a truly "heaven-on-earth" kinda trip that could've been made possible by the wonderful team at Milli! The entire section of our trip encompassing Gulmarg.. the Gondola ride, trekking through the snow to the Aphwarwat peak and concluding with our ever-so decadent Anniversary dinner at the Vintage, arrangedd by Milli. All this complemented with the wonderful company of Amin bhai all through.. simply Masha Allah!! Couldn'tve asked for more :)

      The last time I wrote a testimonial for anyone was when I was active on Orkut. A lot has changed since then. Life has become so fast paced that no one has the time to write a testimonial. Even Orkut has now given way to Hello. However, this particular trip has compelled me to thank everyone involved in making it a possibility. Thank you Sarika for providing timely updates about the status of the booking before the trip started. Thank you Sukhi bhai and Viru bhai for helping us travel in Jammu without any hassles. Hotel Red Rose was exceptional with their services and were kind enough to arrange dinner late in the night after we reached Jammu around 10:30pm and the hotel around 11pm. Thank you very much :) Hotel Dolphin in Katra, however were unable to arrange for dinner and were strictly following their rules of the cut off time of 11pm, even though I tried to request them to keep some food aside for us if they can as we got late from the Vaishno Devi darshan. Understandably so. But then, that's what makes Hotel Red Rose in Jammu and Hotel Milad in Srinagar different from them, and if I may say so, a little more accommodating. Special thanks to the staff in Hotel Milad and also those in the houseboat on Dal Lake. The food offered at the both the hotel and the houseboat was very tasty. They made our stay in Srinagar even more memorable. The best experience of them all was in Pahalgam. Our stay at The Paristan Resort was the most memorable. The food, the staff, the environment.. just about everything was top notch. And Aijaz bhai was more a friend and guide than a driver during the trip. So much so that my mother confessed to me that she had tears in her eyes when he bid goodbye to us at the Jammu railway station at the end of the trip. Can't thank you enough for making this journey special, Aijaz bhai :) Last but not the least, thank you so very much Saba, from Kashmir Boulevard for making this trip possible. My sister wanted to ensure she visited Shiv Khori after Vaishno Devi darshan during our stay in Katra and Saba was the only one amongst 3 different travel agents who tried her best to accommodate it and customise the trip like we wanted it to be. She was proactive and ensured that the journey went ahead as planned at every destination by keeping a check on everything. You're the reason for the smile on my parents' faces. And that's only one of the many reasons I'm thankful to you for :). Like I said about Aijaz bhai, Can't thank you enough, Saba :) Our stay at Srinagar and Pahalgam. Those memorable drives with Aijaz bhai to Sonmarg and Gulmarg and our experiences there.
