Dal Lake: A Nature Lover's Paradise

A photographer's dream come true and a nature lover's paradise - explore the beauty of the Dal Lake.

Dal Lake: A Nature Lover's Paradise

The Dal Lake is a song, its lyrical ripples come to sing. It looks like a spotless mirror with the Dhauladhar mountains reflected in its crystal clear waters. This lake is perfect for an early morning walk or an afternoon jaunt. Just about a kilometre away from the Dal Lake is a picnic spot called Naddi, from where you can get a wider view of the mountains and valleys. 

Trekkers meet at Dal Lake throughout the year, as it serves as a base camp for treks around the Kareri Lake, Guna temple and Triund. There is an ancient Shiva temple on the banks of the Dal Lake, where many seek the Lord's blessings before starting off on a climb.

For the curious, there is another road that branches off from Dal Lake Road to Strawberry Hills, where you will find another little plot of paradise.
