- Taken: 11 April, 2019,
A pack of feral dogs devour the remains of a goat (or sheep?) which had most probably fallen victim to the sudden snowfall.
We took a short excursion to some scenic points near Gulmarg Market to kill time. However our taxi had gotten stuck in the snow. Other drives came down to help push or shovel the snow. When none of that worked, a set of chains for the tyres came out. However, the drive had only one set, so it had to be installed at the worst stuck tyre.
After being snowed in, we were dissuaded from attempting to go up to the Gulmarg ski resort area. But we persisted and went anyway, and this was as far as the road would take us. The road ahead had been blocked by felled trees the night before when the heavy snowfall came. Still, this was better than having given up and stayed back at the hotel.
