Everything is perfect: the meals, the location, the service. The view is breathtaking. We knew the director, mr. Rafiq Wangnoo, in his shop, where you can buy carpets, pashmina etc... I will come back to buy the shatush, it's a promise. Thank you for everything.

The houseboat is located on Lake Nagin, the quieter and more peaceful of the lakes. The facilities are idyllic and the food and service impeccable. Shikaras can be organized to visit the villages around the lakes or the fruit and vegetable market in the early morning. Maybe better still, lie out on the deck and read or watch the world... More

Good accommodation, very helpful staff: From Shaukat who professionally and ably supervised our trip, to our server Irfan, and our Driver Tariq, lovely people, who did a lot to make things happen for us. From the Shikara rides to the beautiful destinations within and outside Srinagar, this made a memorable family holiday. Despite the occasional security worries that prove unfounded,... More

I experience staying at Gurkha House boat with my wife the first time & it was in mid days of July. The weather was quite pleasant. As this property was marketed by Heritage Group & they are charging enough for this but its not value for money although just a one time experience. There are 2 lakes in Srinagar Dal... More

Staying at the Gurkha houseboat on the last night of my Kashmir trip was surely an icing on the cake. We had the most amazing time there with great hospitality and serene surroundings of the Nagin lake and the mountains all over. Its got a very peaceful and relaxing ambiance with beautiful vintage interiors. Right from the traditional rugs to... More
