Home :: India Destination :: Jammu & Kashmir :: Dal Lake, Kashmir
Dal Lake, Kashmir

Dal LakeThe Kashmir Valley is a favourite of millions of tourists and holidaymakers. In the midst of all the exotic landscape and the natural splendours, the Dal Lake serves as the 'beauty tag' of Kashmir. This second largest lake of the state of Jammu and Kashmir has a number of gardens and orchards dotting its shores. The University of Kashmir too occupies a position along the lake. For tourists, the Dal Lake serves as a complete travel package, offering a variety of experiences.

Spend a couple of days in the heart-stirring Kashmir Valley and take out time to be around the Dal Lake. You will have myriad options to fill your days with fun and flavour. The lake itself is considered as one of finest lakes in the country. Whether you are a newly-wedded couple, an individual or a family, the lake proves to be equally charming to all.

Shikara Rides
The first thing that strikes you most is the string of houseboats that resemble the gondolas of Venice. These luxurious houseboats have been specially designed and come in different categories. Once you book a trip through these houseboats, you will soon find out why a houseboat cruise is the first love for tourists arriving here. A complete lifestyle can be observed on and along the lake. An atmosphere of peace and serenity welcomes you as you experience a smooth ride along the lake.

Floating along in the shikaras, you can observe the complete cycle of life that goes on here. You have everything on the lake, from the grocer to the barber and the florist to the doctor. The exotic houses with sloping roofs and the beautifully laid-out gardens make a wonderful sight for tourists.

Surrounding Areas of the Dal Lake
The vicinity of the lake is as impressive as the lake itself. As you advance, you come across with more and more wonderful sights that are fit for your travel snaps. The islands around are dotted with groups of houses that have been built in a special way and are characterised by sloping roofs. The landscaped gardens are another fascinating sight for holidaymakers. Further advancement gets you to the Bod Dal and the Lokut Dal.

Nagin Lake
House Boat in Nagin LakeThe Dal Lake leads you next to the comparatively smaller Nagin Lake, dotted with water lilies and shikaras, which serve as mobile shops. The lake contributes much to promoting the tourism of the state. Apart from enjoying the peaceful atmosphere, you also have the opportunity of soaking up the stunning views of the mountains from here.

Mughal Gardens & Hazratbal Mosque
Your Dal Lake trip also includes visits to the world-famous Mughal Gardens. The specialty of these gardens – Nishat Bagh, Shalimar and Chashma Shahi – is that they make the visitor feel special too. Amid the lush ambiance you can surely spend moments that you will cherish all your life. Another must-see for tourists is the famed shrine – the Hazratbal Mosque. Lying on the western banks of the Dal Lake, the mosque is built in white marble. It definitely is a worth-remembering sight as the structure reflects itself in the placid waters of the lake.
