Dal Lake Srinagar

Sri Nagar, Jammu & Kashmir, India

Dal LakeThe land of hills and dales construed with much care and intricacy by the Creator is Kashmir - the erstwhile "Paradise on Earth". The Dal Lake meanders through this paradisiacal valley carrying with it elongated shikaras or houseboats.

Lacing The Valleys
Jammu and Kashmir's second largest lake, the Dal, meanders through a course that is flanked by lush Mughal gardens and monuments, plummetted orchards, the University of Kashmir and what not to meet the river Jhelum . Elegant and elongated Shikaras or the Venician gondola look-a-like float through the lake carrying curious visitors, who at times feel benumbed by the serenity of the locale and perhaps wonder - can this same valley echo the gun-shots? Overlooking the lake are two hillocks that house the famous temples of Shankaracharya and Hari Parbat.

More than hundreds of houseboats animate these tranquil waters ferrying around tourists, vendors and fishermen. Salesmen paddle from boat to boat, selling every thinkable ware like fresh flowers and fruit from the valley, nuts, Kashmiri handicraft, handmade carpets and many more items that can be either carried back home as souvenirs or spice yourself or your rooms with an enviable Kashmiri flavour.

A cruise through the lake can be one of the most romantic sail through beauty in its most ethereal abundance.
