    Overall it was good experience. Only last hotel stay was big disappointment. Our last night stay was in house boat in Srinagar. Boat experience was good, however basic necessities were missing. Drinking water was paid, and no water given by default in the room. Room heater which was very basic neces
    sities in Srinagar in the winter, was not given to us, and when asked, they charged money for that. After all these, there was no honeymoon cake and candle light dinner given to us which was a part of our package. Which was very disappointed and mood killing for our honeymoon.
