    My wife, mitzi and I spent a week at the Himalaya House a few years ago-it was an incredible experience.we were treated as family by you and your staff-Ramzan took us on some amazing hikes and we were so impressed by the kindness and beauty of the people. my birthday coincided with Ramadan and we had a barbeque and you surprised me with a birthday cake-an unforgettable experience! still hoping we will be able to return –I celebrate my 70th b-day this year in october so who knows-a short trek with Ramzan would be difficult to beat.was thinking of you and your staff and just wanted to reconnect. we both send our love, bob lange Precott,Arizona USA

    My experience in Kashmir was really incredible.I stayed at Himalaya House Pahalgam which was a unique and very special experience.The Hotel itself was warm and comfortable + in a beautiful setting with lovely gardens.
    The staff were so friendly and always attentive,I always felt comfortable and like i was at my own home.
    Pahalgam is a beautiful town set in an stunning valley surrounded by mountains.
    I found the whole of Kashmir very tranquil and friendly with absolutely No Problems with police presence but all the Kashmir just go about their lives with no sense or aggravation which i thought was pretty amazing.

    Description: the place is ideally located with the lidder river running past it in the front. the hotel building is from early 70s - the rooms are varied, the furnishings are comfortable , some rooms are unsuited.
    Brown Palace, in Pahalgam, is not a Hotel or Lodge. It is a home away from home for the hundreds of trekking enthusiasts that visit it. We specialize in simple home cooked meals, both western and Indian, and have every modern amenity including hot showers, clean cozy rooms with great views, and a quiet location 15 minutes walk from the city.
    the owner is an organizer of treks in the region - very friendly, as are all the staff there

    Kashmir is known not only for its natural beauty but a number of other things also. One of them is adventure tourism. In fact, adventure tourism in Kashmir is one of the major draws for the tourists. An array of options exists in the valley for the adventure loving visitors. Some of the places in the valley where the adventure sports facilities are available are Gulmarg, Sonmarg, Pahalgam, Drass, etc. The mountain ranges as well as the gushing rivers of the valley provide abundant opportunities for adventure tourism in Kashmir.

    The challenge of the turbulent rivers is no less than that of the rugged mountains. The icy heights of the Himalayas are the source of some of India's mighty rivers. Fed by innumerable streams they race along tortuous boulder strewn beds, cutting deep gorges and breaking into silvery white rapids.

    With the intricate network of mountain rivers flowing through a myriad of different colours of rocky gorges, forests, flowers and high mountain villages, the Lidder River Pahalgam provide ideal locales for the perfect water adventure.

    The sport of white water river rafting calls for a triumph over the swift swirling river as it gushes past spectacular mountains. It is practised mainly in the upper reaches where the water is wild and white as it frothes and foams, crashing against narrow gorges, rocky outcrops and falls at deep gradients.

    As with trekking, mountaineering and other sports, river rafting too has been classified and graded in terms of degrees of difficulty. The suitable period for river running depends on the adequacy of water volume. Thus April to September are most appropriate.

    Equipment: The equipment required is ordinary outdoor gear, goggles, antiseptic cream and a liking for getting wet
