The houseboat festival in Kashmir displays the soul of Kashmir on Dal Lake.

Dal Lake, near Srinagar, Jammu & Kashmir, will soon play home to a two-day houseboat festival honoring the deep tranquility of the region.

A beautiful floating stage, live music, cultural events, different art displays, and food-related activities will honor the two-day festival. The celebration also included a light show and illuminated houseboats that added more beauty to the festive shenanigans.

In the two-day festive, the Kashmir Valley is the only place where one might catch a glimpse of shimmering Shikaras over the Dal Lake with the Zabarwan Hills in the distance and subzero temps to add more beauty to the scenery.

Nonetheless, for the first time in forever, houseboats, mostly entirely occupied by visitors and the locals during the winter, are getting ready to entertain the people who would visit the houseboat festival.

In the chilly winter of Jammu and Kashmir, the shikaras will receive visitors, even after the high chances of the freezing Dal lake, in honor of the spirit of the festival and Kashmir.

Worldwide, people refer to Kashmir as the “Winter Wonderland.” Thus, everything is set up this year. The valley’s organizations anticipate a vast, strong winter tourism surge where all the necessary preparations have been made and put in, providing one of the best experiences to the visitors.

There will be many activities which will be introduced in the two-day celebration. Artists from the land of Jammu and Kashmir, also from all over the nation, will get a chance to perform at the Houseboat festival surrounded by visitors. To inspire more winter travelers to Kashmir, folk performances with the advanced laser show will highlight the enthusiasm for the land and its culture.

Live concerts with Kashmiri musicians will fill the lake with the soulful maestro.

As Jammu and Kashmir have some unspoken relation with snow, The MeT department forecasts a repost of snowfall in the Kashmir region.

The report has led to inquiries from the local stakeholders and reservations from tourists, who will witness the live coverage of the Houseboat festival in the upcoming days.

However, it has been noted that Kashmir attracts more tourists the more snowfall Kashmir receives.
