Each trip is 9 days in total which includes 7 days guided skiing, 7 nights in Gulmarg staying at the Highlands Park Hotel plus 1 night in a houseboat on Dal Lake in Srinagar.
Subject to availability rooms in the Highlands Park Hotel in Gulmarg can be booked on a single occupancy basis. The extra charge for this is £375 for 7 nights.
Spending money in Gulmarg is going to be about £15-20 per day to cover lunch, waters and drinks in the evening although this does depend on your consumption! Lunch is about £5, water is £1.50 and beers in the hotel bar cost about £5 for a litre bottle. If you chose to eat out an evening meal in a restaurant in the town will cost £8-10 plus drinks.
On request the trip can be extended and we can arrange additional excursions and sightseeing including day trips (from Delhi) to Agra and the Taj Mahal or to Jaipur (the pink city).
There are a maximum of 12 places available on each trip.
Flight Information and Delhi Transfers
In 2011 the new terminal was opened at Delhi airport which means that most international and domestic flights now arrive and depart from the same terminal. This makes the transfer between flights much more convenient. However we do still recommend that you allow 3 hours between your international arrival and the connecting flight to Srinagar.
The last flight to Srinagar leaves Delhi at about 1pm which means your international flight should arrive no later than 10am.
From the UK British Airways offers the most convenient connections with 2 non-stop flights daily from Heathrow to Delhi. A number of the Middle Eastern Airlines such as Emirates or Qatar are usually the least expensive option with stopovers in Abu Dhabi or Doha.
Virgin and Air India both have 1 flight each day from Heathrow but both flights arrive after 11am which is too late to make the connecting flight to Srinagar on the same day.
If you need (want) to arrive early and spend the night in Delhi we can arrange accommodation in a local hotel and the cost is £80-100 per person including transfers.
