    Perched on a secluded ridge high above the calm waters of Dal Lake with the rugged backdrop of the Zabarwan Hills, Qayaam Gah is a place to slow down and tune out of the modern world and immerse yourself in peace and tranquillity with breathtaking views of the majestic beauty of the Vale of Kashmir. Qayaam Gah Hotel lies 20km or 30 minutes from Srinagar Airport and close to Srinagar Old City, Mughal Gardens, and Royal Spring Gold Course.

    Guests here can stay in style and comfort in one of the four luxury villas or three suites tucked away among the orchids and terraced fields. Relax into lazy days of sipping steaming saffron-infused Kashmiri tea while feasting your eyes on the mesmerizing vista of life on Dal Lake below. Watch shikaras drifting between houseboats, stilted lakeside hamlets, and floating gardens while the shimmering image of Hazat Bal Shrine is reflected in the water like a mirage. Take leisurely strolls on mountain paths to spectacular viewpoints and local villages for a taste of the timeless rhythms of traditional rural Kashmiri life. Trek over the hills of the great Zabarwan range to the Dachigam National Park, where Himalayan Black Bears and the Hangul Kashmiri Stag roam, a delight for birders. And visit nearby ornate Mughal Gardens and atmospheric historic heritage sites steeped in history.

    Seamlessly integrated into their surroundings, each of Qayaam’s oversized pavilions offers blissful seclusion, blended with a perfect balance of indoor/outdoor.

    At the heart of Qayaam Gah sits the Ruh restaurant, living space, and library combining Kashmiri design, culture, and cuisine to create a relaxed, stylish indoor-outdoor haven with uninterrupted 360-degree views of the soaring Zabarwan Mountains and mirror-smooth Dal Lake far below. The innovative menu is focused on authentic local flavors and internationally inspired fusion dishes designed to delight and excite all tastes. Share an afternoon high tea here in dappled sunshine, or enjoy a sundowner as dusk descends, or for something even more special, try a private moon-lit dinner here with mood lighting and live music.

    The winner and their guest will be staying in one of the three suites offering spectacular views from their king-size beds, a sitting and study area, and generous verandas.
