History of Gulmarg: –
Gulmarg is a small hill station in Baramulla district of Jammu and Kashmir. If you go to this hill station, which is 52 km away from Srinagar, the capital of Kashmir, and at an altitude of 8,625 feet, you will be in doubt whether the place is Gulmarg or some unknown snow-covered city in Switzerland. Looking at its history, it can be seen that Gulmarg was the favorite holiday destination of King Yusuf Shah Chak and Emperor Jahangir. The previous name of this iceberg was ‘Gaurimarg’. The mountain was named after the wife of the Hindu god Shiva. But in the evolution of time that name became Gulmarg at one time.
Located 42 km from Srinagar, on the way to Dras, Kargil, Le Ladakh. Car rental will be Rs. On the way there is a beautiful Indus river. Many beautiful valleys and springs can be seen there. Places to visit in Sonamarg include Jajila Pass, Thajiwas Glacier (from Sonamarg to Thajiwas Glacier car rental Rs. 2500-3500 / -), Gangabal Lake, Gadsar Lake, Visanta Lake, Sastar Lake.
But apart from these, the beauty of Dudhpatri, Kokarnag, Daksum or Synthentop is actually more fascinating. Aharbal Falls is also a unique destination. It seems to me impossible to perceive the form of the Himalayas without going on the road to Charar-e-Sharif in Budgam district. Going further up from there, you can see Dudhganga. Ular Lake is the largest freshwater lake in South Asia to the north. Another small lake in Ganderbal is called Manasbal.
