Gulmarg Backcountry Skiing

Food

Kashmiri Cuisine: not as spicy as traditional Indian curry but very tasty. Meals like rogan josh (lamb cooked spices), yakhiyn (lamb cooked in curd), hakh (a spinach-like leaf), rista-gushtaba (minced meat balls in tomato and curd curry) are available plus great Indian curries. Vegetables are a bit sparse in Kashmir, but the food is tasty and plentiful. You can sometimes get salads that are safe to eat and even fresh fruit.

Accommodation

We enjoy the evenings in the most comfortable hotel in Gulmarg, one of the newest and most luxurious in town.

Clothing & Equipment

Members will be sent a list detailing all necessary clothing and equipment to be individually provided.

Military History & Travel Warnings

India and Pakistan have fought at least three wars over Kashmir, including the Indo-Pakistani Wars of 1947, 1965 and as recently as 1999.

Currently, we feel the Gulmarg area is very safe and tourism is welcomed by the local Kashmiris. There is a lot of security and for the past five years, tourists have been travelling to Gulmarg without issue. But in saying this, we advise people to take normal precautions in Srinagar and not travel alone at night away from the tourist regions and to avoid any protests. Some governments still advise against travelling to Kashmir.
