Chicago Houseboats

Welcome to Kashmir

First of all, the beauty of the state cannot be described in words, so it has to be seen while cherished in the real sense of the word. Due to Mother Nature has blessed this valley with all her bounty and grandeur! Hence the valley is full of the mighty mountains, lush greenery, and blossoms of pinks, whites, yellows and flowers of probably all the rarest varities. Certainly the Chinar trees account for most of the elegance, painting the entire canvas with myriad of colors even more.

Kashmir is India’s Switzerland, therefore attracting local and international tourists seeking rather cool summer air, alpine scenery and Srinagar’s most noteworthy romantic houseboat accommodation.

So it takes one’s breath away to see the nature in all its colors of greens, oranges, yellows, and reds! Because the skies here are awesome azure with cotton like ivory clouds! Seems like magic accentuates the charm of houseboats and shikaras of Dal Lake.

Wonderful Dal Lake

★★★★★
5 5 1
We consider our three days at Chicago group of houseboats in Dal Lake as one of the highlights of our three weeks holiday in Ladakh and Kashmir. The staff members were always very willing to help and offer us delicious Kashmir-tea and cake/cookies.

Perfectly pampered

Very good service. Home made foods served, which is really nice. And willing to cook as per our choices. The Dal lake and shikaras surrounding the house boat gives you a different and good ambience of stay.

Amazing stay

We didn’t have to think about anything during our stay at Chicago Houseboats. Shortly after our arrival Ajaz sorted it all out for us, organising 3 beautiful days in Srinagar, and also took care of our trip to Leh and Ladakh. Thank you!
