The Gulmarg Gondola is only minutes away from our porch, making The Khyber a ski in – ski out resort. The world’s highest ski lift will whisk you away to Kongdoori Mountain, on the shoulder of Mount Affarwat, which at 13,780 feet is the highest ski point in the Himalayas. Certified instructors, quality equipment and the right apparel is at hand, courtesy the Indian Institute of Skiing and Mountaineering. Not to mention the freshly powdered slopes that make this Asia’s 7th best ski destination.
TREKKING AND ADVENTURE
The Khyber Resort is a great starting point for treks and walks and whether you’re a true adventurer or an enthusiastic beginner, our trained experts will guide you through the terrain. The trek to Khilanmarg Valley to see spring flowers is amongst the most enchanting. The more adventurous can trek through snow-clad mountains to the serene Alpather Lake. For anglers, there’s the Ningle Nallah and the Ferozepur Nallah, both streams famous for trout fishing.
Take guide-led tours of the meadows and plains in the vicinity, from late spring through to the autumn. Stop for a picnic lunch, an afternoon of rest and recreation, or simply to smell the roses.
Some of our rooms look out to the first tee of the world’s highest green golf course. You can hire sets and caddies (there are even woods and irons for lefties) and play perhaps the most picturesque nine holes – and a back nine, if you’re up to it – of your life.
The Igloo is our activity room for children and is well stocked with board games and gaming consoles.
The Den lets you have your pick of the latest Bollywood and Hollywood releases as well as many other classic titles.
You don’t always have to be out and about to enjoy yourself at the Khyber. There’s snooker cum billiards in our Games Room.
