One thing a person can really relate J&K with are lakes. The city of Srinagar is known for its lakes, Dal being the centre of attraction in the sightseeing itinerary. One can almost see the whole city travelling through a Shikara on Dal, as most of the sightseeing places are easily accessible via Dal. Quite scenic lakes are also situated around Jammu too, including Surinsar and Mansar Lakes. If one lures to visit the lakes on the high altitude then check out the lakes Pangong Tso and Tso Moriri in Ladakh, which beside offering a natural panorama are quite good places of Jeep Safari.
