  • 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 »

  • It's an excellent place to visit and also to stay in one of the house boats. We stayed at peacock house boat and it was a wonderful experience. It's a clean lake. When compared to the famous dal lake this lake is beautiful and has an excellent view of the mountains and snow peaks
  • 5 star is not sufficient to rate this place,just HEAVEN.
  • Beautiful , better than Dal Lake in many ways
  • 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....
  • Such a nice view of nigeen lake when tourist or foreigner come to Kashmir first they prefer to go there because they stay in houseboats and enjoy night view of lake
