One of the prime reasons due to which Kashmir receives a huge influx of tourists every year are the lakes in its capital city, Srinagar. The lakes in Srinagar are not the usual waterbodies, which you can find anywhere, but they are the epitome of peace, serenity and tranquility. Prominent lakes which deserve such an introduction are Dal Lake, Nagin Lake, Anchar Lake, Wular Lake and Manasbal Lake. Considered as the face of Srinagar, all these beautiful lakes possess a scenic background of the mountains. Filled with narrow water canals, houseboats, floating shops and gardens, these beautiful lakes are amongst the best tourist attractions in the city. The enchanting lakes connect to the other major attractions in Srinagar.
Owing to this, one can simply book a houseboat and visit several places, located all along the banks of the lake. Attractions like Nishat Garden Hazratbal Mosque, Shah Hamdan’s Shrine, Nasim Bagh and Nehru Garden lie in the vicinity of these lakes.
