Apharwat Peak is a summit, situated at a height of 4,390 metres (14,403 ft) above the sea level,[1] in Gulmarg. It receives heavy snowfall and remains covered with snow for much of the year. The Line of Control (LOC) is barely a few kilometres away from here. Lying in the second phase of the cable car ride from Gulmarg, reaching this spot is highly dependent on the weather conditions.
