Surrounded by hills from all the side, this bio reserve is a great travel destination in Gulmarg... If someone travel in springs and summers, they can get a view of the variety of tulips that are grown at this place... Overall a must visit place...

Only in name is this a biosphere but there is frankly not much to see here. I really think that this is a bit of a tourist trap and can be avoided as frankly there isn’t much to see here. It is just really snowy and although our guide said that we can get lucky and see a snow leopard... More

In my personal opinion, there are other attractions in gulmarg which are way better than this. Visit this place only if you're staying in gulmarg for more than a couple of days.

Except for the hotel dense patch, the Biosphere looks and feels good. I was fortunate to live on the edge of the forest and the meadows were big with fifty shades of green inviting long walks. Spotted some rose finches...

How can a biosphere reserve create so much garbage around it? So typical of us Indians...keep our house clean and throw all the rubbish on to the streets. The concept is good, the place was a bit overcrowded with people as well as with flora and fauna but it was disgusting to see so much rubbish strewn all across the... More
