Dal is a beautiful lake in the city of Srinagar. It is obvious that it’s the pride of Srinagar but Kashmir as well from the nicknames given to it: Srinagar’s jewel and Jewel in the “Crown of Kashmir”. This is an absolute must visit site in the city of Srinagar and a very enjoyable experience as well.
The picturesque lake is best seen by taking a joyous ride in the humble shikaras although you will find other options as well. Floating languidly surrounded by beauty of the highest quality, a visit to the Dal Lake is an experience you will keep with you all your life.
The whole area is quite breathtaking and the tall trees that surround the lake provide the setting for a lovely boat ride. The Shalimar Baug and Nishat Baug near the lake are lovely and worth seeing while at the lake.
