One need to hire a vehicle from Srinagar to visit this place. It is advisable to cover Manasbal Lake and Khir Bhawani temple in the return journey. The place is very calm and quite. Its pure natural beauty. The lake is about 60 Kms from Srinagar and if you include Mansbal & Kheer Bhawani, it shall consume almost full day.... More

Last point after Bandipur and further to this place its POK. The story of Kuka Parray was very haunting. Interesting thing is that Jhelum falls in this lake from North and again continues from south. But this lake is under 24 hrs surveillance and fully covered with trees and is known as the most prone place for insurgency.

I visited Wular in late October as part of a relief mission after the recent floods. People here are struggling to salvage ruined crops and find shelter for the coming winter. The beauty of the place shines through in spite of the tragedy and man's encroachment. As a previous review said, this is real Kashmir.

It is supposed to be largest fresh water lake but we did not find enough water to judge it even as a lake. It is fully covered by wild water plants which do not allow water to show up. At that time, there was not even enough water. There is a park where a nominal charges are levied is not... More

This place isn't meant for the regular tourist and a day visit for picnic is not worth making the journey and waste precious time for those who are in Kashmir to enjoy a vacation. This place is meant for those who have a little time on hand and wants to experience the real Kashmir. During my 10 days visit, I... More
