We were a group of 12 friends, and for many of us, it was out first time in Kashmir. Riyaz Bhai and Ashraf Bhai made us feel like we were staying at our favourite uncle's place. They were so welcoming and warm. Riyaz Bhai even helped us plan an excursion to Sonamarg and book transportation for the whole trip. The location is fantastic, away from the hustle and bustle of the more commercial Dal Lake. Would highly recommend taking the 2 hour shikara ride from Nigeen Lake to Dal Lake as well. Also, the food was amazing! Will never forget the mutton curry with Lotus stem!

Had the best experience at insha allah boat house. It is a very budget friendly place, with a vintage touch to it. The owner, Mr Riyaz makes sure that the guests feel at home and is always available for everything. Dinners are amazing at insha allah boat house. We had a group of 10 people and it was the best experience we ever had. Even in extreme weather, Mr Riyaz made sure that we were warm and nice in the boat house. I will recommend everyone to visit this place.
