Apart from Shigar Fort's breathtaking location, demonstration of Kashmiri and Balti craftsmanship with historical importance, its garden is now full of sweet cherries, homegrown salad and other veggies, of which the potatoes are used for the most tasty french fries I had for a long time.

We stayed for a day at shigar fort. Wished to stay longer. Place is excellent with beautiful garden views. Fort rooms is also historically maintained with amazing view out side. Food is excellent and staff including madam serwat and zaheer were very cooperative and caring.

Beautiful place to stay with friendly staff and good service. Hotel is stuated close to town as well and one can have a easy walk to local attractions. Rooms in the old fort are exceptionally redone and provides serene environment. Highly recommended place to loose yourself out of city life and connect to nature.

Team is flexible for changes also there was a bit of... More
