    This post is more of a visual representation; or a photo guide to the forum post where I explained on how you can plan a ride on a Gulmarg Gondola in Kashmir. Along with the pictures below, I recommend that you also read through the blog post at the link below.

    This is the entry point of Gulmarg Gondola station. It looks like a fancy hotel really but it is just a gate. They have the entire cable car set up inside it.

    Once you step in, you will be in this waiting room.

    Before going in however, you must buy your tickets from the booking counter which is actually outside.

    This is how your tickets will look along with the fare.

    A little good to know information including some details about Gondola and a few Dos and Donts.

    And once you are in, you finally board the Gondola for Phase 1. Be careful while you step on. The Gondolas remain in constant motion and you will have to jump on it as it moves forward slowly.

    And then you finally arrive at Kungdoor station after about 10 minutes. This is the end of Phase 1.

    And then you board a second Gondola for Phase 2, the top of Apharwat peak.
