Below are a few pictures that I clicked of sunset at Dal Lake during my recent trip to Kashmir. These pictures were all taken on different days. But one thing that remained the same was the sunset view at the lake was always beautiful.
I was really very keen on getting some good sunrise and sunset shots in Srinagar. I spent some time researching it before I flew into the city. But thanks to the late sleepy morning, I could not manage to capture sunrise on a single day. I did get some good sunset pictures though, posted below.
There are several places in Srinagar where you can go to click sunsets. Dal Lake of course is the center of it all and the other spots like Nishat Bagh and Pari Mahal are around it.
If you are however sitting on the banks of Dal then finding a good spot will be tough. The lake is huge and there are trees and structures in it that block the sunset view. You will see the sun going down and then it will just vanish somewhere behind the trees.
Pari Mahal is another good spot for sunset photography but the issue remains the same. Sun starts to go down and then vanishes behind a hill. The best view in my opinion is from somewhere near Ghat no. 23.
I did learn about a particular Sunset point near Dal on my last day in Srinagar while I was sitting at Pari Mahal. So I did not get to go there during this trip but it is definitely on my to-do list for the next time I am in Srinagar.
Sunset at Dal Lake
To begin with, here is a video that you can take a look at showing a beautiful sunset from the banks of Dal Lake.
