If there is Heaven on Earth, it is this, it is this, it is this." Emperor Jehangir Jammu and Kashmir is the paradise of India and a pleasure destination for tourists from all over the world. Come and experience it for yourself, and let us help make your trip one of lasting wonderful memories.
Kashmir is truly one of the world's most beautiful and fascinating places. Set in the foothills of the Himalayas , it is a land of high mountain peaks, bright rivers filled with trout and serene lakes reflecting the soft colours of lotus blossoms. Tiered Mughal gardens lead down to the water's edge where the slap of the paddles tells of a passing "shikara".
Early each morning, as the sun catches the mist lying over the lake you can understand why they call this place paradise. The Peacock Houseboats are moored on the top site of Nagin, one of the most beautiful and peaceful of all the lakes.
Made of fragrant cedar and well furnished with antique wooden furniture , the ornately carved houseboats reflect a time gone-by reminiscent of the days of the British Raj . The New Peacock has a spacious carpeted sitting room, dining room, and bedrooms with western bathrooms attached. A cushioned verandah looks out over the lake – the houseboy will serve tea as the sun sets over the mountains peaks and skikaras paddle slowly by, offering fresh fruit, flowers and handicrafts for sale. And expansive sun deck on top of the houseboat is perfect for sitting in the warm sunshine. Western breakfast and choice of authentic Kashmiri or Western lunches and dinners are served by the houseboy.
SRINAGAR: The capital city of Kashmir is Srinagar (one mile high), which is the soul and pulse of the state. The population of 1.2 million people revolves around the river Jhelum and the Dal Lake. This was the summer capital of the British in 1793. The rulers of Kashmir let the British live here but did not allow them to build, so the British took to the water and started living on HOUSEBOATS, which since then has become a legend.
