With the second round of heavy snowfall in Kashmir valley, skiers from around the globe have descended on the ski resort of Gulmarg, known for long-run skiing, snow-boarding, heli-skiing and steep mountains. Gulmarg is located less long-run skiing, snow-boarding, heli-skiing and steep mountains. Gulmarg is located less than India and Pakistan. As a sense of normalcy has started to return to this strife-torn region, various foreign governments, including the United Kingdom, have lifted the travel advisory to its citizens traveling to Kashmir, raising the hopes of the local tourism industry, officials said.
