  • There are around 250 house boat in the nigeen lake. This lake is situated far away from the city and not people who like hustle and bustle. The house boat at nigeen lake are equally good and you can e...  more »
  • We stayed here for 3 nights in a houseboat. It definitely is more secluded - perhaps even gives a better view of the surrounding mountains. But the lake is very dirty (weeds) - Dal Lake is far cleaner...  more »
  • If want to stay at a houseboat in Srinagar, then instead of Dal Lake, you must try the ones in Nigen Lake than in Dal Lake. It is much more pristine, clean, tranquil and less crowded.  more »

  • A serene lake in Srinagar city..... Beauty and grace define it.... The name nigeen come from the fact that the water is clear and blue and on a great weather day the lake looks like one huge blue gem.... There are houseboats in the lake that you can rent... Best way to spend time in the city....
  • The best sunset one can experience! The lake offers unparalleled calm and takes you away from all hustles of life. The best time to visit is surely at sunset. When the sun is just above the Hari Parbat, the view is exceptionally scintillating !
  • Nigeen Lake is a mildly eutrophic lake located in Srinagar, Jammu and Kashmir, India. It is sometimes considered a part of the Dal lake and is connected to it via a narrow strait. It's a nice lake which is better and cleaner than Dal Lake and it's less crowded place than Dal Lake.
  • Place is good. Be careful with the local people. They will talk softly but They are ready to cheat. Never buy good on the boat.(shikara) Always buy from local shop. Even shikara ride is 100/- per hour. But they will ask for 600/- per hour. Never trust be smart.
  • Its a beautiful lake with the peace and serenity that is nowadays missing in the busy Dal lake. It has numerous houseboats with all amenities. Many of them have a waiting room, dining room, a double-cot bedroom with attached bathroom/toilet facilites. Most have a balcony or a sit out area to look out the beautiful surroundings. I had an amazing experience in my few days of stay in this ambience.
