About Tea Plucking in Gulmarg

When talking about “things to do” in Gulmarg, you can indulge in tea plucking. Of course, there`s no skipping the mountainous adventure sports like skiing and snowboarding but you must also get to experience the local non-adventurous activities like tea plucking.

For those who like the slow side of life instead of the risky ones like skiing, especially love the experience of tea plucking. Many people would have already indulged in tea plucking in other hill stations of India but doing it in Gulmarg would be different because the altitude is higher and the weather is better.  

If you visit Gulmarg and not go tea plucking, your holiday will remain incomplete. The terraced tea plantations are beautiful to even take a casual stroll through them. While tea picking, you also get to sample the famous Kashmiri kahwa. Kahwa is a Kashmiri special recipe of tea that is a blend of soda and salt in sheer tea. This mix does sound weird to people from other parts of India but it does taste refreshingly intriguing to the taste buds. And what is a holiday without exploring the local cuisine right?

You can get to dress up like the local tea pluckers for photographs during the tour of the tea estates. The tea basket on your back and the bandana on your head will transform you into one of the locals momentarily.

Kashmir has two specialized tea to offer you, Kashmiri Kahwa and sheer tea. The sheer tea is salty to taste and pinkish in color while Kahwah is green in color. These special tea preparations are made with the locally grown tea leaves. Baked snack acts as accompaniments with these tea beverages.

Tea plucking in Gulmarg is popular among honeymoon couples, who like to play dress-up and get photographed. Beautiful photography can be done keep the tea garden as background. The location serves perfect as a page in the honeymoon diaries. Whether you choose for a stereotype pose or an innovative one, the poser in you will get the better of you in a tea plantation. The romantic weather and the surrounding greenery with the backdrop of mountains is just perfect to kindle the romance in you.

So, all said and done, do not skip tea plucking with your loved ones in Gulmarg. It is an activity that unwinds you and helps you relax. This activity is best enjoyed in summers when there is no snow to mess with your day-out. The guides and locals in the tea estates are very warm people and they welcome you to give you the best experience that you deserve. You are free to ask them questions about the tea plucking and processing and they will explain it to you the best they can.

    Shikhar's 6 days trip to Gulmarg

    It was pleasant experience booking with travel triangle and eventually being handled by proxima holidays. From Proxima , Mehvish , did tried her best to ensure no hassles should occur during my 5 nights and 6 days trip. Regarding stay : Srinagar - Stay at Karam Gold was was awesome. They have good
    buffet option and food is also very tasty. Pehelgam - Stay at Pehelgam retreat was just ok. Rooms were very small. And one thing which i came to know after reaching there was that there is fix timing for both Geyser and AC heater , which was very annoying. Food was just ok Gulmarg - Stay at Royal park was good. The property is very nice with scenic view. Food was just ok. Rooms were good in size and aesthetics were good. Houseboat - My biggest blooper was stay at houseboat. There were too many negatives about houseboat. Although the houseboat in look was very good with good big size rooms. My stay was with Canada Group of Houseboat which was at Nigeen lake ( which was good , I didn't like Dal Lake much). With giant size rooms , there were almost zero facility in the houseboat. Most of the time AC heater wasn't working due to electricity issue so it was chilling specially during night. And caretaker didn't took any load to start the generator. There was no water bottle in the room ( very basic ) and if u ask for one you will be charged for it. There was a very good bathtub in the washroom , but no soap or shampoo. There wasn't even a dental kit available and upon asking one toothpaste also , we were denied. Food was home cooked and not good at all as options were also very limited. My driver through out the journey was very good and cab which was given to me was etios . Overall a good trip ( but very little discomfort )

    Kashmir is a nice place to visit... but one thing I need to mention here that doesn't matter how many things are included in your package you still need to pay extra everytime in kashmir as a tip and that tip is equally as the booked amount for anything Witnessed the fresh snowfall in sonmarg.

    We had a worst experience with amazing India routes. We were told that hotels are 4 star but was given 1 star or 2 star. Hotel in gulmarg dining area stinks. Hotel in pahalgam was even worst(Woods resort) it is a old building with no safety at all. See the view from hotel as attached here. Hotel in
    Srinagar was better but I had book my hotel seperately as I didn't want to stay there. Travel company has no idea about requirements. They totally messed it up on my anniversary.
