... town is featured by a number of photos in the gallery... We enjoyed our walks around the city and the local area near the houseboat. Our houseboat (the "Lion of Khasmir") was moored on Nagin Lake within the "Wangnoo Resort": Nagin is one of 3 major lakes in the Srinagar area. Some 800 boats are moored "lakeside". Our 3 bedroom abode was ornate. All rooms were large and constructed of heavily traditionally carved walnut timber. The facilities and staff were ...
... the jeep driver came round who would be driving us to the start site. He said he treks aswell, seems odd that he treks but ok. We didn't like him, he sat and starred at us and had an unpleasant feel about him and dark eyes. We began to feel a bit dodgy about the decision we had made to go. In the evening sahid was incredible intense, he was all over the place. He smokes pot but it has an effect on him I have never seen. He switched from topic to topic couldn't focus spoke a lot and ...
... says privately, "I love that guy. Poor ****er has a broken heart." Which brings us to the other side of the equation; we are all two people to him.

We also had saucier mutton based balls called goshtaba in saffron yoghurt curry sauce and tabak maaz which are fried lambs ribs.

Cashmere is not the place to be a vegetarian, there is very little traditionally Cashmiri catering for the other end of the table, poor guys.
... The curries were outstanding. On our last night together we pushed the boat out a bit and went to a posh restaurant - I say we pushed the boat out but the total bill for all 5 of us was less than 25 quid! Then sat on the balcony outside our room and drank whiskey which Andreas and Alex had managed to find!
We had a really awesome few weeks traveling with Nathan, Alex and Andreas and it was a real shame to say goodbye but we were glad to get away from Srinagar!
