We have visited Dal Lake on 16th Jan 2020. The round of the lake was awesome, but I want to add some suggestions. Start ur trip before 3pm and take a full trip package in not more than 500-600 per person. You have to bargain.
Than on the way many shop on the boats come near to u, shop from them smartly otherwise ignore as they r taking high prices. Don't shop from the Dal Lake market as same items are available at low prices on other outer places.
