good morning

1)may you suggest a good hoseboat accomodation in dal lake srinagar and how much I would expect to pay?

2) How much I would expect to pay for a three daya ride between srinagar and leh in private taxi?

3) do you think is better to look for a jeep (4WD vehicle)?

best regards

Gurkha Houseboat group is on Nagin lake - the OP is looking for Dal. I do have a possible contact where you can get details and discuss accomodation dates, the trip to Leh and such.

Best way is to contact the owner himself directly.

Can I book vehicles from Delhi and would it be a better choice to stay at Nagin Lake or at Dal Houseboats?

You can get a houseboat package including the vehicle taking you to the sightseeing places you mentioned - which is less hassle and possibly less expensive in the long run since it's part of the package tour. Again, I would not try to book it in Delhi (such as with a 3rd party travel agency) but rather deal with the houseboat owner himself.

As far as which lake, I think it depends on what you're looking for. Dal Lake is closer to many attractions such as the Mughal Gardens, Nehru Park and the restaurants/shops that area offers, Dalgate, etc. Nagin is a little distant from the tourist centres.

Hope this helps.
