About Apharwat Peak

Gulmarg or “ground of flowers” (‘gul’ meaning ‘flowers’) is the most beautiful hill station of Srinagar. Situated in Gulmarg at the height of 14,403 feet above sea level is the summit of Apharwat Peak that remains thickly covered with snow, almost throughout the year. This peak is near Alpathar Lake and is popular for being the ultimate skiing destination. If you’re a ski- aficionado, this peak will play the perfect host for you to polish your ski skills and also challenge your talent with its adventurous slopes. For those not well-versed with the sport, well this is your chance to learn it. The sensitive ones need not worry, you can always take a quick sleigh and travel to the tip of the peak. The Apharwat Peak is a sight to behold, lush green surroundings during summers and thick envelope of snow during winters. Carry gloves and boots which are available for rent at various snow sports there. The peak opens from 9 AM to 7 PM for the adventure lovers. You may also visit the Ningle Nallah, a mountain stream that originates from the extreme peak of the Apharwat Peak. This later unites with the Jhelum River; you may cross it through a viaduct ending in Khilanmarg. Here, you get to witness the Nanga Parbat (fourth uppermost mountain of the Earth) in all its grandeur. Yes, all those pictures from your geography textbooks finally feel alive! Book your tickets to this thrilling destination that can be easily reached via airways, roadways or railways.
