After Ahmadoo passed in 1972, his three sons, Gulam Mohammed, Gulam Nabi and Abdul Rahman, took over the business which was called “Montana Houseboats”. They also had their share of famous people, especially since the Bollywood movie industry had discovered Kashmir as a good location for their movies. Actors like Prithvi Rajkapoor, Raj Kapoor, Dilip Kumar, Ashabhosle and Mufat Lal stayed at the houseboats.
In 1976, the three brothers started a small travel agency in Kashmir, Mantana Tours and Travels, to provide the growing quantity of Indian tourist a good summer or winter holiday in the mountains. Beside places to stay (in houseboats or elsewere), they offered trips and tours through the mountains and religious trips to the many temples, shrines, nature in the area of Srinagar.
