Yakub bhai made my trip to Kashmir very relaxed, easy & unforgettable. I did a lot of net surfing and scouting and eventually zeroed in on New Golden Flower on Nagin lake and was impressed by the reviews and warm regards for Yakub bhai by many travellers. He is extremely cooperating, kind, honest family oriented, knowledgeable & experienced guide. He knows exactly how to make you comfortable and happy.
He arranged a trip for me to lake manasbal and it was the most beautiful trip of my life. On his recommendation I tried the Fish Kababs which were out of the world ....... a speciality of this place and only available here.
I am looking forward to visiting Kashmir again with my family very soon and New Golden lower is the ONLY & obvious choice as it's location is apt. Nagin Lake is quite and peaceful and very unlike the and noisy cluttered Dal lake. Yakub bhai's boat is located at the very beginning of the lake and offers a spectacular view of the entire lake.
Yakub bhai...thank you very much for your warm hospatility and company.
