Raikot Sarai, Fairy Meadows
Our rating: Simple | Property style: Guesthouse
At an altitude of 3306m, the Raikot Sarai is your ultimate mountain escape within the forested Fairy Meadows in Gilgit, Pakistan. Popular amongst hikers, from the accommodation go in search of the Raikot Glacier or the Nanga Prabat. The two brothers who own the resort have been welcoming guests since 1992 and they have set the path for responsible tourism within the region. Stay within a basic cabin or tent overlooking the ‘Killer Mountain’. The Bhul Café, named after the first mountaineer to summit Nanaga Prabat, serves limited local cuisine, and the Khushbek lounge serves the same, complete with sheesha. The accommodation may be very basic but the peaceful mountain location more than makes up for it. For those not wanting to walk, horse-riding and polo can be arranged from the accommodation.
