The staff were always attentive to our needs, ensuring that we were warm, well-fed and happy. The winter team invited us into their winter room where they relax (we felt so privileged to experience that hospitality!). Some of the team chatted, while a few played a game of cards with us. It was a lovely, memorable experience for us. The head cook is amazing too – he’s able to whip up amazing meals of international cuisines. Special kudos to him! We were really impressed when I returned from the Kalash valleys ill and barely able to keep any food down. He made Chinese-style chicken broth with boiled white rice, so entirely unlike Pakistani food and 100% authentic we were stunned. I credit the cook for my speedy recovery after that.
