If you're going on a Kashmir trip, you must also be paying a visit to the renowned destination- Gulmarg. So if you go to Gulmarg, don't forget about these prime locations that you must visit.



Maharaja’s Palace


As the name suggests, Maharaja's Palace was once the royal palace of the King of Kashmir, Rajat Ranbir Singh. This palace has now become a tourist destination where people get to see the insights of the royal life of the King. The palace might've been royal at some point in time but with time its infrastructure has lost its charm, although it looks really grand and beautiful from the outside surrounded by all the tall pine trees and colourful flowers.


If you're someone interested in history, it will definitely pique your interest to see the insights of the life and palace of a Hindu ruler, currently dominated by non-Hindu population. And you'll be pleasantly surprised to know that the ticket to this royal palace is only INR 30.00, which makes it a must-visit spot if you're in Gulmarg.


Gulmarg Golf Course


It doesn't matter whether you're interested in the sport of Golf or not, the greenery and beauty of the Golf Course makes it one of the prime locations in Gulmarg. The fact that a golf course is located in Gulmarg reflects back to the fact that once the British ruled this area and it was built by them only.


One thing you can keep in mind, on your Kashmir package is that everything dates back to a different history and will open a different perspective in your mind.



Gondola Ride


Of course we can't forget about the Gondola Ride when we talk about Gulmarg, can we? After all this Gondola ride  is the highest cable chain ride in the world and you can't miss out on it when you're getting the chance. This ride is divided in two phases and the ride offers you the mesmerizing scenic view of mountains and the whole Gulmarg valley.



Maharani Temple


The temples in Kashmir tell a historical cultural story of the Hindus that have lived in Kashmir. Built by the King Hari Singh this temple is said to be the royal temple of Dogra Dynasty and is dedicated to lord Shiva. Due to the historical value and being a Hindu temple in Kashmir, Maharani temple becomes a must-visit spot when you're in Kashmir.


With this the blog comes to an end. We hope that you book your Kashmir tour package as soon as possible and enjoy your Kashmir expedition.


Good luck!
