The Concept Of Igloo Shaped Cafe In Gulmarg

Green Heights Hotel In Gulmarg

The first igloo cafe located in Gulmarg Kashmir was the brilliant idea of Syed Waseem Shah, the owner of the igloo cafe and the manager of the Kolahoi Green Group of hotels and resorts. Waseem wanted to construct his house amidst the heavy snowfall in Srinagar. So when this idea came about, he explored the internet to build the snow cafe and started his work on it outside his hotel, Kolahoi Green Heights Hotel. 

He named the cafe “Snowglu” and opened it publicly on 5th February 2022. And as he expected, it became a massive hit among the locals as well as the tourists thronging the resort on their Kashmir trip from Srinagar.

He first saw this concept in Zermatt, Switzerland, in 2017, where people dined and slept in the igloo. So, in 2021, he brought this concept home to India and started building Asia’s largest igloo cafe. But, little did he know, he made the world’s largest igloo cafe with a diameter of 44.50 ft and a height of 37.50 ft. At the same time, the original snow cafe of Switzerland, which is listed in the Guinness Book of World Records, Is 33.80 ft high and has a 42.49 ft diameter.
