A House Boat experience The access to this boat is remote and deserted. I felt unsafe and the facilities are dingy. When I booked it was advertised as 4-star, it does not deserve even 1-star. The airport pickup was included in the rate but the driver was more than 1-hour late. I was the only occupant on the boat and if I was a foreigner or a woman, I would be scared to death. From the moment I arrived at the boat, the owner got down to a sales tactics to organizing my entire Kashmir stay and all prices were sky high and when I did not bite, he was not happy. The breakfast was deplorable. The worst value for money stay I have ever taken and I spend at least hundred days per year on the road! Beware!
