India has the most widely distributed postal network and the largest number of post offices in the world is a known fact. But did you know about India’s floating post office? Yes it’s true!

Set in a huge houseboat against the snow-clad mountains on the beautiful Dal lake in Srinagar, India’s first and only floating post office is also believed to be the only one of its kind in the world!

A government office might not be an obvious feature on a tourist’s itinerary but you’ll be surprised to know how many visitors to Srinagar take a boat ride right up to the post office just to send a postcard back home to their loved ones.
