Dal lake is full of tourists and activities. There are markets and shikara rides. Nagin lake on the other hand is devoid of such things. One should stay in Nagin lake house boats only if one likes to watch the nature in true sense. Serene, tranquil and calm. This is place to just lie down and watch or just mediate.... More

This lake is so peaceful and hawker free. There is almost no traffic sounds! You don't need a shikara fro moving up and down and has a garden right outside the boat for kids to play or us to roam

I choose to stay in a house boat Nagin lake rather than Dal Lake as its a more quieter and peaceful place compared to Dal Lake which is more noisy and commercial. The Lake is beautiful and clean and I recommend staying in houseboat over concrete hotels if ur visiting during summers, and in winters pls avoid house boats as... More

Average place, not comparable to Dal Lake which is much better. One may choose to skip this if short on time.

I recently visited Nagin Lake (After the Floods) and the water was not clean, on the other hand Dal lake was better, the houseboats which are near the roadside have alot of traffic sound. We did a Shikara ride for half an hour which costed around Rs. 300, try to bargain with the shikara people. Everyone has their own opinion,... More

Nagin lake is located on the other end of the city and is away from commercialization…..it’s really nice for those who want to stay away from the commercial activities on Dal Lake.

It is very clean as compared to the dal.Gives amazing views. You will love sitting in houseboat till late night. Nagin is the place to experience the calm and quiet of Srinagar. Shikara rides very nice to see birds, floating vegetable, lotus. Nagin is the better choice if you want to be far from the crowd and free from hawkers... More
