Dal Lake in Himachal Pradesh
He offers a package of 2500Rs/day which includes A to Z , from transportation to accommodation in Kareri village, but I found it way too expensive and decided to do everything on my own.There are 2 ways to reach Kareri village at a affordable price - get a bus to Ghera Village from Dharamsala. From Ghera Village you can get a Public taxi(Jeep) for Rs30 .

Don't confuse with the one in Srinagar. After reaching there we saw the lake didn't had much water. After 15 minutes there we decided to move to the Dal Naddi Sunset Point. But it was too early. So we decided to leave the cab and rent Two wheelers. The cab driver took us to the booking place.

We first went to Dal lake. Beautiful it was and even more beautiful was that ‘Paranthe wale bhaiya’ who served us with delicious paranthe for breakfast so early in the morning. We sat there for an hour or so and then left for Bhagsunag waterfall. But then, Siddharth had the ‘nature call’, so we had to re-route to a decent restaurant at Naddi. While he went to the washroom, we pretended like we were sitting there to eat. Soon enough he came back and we rode to Bhagsunagh.

We went to Dal Lake next, its a complete disappointing spot you can just skip it.
