The boat itself was charming, and a bit like stepping back in time to a different age, only there was fast WiFi available! The boat is... More

We stayed for 4 nights and we were very happy with the hospitality and food. The staffs and family were very helpful. The Shelter Group of Houseboats is on the river, it is not on Dal lake but we can walk to the market and museum nearby. The tour they provide was very interesting and there were no hidden extras...

This set the tone for the level of service provided by the family, which is what was so memorable about our Kashmiri trip. Nothing was too much for the... More
