Have you ever tried skiing the Himalayas?
Since December last year this luxury hotel is part of the Small Leading Hotels of the World and for a good reason!
Khyber is located in the skiing destination of Gulmarg in the Pir Panjal range of the Himalayas. It offers 80 guest rooms, 4 luxury cottages and a Presidential Suite, all with breathtaking views over the Affarwat Peaks or the surrounding evergreen valleys. Interiors are designed with traditional materials and draw upon Kashmir’s rich heritage of craftsmanship. From walnut furniture and teakwood flooring to embroidered fabrics and silk carpets. The one and two-bedroom cottages even have their own heated pools.
