Sightseeing & Shopping in Gulmarg


There is a viewpoint on the road that loops around Gulmarg situated between the first and second entry points that lead into town. On a clear day, the view is amazing.

Temples and Religious Buildings

There are a few Religious temples, Church and Mosque.

If you have time, it is a nice visit to go to Babarishi, have a tea and visit the temple.

Shopping in Gulmarg

Shopping in Gulmarg is pretty limited. There are a few shawl and carpet stores in Gulmarg. There are a couple of nice shops in the same building as Bakshi Restaurant. The other very nice one is near the Kashmir Alpine Ski Rental.

You can also get a tailor-made Pheran. This is the traditional Kashmiri winter coat. Mr. Khan has a Tailor shop in the village by the mosque. He charges good money for his tailor-made Pherans, but he does a good job and is a very nice man.

Mr. Khan also makes very nice hoodies. He has refined his technique over the years and is now an expert in making tailored personal hoodies. You choose your style, the material, the insulation, and bargain over the price with him….2 days later, you will be happy and comfy…
