Jammu and Kashmir: Tourists enjoying India's first glass igloo in Gulmarg
Baramulla: Jammu and Kashmir's Gulmarg region is currently witnessing the emergence of a new tourist attraction in the form of a glass igloo restaurant in the middle of the snow-covered mountains, media reports said.
Tourists are visiting the restaurant and enjoying their time in the unique place by either cherishing their food or taking pictures to keep the memories forever.
This unique glass igloo restaurant is developed by Kolahoi Green Heights, a hotel in Gulmarg. The hotel claims it is the first glass igloo restaurant in the valley. It is worth noting that earlier they had built the valley’s first snow-covered restaurant, reports ANI.
According to Hotel Manager Hamid Masoudi, it has always taken unique measures to make Gulmarg attractive to tourists. He said that in 2020, the hotel made the biggest Igloo in Asia, while in 2021, they made the biggest Igloo in the world and this year, they made a glass igloo, which is the first such igloo in Kashmir.
“We took this concept from Finland and built three igloos in the courtyard of our hotel which was not seen anywhere before. Then we also built three igloos at phase one of Gulmarg which are very much appreciated by the visitors here,” Masoudi told ANI.
He further said that imported fabricated material has been used for this unique igloo. This unique glass-fronted restaurant keeps the interior heat insulated as well as offers the best views.
“Eight people can sit in it at a time in each of these glass igloos. We are trying to give a different kind of experience to tourists,” Masoudi added.
