Location : Kashmir Region, J&K
Water Skiing Sites: Dal, Nagin & Manasbal Lakes
Best Season: May To End Of August

Water sports are the 'fun' aspect of Kashmir. The Dal and Nagin lakes in Srinagar and the Manasbal Lake, 32-km from Srinagar are the best places for water-skiing!

The largest expanse of the Dal, the Boddal, has privately owned 'bathing boats' which hire out motor launches, water-skies and trained instructors. There are more bathing boats at the Nagin Lake and also a government run Institute of Water Sports. The Nagin lake too has trained instructors and is more popular because of its clean water.

A Natural Treasure Located In Isolation
Manasbal Lake, approachable from Srinagar by road, is secluded from the rest of the world by the hills that surround it.
Serene, with a mirror like sheen on its surface makes Manasbal an attractive water sports resort. Not only one can hire the latest water-skiing equipment but also specially trained instructors impart lessons to the initiated. Throughout the summer season in Kashmir - from May to the end of August - the water of the lakes is pleasant for water sports. The Tourist's huts and bungalows are available on all the above resorts to make it an overnight getaway.
