Dal Lake – Dal Lake is by far one of the most pristine lake in the whole country. In addition to its already existing glory, the government is investing a good deal of money to renovate the lake and add more touches to it. Dal Lake is not a mass of water just flowing still, but rather, a complex labyrinth of conduits and streams making the sight of the lake even more mind blowing. The best to explore and appreciate this lake is by taking a Shikara (boat) ride. You can even choose to stay in one of the houseboats on the lake.

Nagin Lake – Found at the foothills of Zabarwan hills, Nagin Lake is one of the prime vacation spots in the city that must not be missed. Fundamentally, it is a branch of the main Dal Lake. Being encompassed by mountains-Hari Parbat on the west and Shankaracharya hills on the east, the area of the Nagin Lake turns out to be a worshiping sight. Much the same as the other prevalent lakes in Srinagar, well-known houseboats like Shikharas are a typical sight here.
