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.

I first came to these houseboats in 1995 and was very pleased to find that the peaceful setting of Nagin Lake has changed little and, more importantly, that the standard of hospitality is as good as it ever was.

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.
