Jul 2019 • Solo
It is located at about 14 km from chandanwari.
A bit difficult treak but very beautiful.
Water is very calm here.
This lake is the source of jhelum river and is surrounded by many glaciers.
Lake is very deep so go inside only if expert in sweeming.
There is also a small temple made of stones near lake dedicated to sheshnag

Visit in the first week of June 2018 before Amanth Yatra season
Jun 2018 • Solo
This is my third visit to Pahalgam because I waited for the snow to melt so that I could go to this Lake. I am glad I visited in early June to avoid the pilgrimage troop of Amanath Yatra ( The Holy Cave). The view along the road and the Lake makes me breathless for its beauty. I stopped taking photos many many times. Hiking to Sheshnag should be on your list if you visit Pahalgam in the summer. Make this place your one stop for adventures. You may contract Wildfun adventure treks and tours in Pahalgam.

Adventure of a lifetime: Our trek to Sheshnag Lake with Meraj Ganai and Wildfun Adventure
Jun 2018 • Couples
We are so lucky to have chosen Mehraj and Wildfun Adventure as our trekking guide service. His 16 years of experience exploring the region were evident as soon as we contacted him. He made sure every detail was covered, from the proper gear and meals to the right rest stops and ascent/descent techniques.Even though it was our first trekking experience, it felt like we were well seasoned explorers.We highly recommend it if you want to make the most of your time exploring the Kashmir region.

Divine # Breath taking # Heaven
Jul 2017 • Friends
Divine # Breath taking # Heaven # Beautiful are to small words to describe this paradise of a Lake on earth. Sheshnag is the most beautiful lake I have seen anywhere across India in my entire travel history.
Sheshnag Lake is located approx 11 Km away from Chandwari base camp which is 18 kms away from Pahalgam. The only way to visit this lake is by undertaking Amarnath Yatra via Pahalgam route.This lake is beautiful that I have spent hours gazing at its beauty & blue water flowing from the glaciers.Covered by mountains from 3 sides this lake is in shape of a Sheshnag i.e the divine snake which is around neck of Lord Shiva hence it is named Sheshnag...
Trust my words it is simply heaven.If you every get a chance do visit this one ...

Simply mesmerizing
Jul 2017
Sheshnag Lake is situated Kashmir Himalayas and can be accessed after a 15-16 km trek (if one wants to reach the base camp area near lake) from Chadanwari which is a small establishment 16 kms away from Pahalgam, nearest town and famous tourist place. Sheshnag lake is on route of Amarnath Yatra and serves as a base camp for pilgrims. This beautiful himalayan lake is filled with glacier water which are lying on adjacent mountains. The route to lake is very scenic and along with mountain terrain, it also gives you a good views of huge plain grassland too. During winter, climb becomes bit difficult but if one is in Pahalgam, one should really visit Sheshnag lake
