This is one of the favourites amongst tourists. Dal Lake is one of the most beautiful lakes. The shikaras sailing on the water offers you a picture perfect moment. There is also an option of staying in luxurious houseboats on the lake. Paddle or hire a boat in the morning to visit the floating market. Just sit back, read a book, hear the chirping of birds, look around and soak in the exceptional beauty.
