We stayed in a houseboat in this silent lake planned to spend a night and true to our expectations this lake is absolutely calm with no buzz like in Dal lake.

I feel it's definitely more preferable to stay in a houseboat at Nigeen lake rather than Dal lake. It's far more beautiful and clean and is very peaceful too here.
