Nestled at the foothills of Zabarwan ranges in Srinagar, Nagin Lake is one of the prime tourist attractions in the city that must not be missed. Basically it is an offshoot of the parent Dal Lake. Being surrounded by mountains-Hari Parbat on the west and Shankaracharya hill on the east, the location of the Nagin Lake proves to be an adoring sight. Just like the other popular lakes in Srinagar, popular houseboats like Shikharas are a common sight here. These boats ferry people to and from the lake. Besides, the traditional Kashmiri Shikhara boats, visitors can also enjoy water skiing and fiberglass boat ride, which are made available at the embankments.
So shimmering and safe is the Nagin lake, one can even take a refreshing dip in the lake. As the banks of Nagin lake are bordered with several gardens, tourists can always visit them as part of their tour.
