Unsurprisingly, in the middle of the Delhi summer, our thoughts are wandering to beautiful wintery Gulmarg. We haven’t been since the winter of ’15, so after a break of two years, we wanted to put this back on the calendar, and organise a super trip up from Delhi.
This is the opposite of staying at fancy places like Khyber – our goal is to go for as long as possible (a couple of us are planning to spend a full six weeks up), and we want to keep it cheap and fun. So expect to share a room, make friends, and be a part of our Delhi group.
We will be staying near the gondola, which is where all of the fun places to hang out are concentrated, there used to be a lively after-ski scene at Gulmarg! It’s great fun to be out all day, work super hard, and then get to chill by a fire with a hot toddy (or a beer) and meet people.
We expect acco to run about Rs 2,300 per person per night for sharing, and Rs 4,600 for a room to yourself; this includes breakfast and dinner. Gear and guides will run about Rs 1,500 per day. So plan your trip accordingly! Flights are super cheap, < 5k roundtrip from Delhi, plus an additional Rs 2,500 or so for taxi rides from SXR to Gulmarg.
If you’re interested, accept this invite, we’ll keep posting updates here, and email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions and your dates!
