Gulmarg Mountain Festival to commence in Feb 2020
Although India as a whole isn’t fortunate enough to experience snowfall, a handful of states in the Northside are, and for the first time ever, India would have its very own Snow Adventure & Leisure Sports Festival in Gulmarg, Kashmir. It is going to be the inaugural edition of the Gulmarg Mountain Festival, which will be held from February 13 to 16, 2020.
Organised by Crazy Mad Dogs and curated by Northern Escapes in association with Travel Amazing India and Reach India, the festival will include a number of adventure sports like Snow Car Race, Heli-Skiing, Skiing, Snowboarding, Hot-Air Balloon Rides, Snow Running, Snow Biking and Snow Cycling apart from its main attractions of Snow Golf and Snow Cricket. The event will highlight Kashmir’s mesmerising beauty as well as the adventure & leisure sports which until now, has been under-explored in the country.
With a promise to be fun and exciting, the Festival aims to bring back Kashmir’s tourism and economy, which has been drastically affected by the recent shutdown and the scrapping of Article 370.
Festival Co-Founder, Lieutenant Colonel Bhuwan Khare said, “This one of its kind mountain ecology-based snow sports, adventure & leisure festival has been designed by a team of highly experienced specialists from Indian Army, adventure veterans, seasoned skiers, mountaineers and die-hard explorers. We feel India has a huge untapped potential to create premium level Sustainable Adventure Tourism events and this initiative of ours will be one of the models which will guide others as well”.
