Kashmir is quite famous for a number of picturesque lakes and rivers.

The less adventurous people go for the quiet Shikara boat rides on the Dal Lake and Nagin Lake of Srinagar. The Shikara rides offer peace and serenity as well as the option of sightseeing some of the beautiful places on the embankments. Other options include riding motorboats or going for Jet skiing.
If there are two important facets that define Sonamarg, they are vast leisure valleys and adrenaline rushing activities. The Indus River offers grade 4 rapids for whitewater rafting. Anyone from experienced rafters to first-timers can indulge in rafting.
