We visited Apharwat Peak level 2 of Gondola Ride on 20th May. The peak is the best but the worst thing is the ski guys who tell you that they will take you to LoC for Rs. 1000/- per person but you will be shocked...More

You can access Apharwat Peak by Gondola Phase 2 ride. Outstanding place, covered by snow all over. Dont miss it when you are in Kashmir valley.

Outstanding, spectacular, surreal.. cannot find more adjectives to describe this. One can reach this only if you have opted for the Phase 2 of the Gondola ride. Would recommend booking Gondola tickets online rather than taking a chance at the counter. During our visit Phase...More

Visiting may last week. 3 ladies (70+ mother, 50+ wife , 30+ daughter) and me & my 20+ son. Many of the reviews recommend hiring Guide. 1-How much it would cost? 2-At which place to be hired? 3- What services are expected?

please book ticket online..a guide can get you ticket and boarding pass and manage fast checkin....price ranges from 500-1000.its atcually not recommend but then depends on your comfort.

Our plan is may last week visit. Quest1 - Coming with 70+ mother. Walk slowly catching my hand. What would u advise....Leave mother+wife at phase 1 and only me+son to go for phase2 OR can manage mother and wife too at phase2​? Quest 2 - I heard that to reach gondala station need to walk 20min. How can I avoid this for my mother? (Pony no chance). Our Srinagar hired vehicle can't drop at least the old lady near Gondala?
