Driving along the famous Boulevard that lines the Dal Lake in Srinagar, you will pass the famous Mughal Nishat gardens. Take some bylanes that brings you in close quarters to the locals of the region, to reach a very inviting view of a house set against the mountains. Nasir Ul Haq is a young and spirited host who will welcome you to their homestay.
The 7 bedroom house is modern but designed elegantly to fit into the surroundings. A lawn in the front of the house is great for morning breakfasts while you watch the sun rise up the mountains or have a bonfire dinner at night.
All rooms are ensuite and are comfortable. The room on the 2nd floor of the house comes with a balcony that offers a beautiful view of the Dal Lake. There is a living room that has a Television, a kitchen that you may use to make your own meals or simply have the caretaker dish out your preferences. The dining area is very plush and warm for dinners.
Taxis and sightseeing arrangements are of no worry as Nasir will be with you to help you with anything you need. Nasir's father has artifacts and handicrafts export business so Nasir will be able to guide you with shopping for the beautiful woodwork or the Pashmina shawls that Kashmir is known for.
Treks up the mountains are a great way to spend a day while staying at this homestay and Nasir will be your trek guide. A picnic lunch can be arranged for those who would love to be out the whole day.
Stay at this homestay with your family and experience the exclusivity of having the place all to yourself. Srinagar needs atleast 3 days for itself while there are many day trips one can make around Srinagar. This homestay is perfect for long stays for the creative minds for writing or painting.
