Nagin Lake is smaller compared to Dal Lake (and less famous) but very peaceful. Highly recommended for Houseboat stay in Nagin Lake. Shikara Ride from Nagin Lake provides a golden opportunity to see the beauty and peace of Srinagar and the lake.

Do a shikara ride in Nageen lake instead of Dal. It is cleaner and much peaceful. There are fewer boats so you can enjoy your privacy.

This lake is smaller than the Dal lake, but much cleaner and quieter. Certainly the place to be if you want a quiet houseboat experience.

Nagin is the better choice if you want to be Far From the Madding Crowd. It is quieter, The houseboats are better and you get more privacy and better views.

Nagin Lake is an offshoot of Dal Lake. It is cleaner and more serene than Dal. If you wish to stay in a houseboat, then those on Nagin are preferable.

If you are a peace lover and want spend your holiday in complete tranquility then nagin lake is a ideal place. There are lot of options available in the houseboats since houseboats in this lake are less occupied by domestic tourists. rentals are little expensive as compared to other lakes, but one can negotiate. Shikara ride of at least 2... More
