1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

It was all memorable and exciting. Shopping in Leh, the floating market on Dal Lake, the mountain passes, our stay on the houseboat . . . . . all thrilling and wonderful.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Just book it! Buy a bottle of gin from Duty Free in Britain to take with you; our house boat stocked the tonic but we were able to improvise elsewhere with Sprite etc. And carry a traditional hand-held fan because it can become rather airless in the monasteries.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes, we contributed to the local economy through our purchases and tips and we took positive action to support the move to rid the area of plastics and polystyrene.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Fantastic. This was the second time I have visited Ladakh and my third visit to Kashmir and stay on Dal Lake. And I hope to stay again on Dal Lake in five years time with family and friends to celebrate my 80th birthday. Doesn't that say it all??
