The Houseboat festival organised in winters on the Dal Lake in Srinagar is Jammu & Kashmir’s one-of-its kind event. In winters, the beauty of Kashmir becomes more vibrant. This is the theme: to portray a vibrant Kashmir. The dark winters do not dull the beauty of Kashmir. The Houseboat event gives tourists a glimpse of the true culture of Kashmir through its music, food, dresses, art and the hospitality of Kashmiris. Festivals like this should be a regular event, say tourists.
