Located at the foothills of Zabarwan mountains, the picturesque Nagin Lake is an offshoot of Dal Lake. With Hari Parbat on its west and Shankaracharya Hill on its south, the lake is flanked by beautiful willow and poplar trees, and is often known as 'nageena' meaning the jewel in the ring. The lake is linked through a causeway, which only permits walkers and bikers to enter the precincts. The causeway carries the water supply pipeline to the city of Srinagar. The lake is also linked with Khushal Sar and Gil Sar lakes via a channel called Nallah Amir Khan. It is considered a better option than the famous Dal Lake to enjoy a swim as it is deeper and less crowded.
