The oceans, numerous lakes
and rivers offer plenty of opportunities to take a boat

raft to enjoy wildlife spotting, snorkelling or even to discover
submerged temples. Here are our top five interesting boat
trips you can do in India.
1. Shikara on the ‘Dal’ Lake –
The Bollywood endorsed ‘Dal’
Lake in Kashmir has been a legendary spot for travellers. The thin
Shikaras (boats) traverse through the water carrying tourists,
vegetables, supplies and locals. The whole life system on the lake is
supported by these unassuming boats, whether it’s supporting
full-fledged markets or serving as a school bus for children. The rides on shikaras are extremely fascinating
and help understand the local life better.
