The picturesque skiing resort of Gulmarg in the Indian held state of Kashmir is virtually empty despite the perfect skiing conditions, February 17, 2002. Gulmarg has often been called the Switzerland of Asia with its faded elegance and top rated skiing conditions but because of the militant insurgancy, its proximity to Pakistan and the risk of being kidnapped, most foreign tourists stopped visiting over ten years ago. Gulmarg is only 15 kilometers from the Line of Control where India and Pakistan have amassed hundreds of thousands of troops poised to begin a fourth war as the tensions over Kashmir escalate.
