We visited this place during August 2015, it was about 1.5 hours journey from Srinagar. Well, I must say I was pretty disappointed. Lake is dying, looked very dirty from top. Most of the part is covered with a lot of water weeds. Not worth traveling 1.5 hours, half a day was wasted on this!

Visited this world famous water body and biggest lake in Kashmir, two days before. I was very much dejected to see the present condition of this lake. It is not clean and is being encroached by locals. There is dire need to protect it..........

I have been here many times, and went there last year as part of a trip to a famous sufi saints shrine in Sopore. It is almost 65 km from Srinagar, and takes a bit to get. At places the road is not the best, but one always feels close to nature. This lake is mysterious in an indescribable way,... More

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

We visited Wular lake on d way Manasbal in April this year.There is a well maintained garden on d top of d lake.it is so big & beautiful lake, one must visit. My advise is to hire vehicle from Srinagar for Manasbal-Wular lake-Baba Sakruddin. It will worth for a day.

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.
