Sight Seen : Lovable Kashmir - Floating Gardens & Lake Villages

Srinagar - Floating Gardens & Lake Villages

Much of Dal Lake is thick with foliage, lotus patches and large areas of cultivated vegetable gardens linked by channels and served by villages of stilted walk-ways. Assuming that 2014 flood damage is repaired, a great way to see these areas is by walking along Chowdary Bagh. Eventually you'll reach a footbridge and causeway leading to the pumping station near Nishat Bagh Mughal Garden, though the last 3km (after Nandpora) can be muddy and is uncomfortably rough for bicycles.
