About Explore Gulmarg Biosphere Reserve

A magnet for lovers of wildlife, and located 48km from Srinagar, the 180 sq km Gulmarg Biosphere Reserve is the natural habitat for protected species like the Himalayan musk deer, red fox, black bear and brown bear. It is also considered a bird watchers’ paradise with many avian species existing here, which includes upland birds, both resident and migratory. The best season for bird viewing are the months of March-May when a lot of migratory bird species fly through. The right time for animal sighting is between the months of September and March. The sprawling reserve lies across an altitude range of 2,400 to 4,300 meters above sea level. While visiting this precious biosphere, it is important to dress in camouflage colors and advisable not to make noise. Gulmarg Biosphere Reserve is one of the best places to view wildlife because of its combination of wetlands, thick bush and extensive forests.
