“Crown of India”

I could have had no better introduction to the enchanting land of India and the majestic Himalayas than the one I had with the warm-hearted and welcoming people of the Lalarukh group of boathouses on Dal Lake. They guided me on the first steps of my journey to an alien country with the amicability of old friends. I have no doubt that I will return to these people again and again on future trips to India - the really make you feel like one of the family

Such an amazing place !
A stay in Dal Lake is something so precious you will never forget.
A stay in Lalarukh Houseboat is also something so amazing, i wish all to enjoy that one day in their life.
Of course, as announced, beautiful and comfortable rooms, so good food, tchai and kawa, and most of all kindness of the people in this place. They do all possible to make my stay unforgettable and give me all the advices i need to organize my visit in Kashmir valley.

We Arrived in Delhi on the 28th of august. We booked a 4 week trip with ITBC and out first place to stay was with lalarukh group of houseboats. It was the best hotel we could wish for! Friendly people, good food and the most beautiful lake you could wish for! If you wish to see a truly amazing and unique part of india we would recommend to go to dal lake, kashmir and experience a different world!

Greetings from the Netherlands,

Maik en Jip

All the family and friends working on the HB is avalable to help with everything booking your next step in your traver as such as visiting Srinagar.
The HB is decorated with nice Kashemir furnitures, you feel like being at home at some point.
HB is also quiet at night and in the middle of the neibourghood with great scenery on mountains and others Houses boats.
Food is typical from the area and can be on demand, tomatoes chicken was a MUST! ;)
Thanks to all this big family for our lasts days in Kashemir.

Liked best: Spending time on the roof, watching the nice scenery.
Liked least: Family is large, and privacy is sometime hard to have because people knock on our door often just to say hello, they care and are super kind instead.

“pursuit of happiness”

I have to say its really hard to put in words what and how I felt here. It was an amazing stay and when I arrived I saw a message on a shikara (small taxi boats), it was written: Come as a guest, go as a friend. Actually I left this place as a part of the family. The people here are so friendly and you can have a really good time with them and the other people which stay here. I made a lot of good friends. Even if your not that communicative you can paddle out on the heavenly daal lake and enjoy the silence. There are thousands of activities you can do around here, like trekking day trips to temples and beautiful gardens and even to the biggest lake in asia. What ever you need or plan to do, they will help you as best as they can.
At least I can just say: If you come here to stay we might meet eachother, because I come definitely again.
THANKS
