The Houseboat is a unique experience for being an extensive expanse of water embalmed in mountains reflecting their majestic splendor in the lake water. At the feet of these Mountains lie gardens laid out centuries before the Kings of aesthetic tastes. A life at these Fluting habitats is in contrast to that of the five star hotels. The entire structure is Yours, and at your command, comprising, drawing, dinning, dressing, bed and bath rooms and a deck atop for sunbathing. Food is cooked in one of the kitchen boats and it is brought across to be served to the guests. It is a peaceful. Secluded and unpolluted retreat. A sojourn on HOUSEBOAT is an IDYLL in itself.Our Service?* Best View in Dal Lake* Luxurious Furnished Rooms* Attached bath with running hot and cold water* 24-hour room service* 24-hour attendant in every Houseboat* Air ticket reservations* Day excursion trips* Hotel accommodation* Pilgrimage tours* Trout fishing* Trekking* Laundry Services* Stand-by power generator* Boat ride* Water Trekking* Water Skiing* Canal cruises* Golfing arrangements* Ladakh tours* Study Tours* Specialization in Kashmir & Ladakh Tours.* Sightseeing arrangements

Stayed with family in all 3 rooms. Owner's family was providing all necessary assistance day n night. They were always available on call and also advised about other facilities also. Try to book thru net after searching reviews. BUT BEWARE OF FRAUD TRAVEL AGENTS like FAYAZ of PATTAN who was managing taxi for sight seeing etc for us and always busy in looting us all the times charging twice of normal charges. J&K police does not help you too against such goondas, they too are n nexus. Just rely on your houseboat management. for local help.

To begin with, I booked this houseboat after reading TripAdvisor reviews. I wasn't let down. Mr Khan Kashi and his team of old but trusted lieutenants like Hussian and Old Chacha lived up to every word of their reputation. We felt as if we were at home. The houseboat is in a part of the Dal lake known as Open Dal lake. Since the patio faces west, the sunset views are awesome. The rooms are very clean. Food is lip-smacking. Service is prompt and courteous. Old Chacha served us awesome Kashmiri Kahwa whenever we felt like having it. We will come again and again...
