Beautiful houseboat in Nigeen lake. Nice and well maintained rooms. Beautifully carved woodwork a beauty. Food was homely and made to your requirements, fresh. The manager and caretaker friendly, but not interfering sort.... People come to sell artifacts... Not pushy and rude... If you do not want to buy, they leave politely. Great place to relax for couple of days.... More

Everyone who's been to Srinagar warned us that houseboats are a waste of time since they're usually old, dirty, poorly-maintained, and have sub-par service. Thankfully Gurkha houseboats was nothing like that. The boat was well-maintained and richly-decorated in traditional style, wifi strength was excellent through-out the boat, the local cuisine was delicious, and the caretaker ensured our stay was very...

A clean and nice houseboat, with good food of choice and ground could be reached any time as one side is touching the lake end. View is excellent from the boat of mountains far away and also nearby. Service was very good and the in house showroom was quite loaded with variety of shawls covers and carpets.

This trip is wonderful and a must if you are visiting Kerela. Food, Service, Sights and Sounds all Excellent. Canoe trip round Munro Island should also be done - take some extra roupees for tea, coconuts and tips.
