The weather in Gulmarg today is all kinds of romantic, as this popular skiing destination of India receives its very first snowfall of the year. Kashmir’s high destinations, including Gulmarg and Sonamarg, are covered with sheets of snow, while the lower regions received heavy rainfall. The temperature in Gulmarg is currently at -1 degree celsius.
Snowfall affected Mughal Road, which connects the districts of Poonch and Rajouri in Jammu with Shopian district in South Kashmir. This road was closed for vehicular traffic after the snowfall. However, the important Jammu-Srinagar national highway was open despite rains.
With the first snowfall in Kashmir, the question stays as to whether it is going to be tourist-friendly in the coming days.
