Got this houseboat booked for 1 night from MMT and honestly its one of the best house boats in SriNagar in Dal Lake. Personally owned by Film Actress Deepti Naval, this boat is managed by Mr.Bakhtoo and he ensures that the guests feel at home throughout their stay here. I am definitely coming back here.
