Nice houseboat with 5* Rooms & ambiance, with each room having perfect view of sunrise. Owner was very helpful in all aspects.I would say the service was little slow, but as this was houseboat, not hotel I guess things take time & should be accommodated.

Honestly, I was apprehensive about this trip to Srinagar. Driving all the way around from Manali to Leh...and Leh to Sonamarg.... it was hectic, tiring and with all the media nonsense about the 'political scene' in the Kashmir valley, it did not seem like a good idea. One of my friends suggested we try staying at a houseboat whenever in... More

On several occasions I had the privilege to be host of Ghulam Servar Wangnoo and his family on H/B Khilona, moored on the Western bank of Nageen Lake in Kashmir. I returned there almost every year since 2005, also with my trekking Groups to Ladakh. The feeling there was great. We enjoyed the serene atmosphere and the beauty of the... More
