Best Time to Visit Gulmarg

Gulmarg is a year-round tourist hotspot with people thronging the valley at all the times of the year as per their interests.

The peak season for tourists is the spring and summer months beginning from March until June. This is also the best time to visit Gulmarg, as you get to experience the true colours of this place called ‘Meadow of Flowers’. As the snow starts to melt, blossoming flowers and growing greenery lend a majestic aura to this place and is much preferred by people visiting with families. The temperatures don’t go beyond 29 degrees during the day but can go down to 10 degrees at night. Owing to heavy rush of families during these months and to save yourself from last minute heavy prices, it is suggested to book your Gulmarg holiday well in advance.

Gulmarg receives moderate rainfall during the monsoon months of July and August and is visited by tourists who do not want to be part of the maddening summer rush. This is an ideal time to take part in adventure sports and one can also get discounts on hotel bookings during this time.

Winters begin from October and the region receives snowfall starting November, which lasts until February. The temperatures go well below zero degrees. Owing to widespread snowfall, the place starts buzzing with winter sports enthusiasts who like to indulge in activities such as skiing, snowboarding and tobogganing. Due to this, the Gulmarg tour packages for winters have become hugely popular.
