The Kashmiri houseboats came into existence during the Maharaja rule, when India was under British occupation and it was during that time there arised a need of a carrier that could carry goods from villages to towns and cities, and therefore the “dongas” came into existence - a mobile carrier via river Jhelum. During summers in India, it used to get hot and the ruling British wanted Kashmir as their summer holiday destination. That‟s how the concept of staying in a houseboat came about, turning the dongas into houseboats. These houseboats went under a lot of modification in size and shape and ultimately developed into a unique and indigenous mode of accommodation. Today it has become a „world famous‟ tourism product.
