Located on the outskirts of Srinagar in the rolling Zabarwan mountain range, Qayaam Gah is a wonderful new mountain retreat.  

Sublimely comfortable, intimate, peaceful, stylish and authentic, whilst here one can walk or trek in the hills; take drives through the Dara mountain range; visit Dachigam National Park; picnic in the wilderness; take gentle Shikhara (local boats like gondolas) on glistening Dal Lake seeing the floating markets and lake life; visit the historic old town of Srinagar and the stunning Mughal Gardens; practice yoga on the sun-filled terrace; feast on delicious local and international cuisine; visit Sufi shrines and hilltop temples – the world really is your ‘oyster’ up here where the air is fresh and pure.

There are 4 huge, stunning villas with their own sitting rooms, verandahs and dining areas; along with 3 beautiful, spacious suites. All have incredible views over the lake below or the surrounding mountains.

Public facilities include a heated infinity pool and terrace, restaurant,  library and stunning gardens with an abundance of wildlife. This includes many types of native and migratory birds, shy snow leopards and the winsome sloth bears which come to pick the cherries in springtime.

Come and spend time at this fabulous mountain retreat – the perfect summer holiday destination which combines wonderfully well with time on Sukoon Houseboat on Dal Lake or with a Shakti Himalaya adventure in neighbouring Ladakh.  It is equally cosy and inviting and exciting to visit in winter – perhaps combined with a spot of skiing at the nearby resort of Gulmarg.
