It is not a destination for beginners, but Kashmir offers adventure skiing on untouched and undiscovered slopes.
The resort of Gulmarg is Kashmir's ski hub and has the world's highest gondola, taking skiers up to heights of 13,400ft (4,084m).
Kashmir's un-groomed slopes do not have the same polish and infrastructure as most well known resorts in other parts of the world, but Asia travel specialists Ampersand Travel say, "it is a wild mountain of extreme beauty in the land of snow leopards, monkeys and eagles".
Ampersand Travel runs a 9-night 'Unknown Kashmir Ski' package.
