New Buckingham Palace Houseboat is awesome! Captain Hameed takes great care of his guests and is a very knowledgeable tour guide. He was nice enough to give me the superior room for a deluxe room rate. If you are looking for an authentic Kashmiri experience and great hospitality, I would highly recommend. The location of this houseboat is also optimal as it is situated on Nagin Lake.
-if time permits, visit Sonamarg- offers great trekking and views of the Himalayas
*If visiting during winter season, bring warm clothes as the nights can get quite cold
