Some rivers are also known for their historical importance. both types of lakes are there in our country natural and man-made. today I would like to talk about a lake where I visited several times with my family and is dal lake in the summer capital of Jammu and is also known as” the jewel in the crown of Kashmir” it is a beautiful lake which adds to the beauty of Kashmir.

The small boat or popularly known as Shikara ride is one of the most enjoying experience for tourists visiting Srinagar. You can get Shikara from various locations around Dal Lake. By the side of the lake, the rate chart is displayed. Usually, it will be a two-hour ride which is enough and it will cost you Rs 800 ( Rs 400 per hour ). Do not board a Shikara at the very entrance of the Dal lake, this is a channel type so it will take more time to reach open water. The construction cost of one Shikara is almost one lakh and life of one Shikara is nearly 20 years.

Dal lake is a market itself, during your cruise on Shikara the boatman will offer you various other services offered by different vendors. You can take a photo with traditional Kashmir dress and for this different boatman with all accessories are available, in between the lake they can take your photo and those photos will be delivered at your hotel or houseboat. Charges are the bit higher side where they will be insisting you take minimum 3 photos each costing Rs 150/-.Per Day on average they earn Rs 2000 based on the number of rides they take. The business is for four months starting from April to July. Other than the peak tourist seasons in summer Shikara owners join other business like trekking.

Villages by the side of Dal lake grows vegetables. Here water level is low and you can see various types of vegetables on the small branches while travelling on the Shikara. There are shops selling traditional Kashmiri dress and shawls. These shops are on water and openings are towards Lakeside.
