What made our stay (of my sister and me) at the Heaven Breeze houseboat so special were the people that run it, they were very welcoming and warm, like a family.
After a challenging 28-hour bus ride from hectic Delhi, we arrived in a very contrasting world: a delightful houseboat located on the idyllic and very quiet Nageen Lake. It was so peaceful there, seemingly far away from the touristy areas, and yet still pretty close to some major landmarks. The boat also proved to be a great hub for us to leave from on daytrips and on a trek into the mountains.
We also loved the food, delicious Kashmiri meals prepared by the family at the houseboat. The family was also amazing when my sister was sick (on arrival in Srinagar), no effort was too much to get her to recover.
I planned to stay in Kashmir for 2 days and eventually it turned into 15, needless to say I had a great time!
