Gulmarg - the highest gondola in the world

One day we decided to go to Gulmarg.  It's a place where you can go skiing in winter and there is even a gondola that goes right up to the top of the mountain.  At 14,000 feet it's the highest gondola in the world!

The gondola is in 2 stages.  Many people go only up as far as the first stage.  Getting tickets for this gondola was quite a challenge.  There was a queue, but various "guides" kept jumping in at the front of the queue.  As we went up to the top we went right through the clouds.  On the other side there was a bright blue sky.  At the top it was very stony.  You could continue to walk up a bit and from the top you could look over into Pakistan.
