Srinagar personifies the quintessential charm of Houseboats on the Dal Lake, Nagin Lake and Nasim Lake. A stay at one of these serenading Houseboats in Srinagar can leave you extending your stay in this paradise-like tourist destination in India. Houseboats are the attraction of Srinagar. They are equipped with two, three, or four bedrooms with an attached bath, a dining and sitting space that opens out to a sun-deck area. The best way to explore this region are lapping journeys on a Shikara across these lakes and past floating gardens.
Blessed with a pleasant climate, Srinagar is aptly referred to as the summer capital of Jammu and Kashmir in India. It nestles in the Vale of Kashmir set amid mesmerizing mountain ranges and mystical, pristine, clear sky-blue lakes. The city is placed both banks of River Jhelum which is a tributary of River Indus. It is famous for its houseboats fringed along the pristine Dal Lake and is well-known for its traditional Kashmiri handicrafts and crunchy dry fruits. Located just 876 km north of Delhi, Srinagar is well connected via road, airport and rail link network. On the outskirts of the city is the beautiful Shalimar Gardens which was laid out by Mughal Emperor Jehangir in 1619. In close proximity are the Chasma Shahi or the ‘Royal Fountains’ garden, Nishat Bagh or the ‘garden of spring’, Pari Mahal, and the Nasim Bagh.
