An evening at dal lake is something you need when you want to have some time alone, boulevard is the best place to sit around and enjoy the views.

The lake is bit crowded with the houseboats but it still shows its beauty. The main road is actually by the lake and you could simply walk or drive around the lake.

Shikara is romantic thing to do in Dal lake but make sure you don’t get hassled by shopkeepers. Open lake seems to be cleaner and quiet. We did few Shikara rides and best time is on sunset.

Hi, Most of the time, the House boat has their own Shikara on which you can go to & Fro. Moreover, they do not charge you for the same. When you check out, you may give some tips to the Shikara rider.
