Up in mountains of Kashmir you find a refuge from the burning heat down south. At Dal lake, Srinagar the British made houseboats for this purpose that are still in use.

The lake makes wonderful scenery for a shikara boat tour around the lake. To see the floating gardens and old city and woodcrafts workshops that are not to be missed as there a simply amassing. Be ready for the shopkeepers that will paddle there boutique up to you and offer you spices and handcrafts.

If you like honey as I you can also get to taste purges some just inform your shikara-wallah of you likings and he will know where you like to go.

Address: Kashmir, Shrinagar, Dal Lake.
Directions: 10 min by car from Shrinagar airport. Going down to Jammu train station will take around 6-7 hours by jeep.
