Surrounded by poplar and willow trees, Nigeen Lake is known as the Jewel of Rings. This blue-watered off-shoot lake is connected to the famous Dal-lake through a causeway. Enclosed by Shankaracharya hills on the east and Hari Parbat on the west, it offers a panoramic view to the visitors. With the raw beauty of this place, unlike Dal Lake, Nigeen Lake is a calm, serene and peaceful getaway for those who want to spend their holiday in sheer nature!

Distance from Srinagar: 7.2 km via Hazratbal Rd.

Best time to visit: April to September
