As all other tourists and travelers, we wanted to experience the stay in a house boat. On researching more about this, got to know that dal lake is really crowded and it would be a better choice to stay here at Nigeen Lake. And I would say, we did not regret this decision of ours. We had a peaceful and calm stay at Nigeen Lake. I would say this is one of the best sunset points. Highly recommend over Dal lake.

Its better than dal lake in terms of quietness and commercialization. Will recommend for a shikahra ride and if not wanting vendors one can tell the boatman to tell them not to come

An extension of the Great Dal lake, but not as crowded as it's parent. So, worth staying here for a quiet but beautiful experience of the lake and the surroundings along with houseboat. One can take a Shikara ride to roam around this lake or even visit Dal lake, but that will take longer time. So, better to visit the Dal lake separately as time permits.

Adjacent to Dal Lake & Hazratbal dargah this is the younger cousin of Dal..less touristy but high on character. The houseboats are a class apart.

We had our houseboat booked here .The lake is quite and cleaner than Dal lake. The views are great but as it was all cloudy and raining,we could not enjoy much.

One can choose to stay in houseboat on west banks of Nigeen lake instead of Dal lake. it will give you better views of himalaya ... and its calm than dal lake..

Nigeen Lake is adjascent to Dal Lake. But it is less commercialized and hence more clean and peaceful than Dal Lake. If you love peace, then Nigeen Lake is the best choice.

Kings Houseboat was recommended by a friend and we are so grateful to find this gem of old school luxury. We stayed on the three bedroom Boat but there is also options of two and four bed boats available all found within the gated community of this family’s plot. This is a special find as you will find yourself in a secluded location on Nigeen lake with no other boats visible. Surrounded by lotus flowers and the sounds of chirping birds this is truly a slice of paradise. The family provide breakfast and a different home cooked meal every evening. They are also an endless source of local information and can help with any travel plans large or small. This family boasts three generations of history in houseboats and you will benefit from those years of experience in customer care. They call Nigeen lake the Jewel in the crown but I think this location / boat / family are the real Jewel. Just superb. Katy & Ian
