    Hi Vargis,

    I am planning a solo trip of 6 days to Gulmarg this winter, just Gulmarg. Though the price of flight ticket is cheap, I wans't expecting the rates of hotels to be so high. Being a solo backpacker I prefer spending as low as possible for my stay. If its a trip of a day or two, I can still think about it staying for 3-4k per night. But being a 6 day trip, spending 3-4 grands per nigh, would punch a hole through my pocket.

    I am still hopeful that there might be a number of small homestays or hostels available in Gulmarg, which might not be listed in internet. If I am wrong, I might have to cancel the tickets and visit other snow destinations where we get cheaper accommodation.

    Please let me have your opinion on this? Do you think that there will be home stays which will offer cheap accommodation in Gulmarg?

    Thank you.

    Hi Kishoth - Honestly, there is no "budget" hotel as such in Gulmarg. I do not believe you will find any hotel there under Rs 2500 at the least. The nearest place where you can find a reasonably priced hotel is Tangmarg, about 13 kilometers from Gulmarg.

    Do one thing Kishoth ... Speak to this guy Javed in Srinagar at 9419070671. I just spoke to him myself and he says he should be able to arrange your stay at a hotel in Gulmarg for between Rs. 1000 - 1500. Have a word with him and see if you are able to work out a deal. I do not know him personally though, just a contact I have in Srinagar.
