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.

The lake is surrounded by mountains & dense forest accounting for 60% of the total fish production in the state. The drive to Wular lake was... More
