Trip Info

Enjoy a luxurious stay in a houseboat on the most famous lake of Kashmir Valley, the Dal Lake. Located in the heart of Srinagar, this is the second largest freshwater of the state and is integral to tourism. It is referred to as the “Jewel in the Crown of Kashmir” and is spread over an area of 10 square miles, with a length of 4 miles and a breadth of 2.5 miles. This heritage tour will give you a deeper appreciation of this culture.

It is a world of its own with numerous people making a livelihood from it. Shikaras, low-bottomed boats with a cloth canopy, take you into the beautiful and amazing world of Dal and the floating market. Depending on the time of year, beautiful lotuses will greet you during your shikara ride.

Upon your arrival in Srinagar, you will be met by your guide and transferred to your luxurious houseboat. In the afternoon, we will visit Mughal Gardens, Hazratbal Shrine and other beautiful places in Srinagar.

In the morning, we will drive to Pahalgam. Located on the banks of the Lidder River, it is the main base camp for the Amarnath Yatra. It is also the center of many activities like camping, fishing, golf, horse riding and trekking. Enjoy a pony ride to nearby places like Chandanwadi and Betab Valley or enjoy a pacifist walk along the River Lidder.

The next day, enjoy a day trip to Gulmarg. This meadow surrounded by the lovely mountains and beautiful forests, attracts everyone. It is an ideal skiing resort and the world’s highest 18-hole golf course. Enjoy a fun-filled pony ride and Gondola ride here. Take an exciting cable car ride to beautiful places, like Afarwat, Khilanmarg and Alpather Lake.

After breakfast, you will be treated to a shikara ride in the Dal Lake. After lunch, you will continue your onward journey.

    Het was een fijne ervaring
    We hebben het erg naar ons zin gehad in Kashmir! De mensen in Kashmir zijn ongelofelijke vriendelijk en gastvrij. Altijd bereid te helpen en soms zelfs uit te nodigen voor de speciale Kashmir chai/thee

    My wife and I spent a week in Lavish boathouse of Nazir Peer. The experience was outstanding. Family cooked for us delicious meals and last night we had Wazan oh my God that was something, which I would remember for ages. The room has Luxury Carved Wooden Bed where anyone can enjoy very good sleep. The bed is really comfortable and very stylish. The bathroom has 24 hours hot water. Besides we did two night and three days of camping in Narang. Nazir’s driver took us to Narang. Baba the guide set up the tent, Baba also cooked for us and organized mountain expeditions. Everything was faultless. My wife and I are very grateful to them. Sure we will come back and recommend anyone who wants to visit Kashmir.

    Nous avons adoré notre séjour au Cachemire, les ballades en ville et les randonnées en montagne, accompagnés d’un guide formidable, Nazir Peer! Son accueil chaleureux et sa famille adorable nous ont beaucoup marqués. De retour à Paris, après un mois de septembre merveilleux, le Cachemire nous manque déjà !
