Surinsar Lake

Surinsar, at a distance of 9 kms from Mansar and about 42 km from Jammu is bordered by hills and dense forests. It is a smaller lake but as picturesque as Lake Mansar with an island situated in the middle. Religious taboos do not permit swimming or boating in the lake. It is a wetland and has a bird sanctuary rich in avifauna in its periphery.

Water birds of variety make this lake a bird watcher’s haven. To spend quality time one can visit Surinsar Lake having water based lotus garden. The lake is a great picturesque spot in summer when the surface is covered with countless lotus flowers. The hills in the backdrop of the lake separate it from the urban areas and provide a calm and divine feel.

There are many attractions and places to see and the tranquil peace in the lap of Mother Nature is quite refreshing. Excellent accommodation units with all the facilities near the lake are being provided by the Tourism Department. The lake and nearby area is eye soothing and known for the divine natural beauty.
