Wular Lake

 It is difficult to describe in mere words the beguiling beauty of Wular Lake. For one, its formidable size – this is one of Asia’s largest freshwater lakes – for another, it changes character with every few miles. The drive from Srinagar will take you to the calm waters of Manasbal, where there is no other sound but birdsong. Manasbal has often been described as the bird watcher’s paradise, and as your shikhara glides through this mirror of tranquility, you will experience yet another facet of Kashmir.From Watlab, the Wular Lake stretches away as far as the eye can see, edged by picturesque villages around terraced breeze-rippled fields of paddy, in a riotous burst of color, the sheer grandeur of the spectacular countryside at leisure.
