Nagin Lake is one of the prettiest parts of Srinagar. A shikara boat ride through the waterways is indeed romantic and refreshing. If you venture on a moonlit night, the experience will be a forever keeper.

Make sure to choose to stay in a houseboat on Nagin Lake as against Dal lake if you are looking for a noiseless peaceful stay. The lake is awesome, calm, serene and a true experience of heaven on earth.

Dal is over hyped. Nagien lake is quieter, cleaner and better for a stay . The houseboats are fewer hence the lake looks less crowded. The waters are still and mornings offer a perfect view of sunrise as the sun rises from behind the mountains opposite to view area of the house boats and makes the water look golden .... More
