As stated in previous review, it is a beautiful place but the guides should learn to leave alone someone who does not need to be guided.
Have shared something about the guides in my other review of Gulmarg Hotel area. Do visit in winters, the snow completely changes the place what it is in summers.
Good snow mountain, good view, good for relaxation, good for skiing and winter sports, for family and children.
Gulmarg is a very beautiful place to relax with Himalayas all around you. But the bad thing is pony horses who have made this heaven a hell.
Difficult to breathe in town due to their smell and difficult to walk due to their being in hundreds on tiny roads. If ponies are removed from Gulmarg it will become heaven again.
Gulmarg is a great place to see but the Pony Unions have made a mess of this place. They are rude and do not allow you to go around in your own taxi - they force you to either take their ponies or youhave to walk.
This is a very difficult proposition if you have young children or older parents with you. If one can get rid of these Pony Unions and get battery operated vehicles then this place will continue to attract tourists else it will not be long before people stop going here.
