We were scared to land in Srinagar during the curfew, but the owner of the houseboat gave us confidence to travel there. Our first stop was Srinagar for our Leh trip. It was a well worth it journey. We were greeted by the owner of the houseboat at the Srinagar airport who safely escorted us to the houseboat. We chose...

We had a pleasant stay at the houseboat. The houseboat is run by the family and they make every effort possible to make your stay comfortable. We stayed there for 3 days and we had a complimentary taxi pick up from Airport which is 40 mins away from the houseboat (~800 INR worth). The host organized day trips to Gulmarg,...

We narrowed down on Nigeen Lake after reading about the chaos and pollution on Dal. Frankly we had limited expectations from a houseboat, esp with worries reg hygiene, climate etc with a toddler. But we were in for a pleasant shock in all aspects at Houseboat Lily. Right from the pt we reached: unlike most other houseboats, the entrance to...

We stayed in couple of houseboats. Lily of Nageen was THE BEST boathouse is what I can say. We are vegetarians the day we landed in Srinagar we stayed in this boat house and we were apprehensive about the food. The best was the food they made delicious vegetarian food. Overall Food, Location and View. We just loved this place.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Lily of Nageen has two self-contained bedrooms, each with a double bed plus a single bed and its bathroom. The dining room, living room and the porch are to be shared by our guests. We can accommodate up to six people on our boat. We live on a neighboring boat, so that we can be of service anytime you need us. We can cook delicious meals for you and there is always a good selection of drinks available to our guest. Should you have special requirements, we will endeavor to provide for them. If our houseboat is fully booked we can find accommodation for you on other houseboats, still considering you as our guest and looking after your needs and wishes. Houseboats in Kashmir are a British invention. They came into life around 1880 – as a British solution to a land purchasing prohibition imposed on foreigners. The Maharaja of that time allowed foreigners to live on lakes and rivers only. The British took on the challenge of creating luxurious floating houses using the best handicrafts Kashmir could offer. Cedar is the wood of choice for boat construction. The rooms have wooden walls and carved ceilings, walnut furniture, Kashmir handcrafted rugs, embroidery & curtains. ... more   less
