While I was staying on a houseboat in Dal Lake, I took a little excursion by shikara. It seems like visiting Srinagar isn’t an option right now. Shortly after I left, there was an outbreak of violence. Here are a few photos I took.
View from inside the shikara.
These are some of the vegetable gardens belonging to a village in the middle of the lake.
I love the lotus gardens!
The shikaras all have colorful curtains to keep out the glaring sun.
And these were the two men who took me around the lake.
