Glad that I chose Gurkha H.B for my stay in Srinagar . I had 5 nights stay in Srinagar and initially I was hesitant to spent even a single night in Houseboat as I had a 4 year old kid with me and the ones I saw in Dal Lake were not upto the mark. Luckily I booked Gurkha after... More

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
