My first experience of living in a house boat was a memorable one thanks to Mr Bashir's Peacock Houseboats. We stayed at Houseboat 11 which was ornately decorated on the inside and moored on the scenic serene Nigeen lake. We arrived late in the evening and were received and welcomed by Mr Bashir and with warm cups of Kahwa arranged... More

I visited Srinagar on 19th May and stayed at Peacock Houseboat. The only words I do have to explain my experience is "EXCELLENT".

Thanks Bashirbhai for being a able... More

I was heard that houseboat stink and beds are smelly, so even I was bit reluctant to choose houseboat, but when we enter the Peacock Houseboat it was refreshing. The Wood smell added... More

The best things about peacock houseboats were 1) it is on Nigeen lake which has way fewer houseboats than Dal - which means you actually get a Lake view room instead of a houseboat view room! 2) It is very tastefully furnished and has spacious rooms 3) The bathrooms are spotless and practically new! 4) the entire atmosphere is quiet,...

The shikaras coming to sell their wares... More
