While landing in the valley, the best thing you will experience is the fresh air. The breeze that blows even in the city is so refreshing for an outsider. The famous dal lake is blessed with so many good things that would give you a heavenly feeling. The first thing that you will love about the lake is the alluring surrounding of the mountains and the houseboats that add artificiality to the lake. The shikaara ride around Dal Lake is so heartwarming but I will suggest you do it in the evening time when the sun is about to set. The colors of the sun at that time mix with the smooth waters of the lake which gives it the look of the Golden waters. Everything looks calm and serene at that time. I consider it as one of the Magical moments in Kashmir.

Sometimes you will get to see the view of the mountains, that would be surrounding you with a lake nearby. Sometimes you will experience the highness of the valley, from where you can get to see the whole area from the top. The view that you would get to see after crossing all the difficult passes would drive you into so much joy, which is one of the Magical moments in Kashmir.
