Dal lake taking the lime-light,Nagin lake is rich in quiet and privacy. Being less busy,many water-birds which avoid Dal are easy to watch here.

Liked: Very calm and neater than the Dal lake. The sunrise through Snow covered mountains is a must see. Disliked: Hawkers are seen in the lake which use to come with some handmade jewels, dress materials which is sometimes felt a nuisance.

The lake is called as Nigeen lake instead of Nagin lake. The water is quite clean over there compared to the Dal Lake. The place is quite peaceful with fewer number of houseboats compared to the Dal Lake. We stayed there in India Palace Group of houseboats over there.

If u r ok with complete serenity n being cut off from civilisation to enjoy nature, stay here. Amazing views from front deck. Shikaras come along with traders peddling local items. It's great to support them if you can but do bargain down the price. According to our guide, It's how trade is done here.
