The Army rescued five foreign tourists who strayed from their skiing route and lost their way at Gulmarg in north Kashmir.
The Army said five foreigners, including one Dutch, one American and three British tourists, started skiing around 1 pm from Apharwat, Gondola Phase II, and got deviated from the original route.
“They skied and trekked for hours but in the absence of a guide, they got lost and were not able to find their way back to the hotel. After hours of walking, they finally reached near an Army camp at around 9.30 pm. They were totally exhausted. The Army extended every possible help to comfort the guests and they were brought to Gulmarg, where they were served dinner before being escorted back by the hotel staff,” an Army spokesman said.
