I wish we had spent longer than two nights at Sarai Silk Route during our ten day trip thru northern Pakistan. The mountains are absolutely captivating and Sarai Silk Route is such a lovely place to sit and soak it in. The owner was so lovely, we felt like a guest in his home but with lots of privacy. The two dinners we had were my favorite meals of the trip. This is such a special place, I can’t wait to return and hopefully see some elk. Bonus points for the bath tub!!
My family and I had been planning a trip to northern areas for the longest time and finally we were able to visit this summer. Our lodging was at Sarai Silk Route and what a cozy, artistically designed cottages. The hotel is surrounded by scenic mountains. Meherban Sb gives wonderful tips about the nearby places. The hotel staff is very hospitable, rooms clean and well-kept. Highly recommended stay at Sarai for the comfort that they provide and beautiful view of Passu cones ☺️
Amazing stay, highly recommended! This was our second trip to the region and having stayed in many guesthouses, this was one if not of the best! Stable hot water 24/7 (which is sometimes hard to come by in remote mountain regions), a comfortable bed and cozy room, and an amazing view of the Passu cathedral right from the room. Mr Karim is also a warm and great host - he went out of his way to show us his cherry orchard, and drove us to Gilgit Airport 3hrs away in the wee hours of the morning. Wish we had more nights here!
I did stay nights in Sarai silk route hotel , great hotel . Stunting views on the mountains. Mister Karim is very helpful hé organize trip to Shimshal. 4x 4 Toyota. Safe trip good driver . Hotel has nice food clean rooms and nice staff . I will comeback in this hotel !
I found this hotel on my map looking for an overnight stop on our way to Shimshal. Half an hour after we arrived we felt like in heaven. Beautiful surrounding, great views, lovely interior, friendly service, good maintenance, tasty food and a charming owner. Well we dropped in three times…
We were a group of 8 friends visiting the Gilgit-Baltistan region for 2 weeks in November 2021 and spent 2 nights at this great hotel. Despite it was a short stay we had a wonderful time here. The service was extraordinary, excellent cuisine, friendly staff. The owner, Meherban is a great host, he even organised a Hunza dance night for our group. He always had time for us. The hotel is build the traditional hunza way and has all the comfort one needs. The rooms ar spacious, clean, comfortable beds. The bed warmer/heater was a nice surprise and very welcome in november :-) Super hot water in the shower! The area is beautiful, surrounded by majestic mountain peaks, the Passu glacier and the Passu cones.
the sarai silk route is a nice place to stay a night or two. good rooms, fine food and a nice owner.it makes a stay in this remote area unforgettable. nice terrace in front of your room. hot water is ready if you tell the owner.
We stayed in Sarai Passu for 1 night in July and it was an amazing experience. The owner and staff are super welcoming and helpful. The rooms are so comfy and clean. we loved the food, had our breakfast in the lawn with a beautiful view of Passu Cathedrals. Went for a short hike to Passu Glacier, which is 1.5 hrs from the hotel. Overall our experience was good and we would like to visit this place again and explore more.
The hotel has good location however it needs lot of improvement compare to the price they charge. Doors were faulty. Bathrooms weren’t clean. Restaurant doesn’t offer very good food, however staff is very courteous. There’s a restaurant right in front of this hotel called Yak Grill. One can go and try the chili yak meet.
We visited Hunza in July and out of all the places we stayed at , we found Hotel Sarai to be the best in terms of its location , service and hospitality. The owner Mr.Meherban went out of his way to help and guide us throughout our stay. He recommended great places to eat at and precautions to take . It’s heart warming to see the kind of genuine effort he puts in making sure all his visitors are comfortable . His staff likewise were accommodating to all my requests as I had small children with me . I was especially enthralled by the excellent internet connection they had . Away from the hustle and bustle and providing an uninterrupted view I loved every minute of my stay there .
