Danish Ali along with his mother and grandmother opened this homestay during the lockdown to serve the tourist upsurge in the valley. Danish is a very humble person who is keen on exploring new cultures through his guests. Along with his family, Danish also runs a handicraft store. The family is warm, welcoming and helpful and will do their best to make your stay with them memorable.
The homestay takes great pride in serving fulfilling and lip-smacking homemade food as per guest requests. The hosts specialize in Wazwan which is a traditional multi-course meal in Kashmiri culture. It may include Seekh Kababs, Methi Korma, Rogan Josh, Meatball Yakhni etc., based on their availability. Must try their fragrant Kahwa.
