Ismail homestay in Turtuk

Postby beginningless » Sat Jun 10, 2017 11:35 am

I stayed at Ismail homestay with a sweet family for a month in Feb/Mar 2017 (before the permit rules changed in April). The host Ismail never let me pay for anything we ate outside. As it was very cold (Feb), they gave a small stove for me to heat the water for the "mattress pad" as and when I want. This is why I prefer homestays for GHs. I had raw milk and natural tasty apricots everyday during my stay.

Hi Guys

I stayed at Ismail Homestay while riding alone two years back. The host and his son were very humble and friendly. You can order anything to eat within his limits there. He also served us his special Kashmiri Kahawa tea. His grandpa makes woolen blankets with a small hand loom which you can buy from there for cheap price. And after all, it is a very special place for me. I found my wife there who was also staying there at that time :-).
