Kashmir Heliski Multi-Day Packages

Kashmir Heliski offer a range of week long heli skiing trips that vary depending on how hefty your appetite is for untracked lines in the Pir Panjal range of the Himalaya. Choose from just one day of heli skiing mixed in with guided backcountry skiing off the gondola at Gulmarg Ski Resort, up to 54 heli runs across 6 days of heli skiing if you’re just downright greedy for a phenomenal time.

The Kashmir Heliski packages include the guided heli skiing, accommodation at a quality Gulmarg hotel, most meals, all ground transportation, hosting, and use of powder skis and an avalanche beacon, shovel and probe. They also include guided non-mechanised backcountry skiing or riding, either as back-up for no-fly days (when often it's storm skiing below the Gulmarg Resort and using 4WD vehicles to get back up) or as planned guided days off the gondola for the Pir Panjal and Mt Apharwat packages.

The standard packages are week-long or you have the option to customise your trip if you want to stay longer. This table summarises each of the week-long packages.

The packages include a night on a houseboat on Dal Lake in Srinagar which occurs as a finale to your trip. This is a fascinating and quintessential Srinagar experience, especially if you take a shakara (small boat) tour to explore the lake.

Gulmarg Hotels

You have a choice of three Gulmarg hotels, which have been chosen specifically for their quality. Breakfast and dinner are included at each hotel.

Khyber Resort and Spa

Khyber Himalayan Resort and Spa is the only hotel in Gulmarg rated as 5 star, offering luxury hotel accommodation, a magnificent indoor swimming pool, a day spa for the full pampering experience, and the best restaurant in Gulmarg. There is no bar at the Khyber and alcohol is not served. It is possible to BYO alcohol and drink this in the communal lounge. More information on the Khyber Hotel here.

Hotel Highlands Park

Hotel Highlands Park offers traditional Kashmiri design, plenty of charm without compromising on a deluxe experience, and it has a bar that serves a small range of beer and wine, which is the social hub of Gulmarg. We recommend this hotel for its authentic Kashmiri charm that it offers. More information on Hotel Highlands Park here.

Hotel Rosewood

Hotel Rosewood is ideal for those who want to prioritise the budget for more skiing and snowboarding, whilst still providing a deluxe standard of lodging. It is a reasonably new hotel.
