Trip Planner: Asia / India / Himachal Pradesh / Kangra District / Dharamsala / McLeod Ganj / Dal Lake
Head out onto the waters of Dal Lake to gain a fresh look at the surrounding mountain scenery. Measuring about 15.5 km (9.6 mi) in circumference, the shimmering, mirror-like lake has a wealth of attractions surrounding it, with much of its shoreline neatly maintained in the form of Mughal gardens, parks, and hotels. Rent a colorful houseboat along the western edge to journey between the lake's many small islands and floating gardens. Plan your Dal Lake visit and explore what else you can see and do in Dharamsala using our Dharamsala trip builder site.
Dal Lake reviews
Space around it is very clean and good. The bed of long trees behind the lake makes it look so beautiful. Just make sure you visit the time when there is enough water in the lake. And try not to litter. Unfortunately the lake was shallow when we visited in December.
Average lake although sacred. People say it's more beautiful in winters. Littering is not allowed which preserves its beauty. Easily accessible. Ample of parking place. Police control is present during visiting hours thus no chaos.
