That was really funny. On the way back to Sri****r it started to monsoon. Some of the road was blocked by landslides. It was quite ...

We phoned the houseboat when we got close and by the time ...

      Srinagar's signature houseboats first appeared in colonial times when the British were prohibited from purchasing land in India. As Kashmir was a favourite summer destination to escape the heat, a solution to accommodate themselves was to build opulent houseboats on Dal Lake.
