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.

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.
