lovely lake but just too many houseboats on the lake and the whole place looks so commercial. If you are going for the experience of living in a houseboat, then it's well worth it as there are several optons but if you are looking for peace n quiet on a holiday......nagin lake is a better option

A shikara ride is a must.We paid Rs 1600 for almost 2 hours of the ride.The lake is huge and fairly clean. Please don't encourage vendors trying to sell various local ware as you will miss out on enjoying the beauty of the lake. A must do while in Srinagar.

Beautiful lake with very pleasant views. Crowded with Houseboat and Shikara rides. Only concern is the annoying sellers otherwise I would have given 5 stars.In the late evening walking across the Dal lake was a tremendous experience.
