“Beautiful Kashmir”

Thank you Suhail for an amazing stay on your beautiful houseboat in Srinagar.

We loved every minute of our stay. You took care of everything, from the amazing and delicious home-cooked meals, to our excursions and all our transportation! We felt very well taken care of and we didn't need to fret about all the details - you took care of everything!

This is a beautiful part of the country, and well worth a visit. We know some people are concerned about travelling to Jammu and Kashmir because of political unrest, but we never felt concerned, threatened or in any danger. In fact, it was the opposite - everyone was so welcoming! We recommend Lalrukh houseboats for a fantastic stay. Special shout out to Abdullah who treated us so well.

Highly recommend this company for a stay that we will always remember!

“Great travel experience”

The family that I stayed with was wonderful. They cook for you, they drive you to the main sites, and they can arrange for treks as well. If you are coming to see Kashmir, this is the best way to do it. The rooms in the boathouse are quite large, much better than any hostel I had found in Delhi or Kashmir. I had never stayed in a boathouse before this, but it was a really unique experience. Definitely give them a shout if you're heading to Srinagar.

The houseboat with two double bedrooms was marvellous.The view is spectacular looking across a beautiful lake at the the mountains with snow on.The house boats were beautiful to look at and entertaining to learn about.Mr. Suhail goes out of his way to make sure that every guest is getting the most out of their visit to Kashmir. Whether it is arranging cars, tours, meals, or anything you can imagine he does it. Really wonderful experience and can't wait to go back.

We stayed in Lanarkshire houseboat for 2 days. I must say that we had best experience here. The food was great. We were impressed with the cleanliness of the houseboat. The staff was generous. Had fabulous time.

The family at Lalarukh took great care of me whilst I was staying in Srinigar. Breakfast and dinner were served everyday and we were taken care of very well. Highly recommend Srinigar!

“Knocking on heavens door”

I spent 30 Days in Lalarukh Group of Houseboats. Right there on the calm and relaxing Dal Lake i've met a lovely family, a wonderful place and amazing new friends. During a normal day we've just enjoyed the peace in one of the groups houseboat, took a refreshing swim in the Dal Lake, ate Ice Cream at a Shop on the lake which we reached with the famous Shikara, or just having a good time with the family and friends.
We did a 10 day trekking from Gangbal to Sonamarg which i recommend everyone who want to explore a magical experience out in the wild nature.
Beside the trekking experience i've got in touch with the nature, landscapes and sights in Kashmir with small trips to beautiful natural spots, peaceful temples and colorful gardens.
My room in one of the Houseboats was very clean, comfortable and had an own bathroom with shower toilet and warm water. You will find a kingsize bed whit fluffy blankets :) .
Another thing special were all the tasty kashmiri meals we ate all day cooked by the family.

It was an all in one special adventure to stay there in srinagar on this stunning lake. THANK YOU.
