This was our second house boat experience on the Nigeen Lake. Both had their charm and uniqueness. Here Capt Hameed and his family made the difference. Both Nisar and Khaleed took excellent care of us while we were at the house boat for a night stay. We later stayed at Capt's B&B accommodation, which is a little away from the... More
