Exploring Dal Lake Houseboats during Pandemic

The ongoing pandemic is still looming large. It has probably disrupted many travel plans of the majority of tourists in the country besides the travellers from around the world. While it is safer to stay at home and practice caution, planning a vacation for two to three nights to Deluxe Dal Lake Houseboats would not be a bad idea.

Known as the Jewel of Kashmir, Dal Lake is pristinely beautiful and romantic as it is surrounded by the Pir Panjal Mountain Ranges and plane trees, willows and white minarets on its banks. Thus you can only imagine how fascinating and refreshing it would be to spend some quality time on the Dal Lake houseboats, especially amid a pandemic that has been mentally exhausting for most of us. 

Why are Dal Lake Houseboats Most Sought After Today?

As mentioned earlier, Dal Lake is so mesmerizing that the floating houses on this water body are actually in high demand throughout the year. The houseboats can be a reasonable accommodation option for people of all age groups. So whether you are going with your family or a special loved one, you can take in the beauty of the lake if you choose to stay at any Dal Lake houseboat.

Apart from that, the houseboats provide you with modern facilities which will not make you miss any land-based hotel. The houseboat owners make sure that your needs are met without facing any hassle. Right from taking care of your food preferences, they also keep you entertained with the local stories and local knowledge. 

The most exciting thing about staying at a houseboat is the opportunity to go for shikara rides to cherish the scenery around Dal Lake. Some of the houseboat owners will also help you plan out other activities like trekking, rope trolling, mountain biking, skiing etc. which are definitely some of the popular activities in Srinagar.

How Safe are Dal Lake Houseboats in the Pandemic?

Yes, we understand that the pandemic must be making you a little sceptical about the safety of Dal Lake houseboats. But do not worry as the houseboats are always kept well sanitized, especially the common areas of the houseboats are sanitized regularly.

Imagine Your Night Stay at Kashmir Houseboats

On the houseboat, you have fewer staff. Usually, it’s the houseboat owner and coordinator or so who are available for your help 24*7. So fewer people on the houseboat means fewer chances of the virus spreading as you will interact with only a few of them. Plus, the houseboat staff are also fully vaccinated. 

Further, it is also ensured in the houseboats that every guest produces a Negative RT-PCR report on the check-in and partially or fully vaccinated certificate. The safety of other guests onboard can be maintained. 

For those looking for a safe yet relaxing stay at the Dal Lake, Kashmir should book their houseboats from Kolu Group of Houseboats.
