  • 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.
  • Nestled at the foothills of Zabarwan ranges in Srinagar, Nagin Lake is one of the prime tourist attractions in the city that must not be missed. Basically it is an offshoot of the parent Dal Lake.  Being surrounded by mountains-Hari Parbat on the west and Shankaracharya hill on the east, the location of the Nagin Lake proves to be an adoring sight. Just like the other popular lakes in Srinagar, popular houseboats like Shikharas are a common sight here. These boats ferry people to and from the lake. Besides, the traditional Kashmiri Shikhara boats, visitors can also enjoy water skiing and fiberglass boat ride, which are made available at the embankments.
  • If you are in confusion between Dal lake and Nigeen lake, go for Nigeen lake.. It will be free and off beat which is always peaceful.
  • Mesmerising place... Whn India is so beautiful, der is no need to explore other countries.
  • A beautiful & relatively calmer lake than Dal Lake.

Where to stay in Srinagar

The moderate climate of Srinagar has made it a popular destination for locals during the summer, hence its good range of accommodations. Hotels basic and luxury, great and small, jostle for position alongside the main waterways, and across from the city's many historic gardens. However, staying on a houseboat on Dal Lake remains the most iconic way to ejoy your Srinagar holiday, with options ranging from budget to high-end. If you don't fancy spending your nights on the water, the palatial scale of the main tourist area makes it one of the more relaxing and popular areas to stay in. More cost-effective accommodations sit on the side streets of the residential districts further to the north.
