Srinigar with it’s Moghul gardens full of bright flowers (under the care of the Department of Floriculture) mirror lakes and wooden house boats is just beautiful. The political turmoil of recent years has left few marks and all is peaceful at present. We felt like Maharajahs staying at Fantasia Houseboat on Lake Nageen (cleaner and quieter than Dahl lake). This boat, newly restored by the owner, Rahim Langoo, is lined with Deodar pine panels so it’s like living in a cedar chest: smells wonderful. We can recommend this clean, spacious boat. Rahim’s Mum is a wonderful cook and visiting trekking guide and “concierge” Anna Candy was great as our local tour guide. A wonderful relaxing place to stay.
