Located in calm and picturesque Nigeen lake - far away from crowded, dirty and noisy Dal lake 2. Rooms are good and spacious but do not expect hotel like facility 3. Food is very... More

I must say go for house boat in nagin lake instead of Dal lake. Food is not good but still manageable. Care taker is trying hard to provide all the service and... More

We traveled to Srinagar on September 6, 2014 and but the time we reached Srinagar it was heavily raining. we thought that we could visit at... More

This houseboat is situated in Nagain lake in Srinagar and hence you are out of those city noise.. The shikara sailing from Nagain lake to Dal Lake was awesome. The food was good. The owner has invested a lot by putting best furniture inside the houseboat. This is not expensive and worth trying once.

It is beautiful because the houseboat is... More
