    Reckoned to be the heartbeat of Srinagar, Dal Lake is the finest manifestation of the power and beauty of nature. This picturesque lake is spread over a large area of 26 sq km and is one of the major tourist attractions in Srinagar.

    The lake is set against the backdrop of the mighty Himalayas and is known for its houseboats and 'shikara' or wooden boat rides. The houseboats at the Dal Lake take tourists around on smooth rides around the lake while the 'shikaras' offer ferry rides to and from the Dal Lake to the houseboats.

    The Dal Lake is separated by causeways into four major basins, namely Lokut Dal, Gagribal, Bod Dal and Nagin.

    Overnight stay in a houseboat is an experience of a life time. A usual houseboat consists of a front balcony, a drawing room, a dining room and three bed rooms with attached toilets. Some of the houseboats even have a small terrace.

    Daily needs and small nick nacks can be bought from the floating markets which are the shikaaras selling selling their merchandise from house boat to house boat.
