    Beautiful & Serene Nigeen Lake
    Nigeen lake is really beautiful! Being away from the hustle bustle of the city, it’s quite clean and peaceful. We stayed in a houseboat on Nigeen lake and it was a wonderful experience. While Dal lake has its own charm, visit to serene Nigeen lake is definitely worth while in Srinagar.

    A Shikara Ride
    Even though this Lake is an offshoot of the Dal Lake, the association ends there. Nigeen Lake is clean, peaceful & quiet. Lounging in the shikara and watching lotus flowers and birds float by, you will wish you didn’t have to leave this.

Stayed here on this lake. The view from the lake is absolutely mesmerising and I was lucky to see my life’s first snowfall and the iced lake. Surrounded by mountains shaped like oval. This lake is worth a try. Staying on lake gives you all together a different experience.

As all other tourists and travelers, we wanted to experience the stay in a house boat. On researching more about this, got to know that dal lake is really crowded and it would be a better choice to stay here at Nigeen Lake. And I would say, we did not regret this decision of ours. We had a peaceful and calm stay at Nigeen Lake. I would say this is one of the best sunset points. Highly recommend over Dal lake.

An extension of the Great Dal lake, but not as crowded as it's parent. So, worth staying here for a quiet but beautiful experience of the lake and the surroundings along with houseboat. One can take a Shikara ride to roam around this lake or even visit Dal lake, but that will take longer time. So, better to visit the Dal lake separately as time permits.

Very calm and serene as compared to the hustle bustle of Dal Lake. Picturesque. Good mountain views. A late evening shikara ride takes you through the Lotus park, Vegetable parks and into Meena bazar. Mr Abid ensured we had a thoroughly enjoyable 3 hr time.

Smaller than the main Dal lake but better for it. A lot less houseboats filling the banks and wide enough for privacy on a houseboat if you stay here. Plus the possibility of sunset views if you choose the side facing the fort.
