About The Experience
A Shikhara is a traditional Gondola type light rowing boat which is mostly seen on the pristine Dal Lake, apart from other lakes. It is one of the most incredible and relaxing aspects of a holiday in Kashmir, and should be included in your itinerary if you want to experience the surreal beauty of this region to the fullest. Along with the houseboats, it is also considered to be a cultural symbol. But even apart from leisure and tourism purposes, the shikhara is also used by the locals for seaweed harvesting, fishing and transportation.
To watch these beautifully decorated boats glide serenely on the lake is a treat to the eyes, and you should definitely not miss out on this experience during your holidays in Jammu and Kashmir. Shikara ride in Dal Lake is one of the most popular tourist activities in Srinagar. It is something that everyone visiting Kashmir looks forward to. As a matter of fact, not just the tourists but it is also a favorite evening activity even for the locals.
If you think about it, it is actually just a boat ride, like you would do anywhere else on any body of water. But still, it feels different. It feels charming. It feels pleasant. There is something different when you do this boat ride in Dal Lake, sitting in a Shikara.
