Where I stayed
JKTDC Toursit hut Gulmarg

Flag of India  , Jammu and Kashmir,
Saturday, April 13, 2013

We stayed in JKTDC hut because of its locations and provided facilities like big bed room with electric blanket room heater dining hall etc., all facilities were there both water supply was not proper I called the room service man and he did something to ensure flow of water.  Geyser was also not functioning properly as  there was no 24 hours hot water supply from it 

We witnessed 2-3 inch thickness of snow ice just in front of our hut 
We had lunch at a Dhaba Next day proceeded to Gondola cable ride 

As I already gathered information at Tripadvisor  of heavy rush and to beat the rush one should be at the counter at 9.00 am we were there at 8.30 am and many touts approached (strictly speaking I must say "disturbed us") us and offered to buy tickets/boarding pass for extra money I denied them
As I already bought online ticket for phase I kungdoor and phase II affwarawat I exchanged them for boarding pass and boarded into the cable car at 10.00 am 

If climate is not proper  or any technical issue of cable they would cancel the ride but for me no such thing happened and we went  up to phase II

As soon as we came out of cable car we witnessed 4 feet of massive sheet of snow ice at affarawat it was slippery though we wore boot 
It was really a lifetime experience I am sure that my mind will cherish in its memory for a long time

Coverage of Reliance mobile network at Gulmarg was worst  I could hardly make any phone calls from mobile
