I just got back from a quick trip to Gulmarg, where I stayed at The Khyber. This resort bowled me over, with its stunning location facing the snow-clad mountains (more coming up on this soon).
When I checked into The Khyber earlier this week, the real snow – and therefore, ski – season had not started in Gulmarg. I could see some snow on the resort grounds and had a clear view of the mountains in the distance. And then, a couple of days later (and luckily, a day before I was to leave), it began to snow. And I woke up to a beautiful white blanket of snow all around me.
I think it is best captured in these Before and After photos – taken at roughly the same time in the morning on two respective days.
