In detail

The atmosphere at The Khyber Himalayan Resort & Spa changes according to the seasons. From spring through to winter, views from the rooms and cottages encompass carpets of spring flowers to summer sun-filled meadows. Winter highlights the impressive mountain peaks and the inviting powdered ski slopes. Beautiful silk carpets, furnishings embellished with embroidery, carved walnut paneling and teakwood floors reflect Kashmir’s rich heritage.

In winter, head for the highest ski point in the Himalayas or take an adventure trek through snow-clad mountains to Alpather Lake. In spring and summer enjoy a spot of trout fishing, or go mountain biking. There are miles of hiking treks to discover as well as the world’s highest golf course to master. Return each day for tea and cakes, Kashmir style, in The Khyber Himalayan Resort & Spa’s Tea Lounge.
