A shikara is a traditional Gondola type boat that rows slowly. It is mostly seen on the serene Dal Lake. It is such a blessing to live and breathe in your very own Shikara. An experience worth every penny you spend on it. Being on a Shikara will fill you with calmness and make you feel light and easy. If that is not something that all of us need as a little moment stolen from our busy and hectic lives, I don’t know what is.
