Marsar Lake

Marsar Lake is a picturesque high altitude lake in Pulwama District of Jammu and Kashmir. It is situated on the northern slope of the Harmukh Mountain, about 5 km from Nagberan. Lying at an altitude of 3962 m, Marsar Lake is the origin of the Sharabkul Canal, which provides water to the fountains that play in the Mughal Gardens. It flows into the Lidder River. A major portion of the water of the Dal Lake and Harwan Lake come from the Marsar Lake.

There are delightful camping sites and flower meadows at Sikiwas, 24 km from here. The nearby Tarsar Lake can be approached by crossing a 243 m high bridge from Mansar Lake.

From Pahalgam, Marsar Lake is 35 km away via Aru and Lidderwat.
