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

It's a nice small lake cleaner and carmer than Dal Lake. The lake is round shaped blue lake with beautiful view of the mountain.

If you are someone who likes to be at the thick of things and prefers a lot of vendors then stay in dal lake. This place is more for peace lovers. You also get a great view of fort.

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.

One night stay at dal lake and one at nigeen proved to be a good decision. Dal has got its charm and nigeen has its serenity.. loved the houseboat experiene and the shikara ride..
