Kashmir Houseboat
6 Days / 5 Nights
From US$699

A houseboat is a boat that has been designed or modified to be used primarily as a human dwelling. The houseboats are generally made from local cedar-wood and measure 24–38 meters (79–125 ft) in length and 3–6 meters (9.8–20 ft) in width and are graded in a similar fashion to hotels according to level of comfort. Many of them have lavishly furnished rooms, with verandas and a terrace to serve as a sun-deck or to serve evening cocktails. They are mainly moored along the western periphery of the lake, close to the lakeside boulevard in the vicinity of the Dal gate and on small islands in the lake. They are anchored individually, with interconnecting bridges providing access from one boat to the other. The kitchen-boat is annexed to the main houseboat, which also serves as residence of the boat keeper and his family.
