Situated at an elevation of 8,825 ft in the majestic Himalayas, The Khyber, Himalayan Resort & Spa, Gulmarg’s first luxury resort, is set to open in December this year ahead of the Ski Season. Spread over seven acres amidst a dense cover of conifer, pine and deodhar, this 85-room resort, clad in wood and stone, offers spectacular views of the snow capped Affarwat peaks of the Pir Panjal range of the Himalayas.
The awe-inspiring location of the resort promises a memorable experience and will tempt guests to return again and again. The resort is an easy walk from the world-famous Gulmarg Gondola, the highest ski lift in the world. The Gondola takes over 600 visitors and skiers per day to Kongdoori Mountain on the shoulder of Mount Affarwat, the highest ski point in the Himalayas at 13,780 feet.
“The Khyber will be the first major high-end address in Gulmarg and a great deal of attention to detail has gone in to creating this luxury resort”, said Umar Tramboo, MD, Pinnacle Resorts Pvt Ltd and promoters of The Khyber. “Guests at the resort will experience luxury on par with international standards and personalised service hitherto unavailable in Gulmarg,” he added.
