Also it's not very crowded like other houseboats at Dal Lake, so you can enjoy a peaceful time along with the... More

Its a place you can't miss. The hospitality of Capt. Hameed and the multi-tasker guide Khalid will make you feel at home. The homely food is nice and delightful too. The houseboat gives you a royal experience at a comfortable price and is ideally located in the serene and peaceful 'Nigeen lake' comfortably away from the city but easily accessible... More

They not only planned... More

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
