Location is very good and you can see a lot of eagles and mountains. Food was delicious and traditional. The staff is like family here and you feel yourself very welcome. There are beautiful places near like Naranag and Gulmarg. I did also amazing trekking in Naranag.

“a great destination, fantastic houseboat”

having spent almost 2 months here i feel iam in a position to post a review on Srinagra
and my accomodation.
Srinigra is the jewel of north India
but due to what i feel was over stated media reports has felt a disappointing
start to the season i have in no way been effected by a slight rise in the lake
which is now falling .the boat im staying on the Lalarukh one of a group of houseboats
has been a pleasure to stay on with clean bathrooms and pure Kashmir decor. All the staff and owners are friendly offering a number of activities trecks ,fishing,mountain day trips and can also arrange transport,. lodging in Leh crossing the famous Zojila pass
the food [part of my stay] has been traditional clean and healthy no Dheli belly here
so now Srinagra awaits to be dicovered or rediscovered the friendliness and wonderful
views will not disapoint

We spent a wonderful week on Dal Lake with our hosts from Lala Rukh houseboat. Despite difficult weather conditions, it was the warmest time we had in India. People there are really kind and helpful. The place has its incomparable charm, created by its location and also by the stylish interior. The atmosphere is truly home-like as well as the food. Hope to return there some day for sure!!!

“EXCELLENT, OUTSTANDING....HIGHLY RECOMMENDED”

At the onset I would like to thank Mr. Suhail Ahmad for organizing my Kashmir visit and made it so enchanting.

It was for this excellent tour plan that I witnessed “Heaven On Earth”

Now coming to the stay for three nights in Lala Rukh houseboat. It’s simply superb. The rooms, ambience, view all are excellent and outstanding. The hospitality offered by Mr. Ahmad was overwhelming. The whole experience left me speechless.

Over and above these was the excellent care taken by Abdul Bhai and the food he prepared for us….mouth-watering. We felt at home when we were there. He took very good care of us.

Also the Scorpio which was with us and the man who drove it…Jan Mohammad….a gem of a person and his father-like presence was the icing on the cake.

I thank you all from the core of my heart and promise to stay with you and associate with you whenever I am in Kashmir and I highly recommend to all.

When in Kashmir stay with Lala Rukh houseboat and enjoy the warmth and hospitality and allow Mr. Suhail to arrange for your visit to other places also.

If you do not then you will miss one of the most fascinating and enchanting experience of your life.

Thanking you and sincerely yours,

Pratik Dey

We stayed in this two bedroom houseboat for two nights and we only regretted that why we did not spend another one or two nights here. This has got two bedrooms and believe me if you see the second bedroom, it was just WOW !!!!!!!!! The bed was having unbelievable kashmiri wooden work on it, the bed cover was also with Kashmiri stitch work, similar bathroom and a great food service also. Really we received a great hospitality from them and would love to come back here.
