A picturesque water body at the foot of the twin Apharwat Peaks, Alpather Lake is a stunning natural attraction. Embraced by rocky mountains and endless meadows that are covered with wildflowers, this lake is doubtlessly, every nature photographer's delight. Owing to the breathtaking topography, the lakeside has become a favourite picnic spot for the locals as well as tourists. During winters, the lake remains frozen, and the surrounding fields get laden with snow. Approximately 13 km from Gulmarg, this enchanting location is truly a wonderful place to get lost in.

From Gulmarg, you can reach the lake on a horseback through a well-graded track. The horse ride through snowy trails is in itself alluring enough to make you come again and re-visit.
