It is connected to Dal Lake and has patches of extensive water lilies and beautiful endless lotus blooms. Spectacular experience listening to Jagjit Chitra ghazals on the shikara at sunset. Must do!

Even though Nigeen Lake is an offshoot of the Dal Lake, the association ends there. Nigeen is quiet, peaceful, clean. A shikara ride on the lake is a must-do. Lounging in the shikara and watching lotus flowers and birds float by, you will wish you never had to leave this.

Had 2 nights on a houseboat on Nagin lake. A getaway from the buzzing streets in Srinagar. Not much to do but short walks on the shore and boat-trips by shikara in the lake...Nice but only for a few days

Away from the main city, smaller then the Dal Lake but not so small lake in Srinagar. Very beautiful lake with good houseboats and lots of shikaras. Better place to stay.

Dall Lake is a Dull and dirty place with too much of crowd. Nagin is the place to experience the calm and quiet of Srinagar,

Quiet & serene unlike Dal Lake. We took the shikara for 300 (1/2 hr) but ended up staying 1 & 1/2 hr thanks to the thunder storm that caught us unawares, shaking the shikara violently and forcing us to park near the lotus garden at the lake side. But it was a memorable experience that we would cherish always. The... More
