The pleasant accommodation that the Indian culture has to offer to its international tourists and for citizens looking for a getaway weekend – houseboats are a common trend in the backwaters of Kerala and the wonder of Srinagar. Starkly different from boathouses, houseboats are designed to be used as a home with all amenities and services.

They are usually moored instead of running on a motor and kept stationary for quiet periods of time. In and around natural water bodies such as rivers, lakes, and canals, houseboats are found in India in Kashmir and Kerala. The houseboats in Jammu and Kashmir are found easily around the dal lake for tourists to wake up to the chill of the air and the sight of still water. The houseboats in Srinagar are stationary and usually moored around Nageen lakes and the edges of the Dal lake. As for the houseboats in the state of Kerala, in the southern region of the Indian subcontinent – they are usually massive and slow, moving through the backward running water of the country.

A delight for tourists to be in synchrony with the realm of beauty and nature, the quiet houseboats offer an enjoyable experience away from the thuds of civilization and modernity.
