An alpine lake with an elevation of 3710 meters located in the vicinity of Sonamarg, Krishnasar is one of the most beautiful lakes in Kashmir. Enclosed by dense forest, the lake is a must-visit tourist attraction for the nature lover and photography enthusiasts. It is the snow-capped mountains that serve as the background adding charm and beauty to the lake which gives a wonderful opportunity to the photographers to click the best ever shot.
In addition to this, Krishansar Lake is home to brown trout which means besides exploring the picturesque beauty of the lake and the surrounding areas, tourists can indulge in other fun-filled activities like trout fishing and angling.
