Kashmir Travel

Edit This


The Kashmir valley is gifted with enticing natural beauty of landscape and water bodies.  The most famous of them is Dal Lake. Dal Lake is one the most beautiful and picturesque lakes in India. It is the second largest lake in the State of Jammu and Kashmir. The lake itself is connected to a number of other lakes of the Kashmir valley. It is the Jewel in the crown of the Kashmir and is eulogised by poets and praised abundantly by the tourists. The three sides of the lake are surrounded by majestic mountains and a large number of gardens and orchards have been laid along the shores. The embankments of Dal Lake also house a number of Mughal monuments and the campus of the University of Kashmir. Further beautifying the scenery of the lake are two hillocks that house the famous shrine of Shankaracharya and Hari Parbat temples.

Dal Lake is unique in having hundreds of houseboats. Tourists are attracted to Srinagar by the charm of staying on a houseboat, which provides a unique experience of living on the water. Pleasant sounds of rolling waters welcome you in the morning, as you open your eyes after an all night sleep in your waterborne home. Houseboats form an indelible part of the scenery of the Dal Lake that are always ready to take tourists to a romantic and peaceful ride of the lake and soothe their nerves as the houseboat floats over the slightly rippling waters. They also offer some of the most exotic views of the splendid scenery of the Dal Lake. These houseboats are furnished in a grand style, with carved furniture and woolen carpets with intricate work on them. One can select from the array of houseboats according to one's requirements. Houseboats vary in degree of luxury and have been accordingly graded by the Department of Tourism. A luxury houseboat, like a luxury hotel has fine furniture, good carpets and modern bathroom fittings, while the ‘D category’ (the lowest category) of houseboats, like low-budget hotels, is spartanly furnished. The main idea behind the concept of a houseboat is the fact it provides a haven for those who like to spend a quite holiday, away from the noise and bustle of the cities.
