The hse boat has carved wood.Everyone pleasantly surprised when they saw the inside-with all 3/4 bedrooms+ensuites.Its like a complete hse.Dal lake is very beautiful in July/August.the Gardens are beautiful with all types of flowers.The Shiva temple on the hill was a wonderful surprise-the Shikara rides on the lake was so relaxing .we had all meals provided .All Indian curries-We also had 2 White ladies in our group they had special meals provided for them.the hill station .and cable rides was exciting.some of us had pony rides. My first visit was in March 2012 it was winter .cold but exciting to see so much snow-we went up to Gulmarg for rides on the snow. I have been there twice with my group -wil luv to go there every year
My initial booking was for a day in this houseboat. But, after I stepped into this palace, I decided to spend my rest of the days in Srinagar in this houseboat only. The boat has beautiful wooden architecture. Rooms are very spacious (We stayed in the deluxe ones). Deluxe rooms can easily accommodate 3 adults. Kareem Saab the caretaker of the houseboat is very helpful and kind. The view that the houseboat gives of the Dal Lake and the surrounding mountains is simply breathtaking. It did not try the food served in the houseboat but I am sure that would also have been very tasty. I would highly recommend this houseboat to fellow travelers.
houseboat has extraordinary fine carvings all over the place on wood. rooms are very spacious. they provide ghar ka khaana, which is very good. They also help in negotiating prices of shikaaras. only minus point is water is not really that hot in bathrooms.
We enjoyed our Stay on Mother India very much. We stayed for three nights and two days. Houseboatkeeper "Captain Kareem" was really kind and caring. The food was self cooked and tasty. The owner of the Houseboat also sells Carpets and provides Trekkingtours and Fishingtours. He was also kind and showed us the way carpets are made without putting pressure to buy anything. Everything was organised very well - Shikararides, Airporttransfer and every wish was fullfilled - even the wish for jam for breakfast.
ero gia stato altre volte sul Lago Dal a Srinagar, luogo bello dell'India del Nord, che amo: in questo viaggio sono nuovamente stato su una houseboat, con gran piacere nella houseboat denominata Mother India. Dalla barca, con un "chicara" (le piccole imbarcazioni che fanno la spola tra la barca e i "ghat" sulla riva del lago), abbiamo raggiunto la riva orientale e da li abbiamo fatto una visita ai meravigliosi giardini Mugal seicenteschi sulla collina a sud-est del lago. La houseboat e una barca che ha trent'anni, molto confortevole e con personale molto dedicato, sia nell'ospitalita nel bel soggiorno e nella veranda, sia nella sala da pranzo, con pasti deliziosi ed abbondanti.
