The deepest portion of Wular Lake is known as Mota Khon or Gulf of Corpses and the dead bodies of those drowned in the lake reach this deepest point — giving Mota Khon its name. There is a garden at the top of a hill by the side of the lake and the tourists can get a full view of this enchanting lake from this hill top park!
