Manasbal Lake is located in Jhelum valley, 30 km north of city of Srinagar enroute to the Wular Lake via Shadipur. Surrounded by three villages Jakorbal, Kondabal and Gratbal, the picturesque lake is also known as ‘Bird’s Paradise’. This is the deepest lake of Kashmir and its beauty is further enhanced by the presence of beautiful lotus flowers. This quiet, secluded, crystal clear green water lake was named after the sacred lake of Mansarovar. The Mughal Garden ‘Jharokha’ meaning bay window built by Nur Jahan overlooks the lake. The ruins of a 17th century fort, called the Darogabagh and Jharokha garden on the northern shore of the lake are attractions for tourists. Apart from natural beauty and bird watching activity, tourists can also enjoy boat riding, water skiing, fishing and many more.
