Manasbal Lake, Srinagar

3.2
#5 of 7 in Nature in Srinagar
A great day trip idea from Srinagar, Manasbal Lake mostly appeals to bird-watchers, as the area surrounding the body of water attracts many different aquatic birds. The rootstocks of the lotus plant, which grows in the lake, are harvested and marketed from here, as well as eaten by the local people.

Where to stay in Srinagar

The moderate climate of Srinagar has made it a popular destination for locals during the summer, hence its good range of accommodations. Hotels basic and luxury, great and small, jostle for position alongside the main waterways, and across from the city's many historic gardens. However, staying on a houseboat on Dal Lake remains the most iconic way to ejoy your Srinagar holiday, with options ranging from budget to high-end. If you don't fancy spending your nights on the water, the palatial scale of the main tourist area makes it one of the more relaxing and popular areas to stay in. More cost-effective accommodations sit on the side streets of the residential districts further to the north.
