Tourists are attracted to Srinagar by the charm of staying on a houseboat, which provides the unique experience of living on the water in a cedar-paneled elegant bedroom, with all the conveniences of a luxury hotel. Srinagar's thousand or so houseboats are moored along sections of the Dal and Nagin Lakes and the Jhelum River, each decorated fancifully and named romantically and even whimsically.

Morning Star floats at vantage location which experiences shikaras visiting the houseboat to offer daily needs and delicacies, almost all day long.
The owner and his family cook sumptuous Kashmiri food and offer unparalleled hospitality. It's a sheer delight especially for Wazwaan lovers.

This was my fourth visit to the paradise on earth and it was spellbinding. We stayed at the Young Morning Star House boat. Shabirbhai and his team provided us with one of the great experience of friendly and hearty hospitality. The house boat was well maintained, clean and comfortable. Food, both Vegetarian and Non Vegetarian, was well assorted, delicious and hygienic.

The amenities were very good and we highly recommend the services of Shabirbhai's house boat.

Go for it without any doubt.

The first time I stayed at Young Morning Star was in 1999 and now almost 20 years later, I still stay there everytime i visit Kashmir. Shabbir uncle and family are AMAZING HOSTS. If ever you want to stay at Dal lake, book your stay here. They have treated me like a daughter and it's safe for solo trips as well.

The food is YUMMMMM! the houseboat is cozy with a super comfy Bukhara right in the living-dining room. Your wish is their command- such is Shabbir uncle's hospitality.

If you haven't stayed here, you are definitely missing on something.

Ket me avail of this opportunity to thank Mr. Shabbir and his staff enormously for our memorable trip to Srinagar in perticular and Kashmir valley in general. The memories will be cherished for ever. At his houseboat we really were made more than comfortable in every sense (hospitality,food, ambience ) and his guidance and assistance can be considered as extra miles . I must say we never felt we were customers, instead it was a feeling like guidence and assistance offered by an experienced family member who would take care of us in every mood.

The best of the hospitality arrangement done by Shabbir Bhai, what a Gem of the person he is!

We stayed 2 nights in his Houseboat which is well maintained and gives luxury comfort, houseboat caretaker Kaka is very polite and generous, houseboat chefs is awesome... served local delicacy, other staff too very prompt in their services.

In addition to this, in my 6N7D package Shabbir Bhai managed to cover all possible destinations with excellent property stay at Gulmarg, Pahalgam and in Srinagar as well.

The driver Basit who was with me for a week was very generous and polite, shared all Dos and Don'ts before reaching to any of the points so that we can make wise choices for opting any activity.

My family (Wife and Son) enjoyed this Kashmir trip which will be memorable for us.

I recommend to experience Kashmir through Shabbir Bhai and I wish all the very best to him and his staff ...God Bless Them 🙏

This was our first houseboat experience and we as family loved it. The houseboat was very cosy and the interiors rich. Shabirbhai was our point of contact and he was available throughout in person in houseboat and on calls for the rest of our tour. The warmth with which our welcome drink ‘Kahwa’ was served was much appreciated. The room was spacious and clean. Munir was helpful for all little things we asked for and served delicious food during the stay. I would recommend this houseboat experience to everyone.

Big thanks to Shabbir bhai for making our Kashmir trip truly incredible & memorable.

Right from houseboat booking to ensuring timely support on each & every step in Kashmir.
Shabbir bhai has good network & team to help you plan your entire trip seamlessly.

Our houseboat stay was very cozy & comfortable & on final day we even cooked our dinner along with delicious Kashmiri delicacies.

A nice and very cozy houseboat at Dal lake. They picked us from the ghat in a boat and led us to this beautiful house boat. Very nice decor inside the boat including the sitting and room area. The owner Shabbir Uncle is very helpful, welcoming and even guided us to plan our trip better. They also arranged the shikara for the ride and also arranged taxi for our overall travel. Food was super delicious and felt like home cooked. Whenever you are visiting this houseboat make sure to have their breakfast and dinner.

Overall, we had a delightful and memorial stay at Young Morning houseboat.

Went with family and Shabeer bhai was very accomodating and came to check up on us every night and even told us some of his amazing stories he’s experienced throughout his life and his time in Kashmir.

Service was amazing and the food was brilliant, amazing variety.
And the view from the house boat is beautiful.
From the shikara ride to the surrounding landscape of Kashmir, everything is a once in a lifetime experience and a must visit vacation spot whether it’s with family or friends.

The host was very welcoming, all the staff and the host always said this one line - Son, feel like home here.
It's a super deluxe houseboat with beautiful interiors. Your choice of food is served. They customise your stay hence, recommend it for the vegetarians. They also have different kitchens for vegetarians. Hence, you can visit it without having to worry about the food.
Definitely a must stay if going to Srinagar.
