The Owner and the family are really nice and friendly. The hospitality is excellent! The home made foods are fresh and delicious. The place and the view is amazing. We are glad to see this place. We will come back in the future for sure, as many other guests do. The owner can arrange anything (trips to the mountains, food, shopping) as you wish. The houseboat is a unique thing, that you should try.
The Hose boat is in front line and central location: easy to get in and out and safe.
I had the last room: big room in colonial style with one double bad and one single.
Bathroom is small but effective,but bit low stream in shower.Hot water available 24 hrs.
WiFi signal is strong when there is no electricity issue in Srinagar city.
The handsome owner, Mr. Gulam preparing very tasty food and serve tea and coffee.
He could help and arrange mountain trekking and all support you are asking for.
I find the service excellent. We appreciate a lot hospitality and friendly atmosphere. And we are grateful to the owner of the houseboats who is very helpful, honest and cares a lot about the guests. The place is wonderful, on the lake, in the nature, with mountain view... The home made food is fantastic! We are very happy to stay here and we will be more happy to come again... :)
The White Horse and Highland Houseboats, Srinagar, Kashmir
The White Horse and its neighbor, the Highland are two elegant houseboats on beautiful Dal Lake in Srinagar, Kashmir. It is the middle of January and it is cold to be on a houseboat. It is cold everywhere. But not to worry. Gulam Nabi Gagroo, the gracious owner of both the White Horse and the Highland, has given us Khaftans to wear, both inside the houseboat and out. All Kashmiris seem to wear them. I wear mine over my down jacket. We just bought cashmere sweaters from one of the many peddlers who come to the houseboats selling their wares. The added warmth will be most welcome.
We are rowed ashore by one of the houseboys. Gulam has a driver waiting for us and we all go to the mountains. At noontime we sit by a river and eat the sandwiches our houseboat cook has prepared for us. It is a marvelously happy experience!
Every evening one of the two houseboy lights a fire in our woodstove and brings us hot water bottles to warm our beds. In the morning he comes in and lights the stove again and brings us Kashmir tea. When we finally get up the stamina to get out of our bed, into the warm shower and into our clothes, we are treated to a wonderful breakfast of toast, jam and porridge.
Srinagar is at the foot of the Himalayas and is surrounded by mountain peaks, some snow-covered, some in the clouds. It must be absolutely stunning in warmer months, as the ancient Moghul gardens are in full bloom and saffron and herb fields that dot the landscape are ripe. And, of course, Dal Lake must be at its absolute best then, and life in the exotic White Horse and the Highland must be at its very best. Still, though, if you want to be pampered by Gulam and his lovely family and staff, you cant beat winter in one of their wonderful houseboats.
