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.

    Praveen's 4 days trip to Gulmarg

    Hi, The Following points I observed during the travel. 1. In my tour plan the car was etioss but I received swift dezire. First they give us Tavera then I raised the issue, after that they provide me Swift dezire. 2. When we arrived in srinagar, hotel The Victory, the room was not ready, Room service also not good, everytime we called for soap/ hot water/ bucket & other items. 3. The hotel apple tree food was not Good, Room service also not Good. Electricity service very poor, Pls do not recommend this hotel to customers. In two day entire night no electricity & no proper power back up. 4. I already shared my AIR Tickets for pre arrangement but I have seen there are some delays. 5. Sikara ride is to short, When I say why u r not doing complete round of sikara, then he replied we can provide only this ride, thenafter I will give him some amount for sikara ride. 6. Our Driver Mr. Nazir is Very Good, He help us every time. This is my worst experience with travel triangl, last time kerla trip was very good and I expect this trip give me wonderful memory, but I take bad experience with classic holiday. Only because of our driver, we take some good memory also.

    Devansh's 6 days trip to Gulmarg

    So this trip was well planned and well-executed, it's just don't fall into the trap of special arrangements from the agency as they will raise your expectations and end up screwing your special days or your surprises for your honeymoon or anniversary. I recommend you not to get any arrangements in the houseboat as you will be stuck in the middle of DAL Lake and you cannot do the last-minute arrangement either on your own. I had a special request of room decoration + candlelight dinner in a room + anniversary cake. I ended up getting a cake and a candlelight dinner in the common area and which is kinda uncomfortable, at the same time room decoration was not at all done and the excuse was that sorry sir we informed the hotel but they missed out and the hotel guys said that we were not informed about the same. Rest the trip was good but they screwed my special moments and arrangements

    We really enjoyed our first trip to Srinagar. We are looking forward to visit again in summer as we are alredy missing being there. We got to see and learn about Srinagar because of our driver who made out trip more enjoyable. Also the agent was always available during the trip to hear our concerns. We also got 1 hour complementary Shikara ride in Dal lake as part of our tour.
