What an amazing experience. Beautiful rooms with views of the Nageen Lake and the snow clad Zabarwan mountain peaks. The houseboat is family owned and the personal attention given to us made our stay very special. Kashmiri hospitality at its best. The meals were very good especially the wazwan which was divine. Would highly recommend this houseboat.
