We have stayed in the deluxe rooms of JKTDC’s Hotel Alpine (tourist bungalow) during our Kashmir trip in April. When I planned our trip a few friends including my wife was very much against this place and not willing to stay at this place. This place is not well known to the travellers and everyone thinks this will not be a safe place for night stay. But, I was committed to stay here for at least one night. I had book the rooms well in advance. I was in Pahalgam and started around 8am for Kokernag. We have a packed day programme like Daksum (for wildlife sanctuary, stream, Sheep Breeding farm), Kokernag spring- Mughal Garden-Trout Fishery, Achabal-Mughal gardens, Sinthan top etc. But from the early morning heavy rain started and we all were very depressed. Due to rain could not able to enter Achabal Garden. Talked to one JKTDC’s officer at Achabal and as suggested by him we were cancelled all our plans and decided to go directly to JKTDC’s hut at Kokernag. In the mean while I have received a call from JKTDC's office Kokernag and concerned officer asked us when we will reach and how far we are from Kokernag etc. We simply mesmerized by the hospitality received. On the way to Kokernag snowfall started and when we are entering the kokernag garden (Huts are inside the garden) snow in form of cottons are falling from the sky. What an exhibition of nature!!!!!!!!! We all are amazed and speechless. We were reached our hut through snowfall and mesmerized by the location. What a place!!!! We booked two double bedded rooms and discovered that it was a 2BHK Hut. Every one of us was very happy and praises me for selecting such location. We had received warm welcome from the staff members who were very helpful. The officer again came to our hut and personally asked whether we need anything else or not. It’s really wonderful. Rooms were neat, clean & specious with electric blankets & room heater. Hot water was available in the toilet. The view from the Hut’s veranda was beautiful! Food served to us also very tasty. I will surely recommend this place to the future travellers. After entering in the garden you will find JKTDC's office on the left side where you have to report first.
