Food was delicious and the view from the lake was nice and beautiful. I went there with my wife and children planned for three nights but it was so good that I extended my stay for five nights. Mr. Shakeel owner of house boat was very helpful.
An excellent place to stay during your visit to Srinagar....excellent service and value for money ...enjoy the evening in the lake and take a boat tour to see the Dal Lake ...the place is well serviced and the proprietors make your stay comfortable.
Staying in a boat house is unique experience and this boat house is well equipped with courteous owner to make the stay memorable. Only a few riders though: Stay in boat house will be less convenient than even a basic hotel but I doubt any house boat can fix this. House boats are probably good only for a night or two of stay. Everyone is courteous but only if they are tipped generously. This is something not found anywhere in India.
There is no poem I could write, Nor picture I could paint that would do justice and truly express how charming this Houseboat on the Dall Lake. Hospitality - I felt like Local while, while felling like a prince. (100%) Location - Far beyond any expectation I held. (100%) Overall - Perfect getaway, for traveling. Clear you Mind, your Body and your Soul. (100%) Thankyou to my Family in Kashmir. You have given me a life changing trip and set me on a better and healthier path. I hope to say in touch but if life gets in the way, then just know that you are all held within my Heart. Thank-you x
Forget all the warnings you might read regarding houseboats! The 15 minunes complimentary shikara ride from gate 15 is beautiful in itself. Whenever we wanted to go out, the manager, John arranged the same guy, we paid extra only the sightseeing shikara tour he took us. Khar Palace is as you can see on the pictures, 2 rooms with private bathrooms, hall and dining room. The floor is cracking as the whole structure is wooden, some parts would need some extra paint and the bathrooms are not like on the mainland, but comfortable enough. The location is peaceful and beautiful and the overall experience is extremely positive. No extra charges or hidden cost just pure kashmiri hospitability. Best home cooked food we had in Kashmir. Our children didnt want to leave and played charambol and went fishing with Rahul, the younger brother of the manager. We could borrow the small boat that the family living behind the tourist houseboat was using and paddle our way around the peaceful area among waterlilies. One or two salesmen visited us but it was not really annoying, they rather join your shikara with their own when you come or go and might put some pressure on you to buy their stuff but leave you quickly if you are not interested. Do not even consider the lousy and expensive hotels in town but head to a houseboat, you can even book by just calling John!
