This boat on the peaceful Dal lake was ruined by a bloke called Ali selling overpriced trips to poor unsuspecting backpackers. Ali has a big smile and is one of the best sales people I've ever come across but has a heart of stone. He will empty your pockets dry.

No water in bathroom for two days and no reduction fee for problems encountered! Can't get to dry land without paying via boat. Found bugs in double bed as nothing is cleaned or washed. No choice of food. Tasted like warmed up leftovers. Wifi worked for two of the seven nights stayed. Literally felt like a prison.
