Dal

Lake
The

Dal Lake

which has the length of 8 Km long and a width of 4 Km, spreads over a total of 26 Sq. Km. The fascinating

Dal Lake

is divided into two smaller ones the Lokut (small) and Bod (big)

Dal

. The south western part of the lake has a maximum depth of approximately 12 M. the

Dal Lake

gets some of its water from spring but is also supplemented by water from the mountain lake, Mar Sar.

In the western part of the Lake one can glimpse a few islands, some bigger, some smaller. Its shores are very fertile and surrounded by willows. Potato, tomato, pumpkin, cucumber, radish and lots of other vegetables are grown here cultivation of the floating gardens which also lie in this part of the lake is another interesting feature. These gardens consist of reed rafts of different lengths and a width of approximately one and a half by three meters and are covered by 1020 CM thick layer of earth and mud. Vegetables and melons are grown on these artificial floating islands.

Dal Lake

is, initially, one of the most confusing parts of Srinagar for it's not really one lake at all, but three. Further more much of it is hardly what one would expect a lake to be like - it's a maze of intricate waterways and channels, floating islands of vegetation, houseboats that look so firmly moored they could almost be islands and hotels on islands which look like they could simply float away.
