What people say

"The Shikara ride of the Dal Lake is the most famous thing to do when in Srinagar. The lake is spread far and wide. The Shikaras (boats) are rowed manually by the local folks. In the months of May and June, it is filled with multi-coloured lotus. It is a beautiful view. And you may witness one of the best sunsets of your life during your Shikara ride."
"End your day with a Shikhara ride at the Dal lake during sunset. Observe the famous floating market. "
"An urban lake, the second largest lake in Jammu and Kashmir. Great for boating and shikara rides."
