   Sikara and Boat Ride in Lake
 

Shikaras are narrow boats to ferry guests from Houseboats to the banks of the lake. Its also the vehicle to ferry supplies. Shikara rides in Dal Lake has been one of the romantic experiences even since Kashmir has been visited by tourists. Shikara ride offers guests a leisurely lakeside experience. Vastness of the lake being such that guests can spend a couple of hours moving around the area into different corners of the lake. Some areas around Boulevard around are very busy and where Shikaras literally jostle for space. Whereas ones a bit away from Boulevard especially around Nagin is quiet and serene.

The water bodies of the Kashmir offer breathtaking Shikara boat rides. The joy of smoothly gliding over the water with the crisp sound of the paddle indeed is a feeling to be imbibed. Dal & Nagin lakes offer joyous shikara boat rides in Srinagar city. While on a shikara boat, the view of Zabarwan hills is just thrilling and with rhythmic tossing of water waves with the boat making the experience of the boat ride a pure fascination.


The flower and boutique vendors on the shikara boats make the voyage more charming.

There are several shikara boat ghats alongside the Dal lake banks of Boulevard road.
