“Recommended place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 April 2014

This beautiful house has very spacious rooms with clean bathrooms.
The house owner, Manzoor, cooked for us every night and it was delicious local food. The same about breakfast. He'll help you to organize visits to the city center of Srinagar, with taxi and guide, and also for tours into the mountains, all according to your wishes and budget. He also picked us up at the bus stop and brought us back at the end of our stay. He also helped us to buy bus tickets.

We (group of 4 friends) stayed about a week in his house, it felt like being home. We did a two day hike into the mountains where we sleeped one night in tents. Manzoor arranged for us a guide and a cook to come with us, as well as ponies to carry our bags and the tents. The cook made delicious food! They were all very friendly.

I can recommend this place, for every budget, since Manzoor will help you to adapt the trips to your budget.

Room Tip: All the rooms are quite and very spacious.

We, me and my girlfriend, had a great time staying at the snow leopard lodge!
The lodge lies 20 km outside Srinagar and has some beautiful modern rooms. We arrived without reservation but this was no problem.
The house has I nice garden where there are a lot of beautiful flowers and fruittrees. The time we came the peaches were ready so we enjoyed fresh peaches every day! Manzoor is truely a great host and cooks breakfast, lunch and dinner himself for all of his guests. He even gave us a cooking-class: we learnt how to cook 'chicken-curry-in-a-hurry' and other Indian dishes.

We stayed 5 days. One day we did some sightseeing in Srinagar (might be a bit short but we saw the main things in the city). On the other 4 days we went on a hiking trip. This was absolutely fantastic: we went with a group of six (us two and four others, guide/cook/pony-boy) and two ponies into the mountains. There we slept in tents and the cook made us dinner every night. The nature out there was really nice and everything was very well arranged. This was all done by Manzoor who nows everything about the area. The people he hires are people from the area and were all very experienced. Since we are students he made a good price for all of this.

We had a fantastic time staying at the snowleopard lodge and I can recommend this for everybody who wants to visit Srinagar and do some hiking in the mountains. If I can I will definitely come back for a longer trip in the mountains.
